Automatic transmission fluid becomes heat fatigued and accumulates moisture over time which can lead to automatic transmission damage if not serviced regularly. It should be replaced every 2 years or 30,000 miles.
Automatic transmission fluid becomes heat fatigued and accumulates moisture over time which can lead to automatic transmission damage if not serviced regularly. The filter should be replaced at this time a well. This service should be performed every 2 years or 30,000 miles.
Brake fluid accumulates moisture and contamination from component wear over time and unless replaced every 30,000 miles or 2 years, can cause brake system damage.
Over time the Cabin Filter(s) will accumulate dirt, pollen and debris which can leak in to the passenger compartment if left unchecked. They should be replaced every year or 15,000 miles.
Engine coolant breaks down, gets rusty and becomes contaminated with debris from component wear over time and can cause engine or cooling system damage if not replaced every 2 years or 30,0000 miles.
Differential fluid breaks down and becomes contaminated with moisture over time and can lead to differential damage from a lack of proper lubrication. It should be replaced every 2 years or 30,000 miles.
The Manual Transmission fluid breaks down and becomes contaminated with moisture over time and can lead to transmission damage from a lack of proper lubrication. It should be replaced every 2 years or 30,000 miles.
It is important to rotate the tires from front to rear every 5000-7500 miles so that they wear evenly. This may not be possible on some vehicles because of directional tread design or rim size differences.
Spark Plug terminals wear down over time and can lead to engine misfires and increased exhaust emissions. Replace according to the vehicle manufacturers recommended replacement interval.
Transfer Case fluid breaks down and becomes contaminated with moisture over time and can lead to transfer case damage from a lack of proper lubrication. It should be replaced every 2 years or 30,000 miles.

I would like to extend the life of my cars engine. What can I do to possibly get 150,000 more miles out of my car. Right now it runs a little hard, the belts squeek horribly when it rains or its cold out side. The temp. gauge sometimes run in the middle or above towards hot . What can I do ?
Car has 200,200 mi on it and was told not to flush the transmission due to it never being changed. However, it was said that I just drop the trans fluid pan, empty it, change filter, replace the fluid without flushing the transmission. Is this true?
