Understanding the Different Types of Oil and Fluid
Engine Oil: Acting as a lubricant, it reduces friction among the internal parts of your engine. Without it, you’re looking at a vehicle ready to break down within minutes. Without engine oil, your engine can overheat as fast as 10 minutes. Overheating is dangerous to longevity and roads if the engine shuts down.
Transmission Fluid: This viscous liquid ensures your gears change without grinding or overheating. For manual transmissions, gear oil gets used. In other words, transmission fluid or gear oil is essential if you want your transmission to have a long and fruitful life.
Power Steering Fluid: Imagine trying to steer a heavy-duty truck without power steering fluid. The power steering fluid makes maneuvering a breeze, giving you control even in tight spots. At high speeds, even slight alterations on the steering wheel become stiff without the help of steering fluid.
Differential Fluid: Our last star on the list is differential fluid. Operating in the shadows of the differential system, it keeps all those gears running smoothly. It might not be the show's star, but things would grind to a painful halt without it.
How Often Should You Get These Fluids Checked?
Fluids do not last forever and degrade over time. Engine Oil needs to get swapped every 5-8 thousand kilometers. Transmission and differential fluid need a replacement every 50,000-80,000 kilometers. That is 10-15 trips across Canada from the longest distance from east to west!
