Under the hood of your BMW vehicle, you will find the engine—the engine is one of the most important components of your vehicle. Motor oil ensures your vehicle is performing at its best, but what about other fluids such as transmission fluid, brake fluid, and engine coolant? These fluids are also important!

How Often Should You Check Your Car Fluids?

Usually, we recommend getting an oil change every 3,000-5,000 but some models can drive up to 7,500 miles on an oil change. Of course, these numbers depend on the make and model of your vehicle. Your driving conditions and different weather conditions can also play a factor.

You can get your transmission fluid checked every 30,000-60,000 miles, but some newer models can go longer. Just like motor oil, your driving conditions can affect the transmission fluid.

It’s best to check coolant before the summer and before the winter seasons—this is when the weather changes most, especially near Scituate.

You can receive a brake fluid check when you schedule an oil change at our BMW service department located near Braintree.
