Check Your Fluid Levels Before Holiday Travel

With the holiday season upon us, many families will be hitting the roads and driving to visit with friends and family. In order to prevent any breakdowns or delays in your travel plans, make sure you are properly maintaining your car’s fluid levels. Here are some tips on how to maintain your car’s fluid levels from the Rancho Santa Margarita Honda team:

  • Motor Oil - Your car’s oil should be checked often and changed every 3,000-7,500 miles. Oil is essential in lubricating and protecting your engine. Make sure your oil is at the proper level and does not need to be changed before heading out on your holiday travels.
  • Coolant - Whether you live where it is hot or where it is cold, coolant helps protect your engine from freezing and overheating. Make sure you have the proper amount of coolant before your trip.
  • Transmission Fluid - One of the most expensive things to replace on your car is the transmission. Make sure you are checking your transmission fluid level periodically and changing it as needed. Proper maintenance of your transmission fluid will save you trouble in the future.

Here at Rancho Santa Margarita Honda, we want to make sure everyone has a safe and happy holiday. We hope these tips will help avoid any holiday travel headaches!
