Its important to routinely check the fluids in your vehicle, especially in extreme environments like New Mexico. Even your windshield wiper fluid might need to be changed with the season due to freezing temperatures in the winter and boiling temperatures in the summer. . Our dry summers are also a concern. The chemicals in your oils, coolant and transmission fluid can break down when exposed to heat and begin to loose their ability to work efficiently.
Fortunately , every service at Toyota of Santa Fe includes a multipoint inspection that includes checking those fluids. Learn about them in your owner’s manual. AND we use the correct fluid for your year’s model.
These fluids should be full and fresh:
- Radiator Coolant/Anti-freeze Fluid
- Transmission Fluid
- Power Steering Fluid
- Air Conditioning Coolant
- Brake Fluid
- Washer Fluid
- Motor Oil
