Thirsty? 3 fluids your car likely needs, stat

Imagine yourself after a long-run. You might find yourself searching desperately for that water bottle, looking to quench your thirst. You might find it surprising, but your vehicle feels the same way, except your car requires more than just one fluid to quench its thirst. Here are three fluids your vehicle needs: 

Engine Oil: This is an easy one; we all know our cars need this. We may know that your vehicle needs this, but do you know what this fluid actually does? Your engine oil is responsible for keeping all the components in your vehicle lubricated and functioning smoothly. 
Transmission Fluid: Engine oil might be important, but so is transmission fluid. This fluid is responsible for lubricating your vehicle’s gears and keeping them from overheating. For a smooth and safe ride, transmission fluid is a must. 
Radiator Fluid: This fluid has many names -- coolant, antifreeze -- but whatever you call it, this fluid should not go unchecked. In warm weather months, radiator fluid especially comes into play. This fluid simultaneously lowers the freezing and boiling temperature in your engine. 
If you believe your vehicle is thirsty for any of these fluids, don’t wait, and turn to the technicians at Ponder Auto Repair. We will make sure these three fluids and the many others in your vehicle’s engine are at the optimal levels.  Schedule an appointment with the technicians at Ponder Auto Repair in Johnson City, TN. Don’t hesitate to bring your car to us for auto repair and maintenance. We can’t wait to see you!
