When customers come by DRIVE AutoCare, they often ponder on whether they actually need a fluid flush when our technicians recommend it. There are many factors that come into play. Today, we will “flush” out the truth and discuss how fluid flushes can benefit your vehicle.
What Are Fluid Flushes or Fluid Exchanges?
Fluid flush is the process of removing and cleaning out the entire system of the old fluid and any sludgy remains. Afterward, your mechanic will replace it with new and clean fluid. It can also treat problems of corrosion and excess build-up in older vehicles. While it is okay to top off certain fluids in newer vehicles, there will come a time when a fluid flush is more beneficial for you.
In fact, many auto manufacturers recommend fluid flushes in the owner’s manual. You can learn more about it, including other information such as the fluid specifications, fluid exchange intervals, and how to perform the service.
Fluid flushes have shown tremendous improvement in extending the life of vehicles. When you flush the cooling system, engine, transmission, and others, you protect its parts from wear and tear. And as a result, you minimize the wear and tear of the system.
