How Often Should I Check the Fluids in my Car?

The engine of your MINI Cooper model works hard. The engine and all the mechanical workings work together to produce hear and energy. Your vehicle needs fresh oil to ensure it is working at its best. Have you thought about other fluids your vehicle needs such as transmission fluid, brake fluid, and engine coolant? Those fluids are just as important as motor oil.

How Often Should You Check Your Car Fluids?

  • We recommend getting an oil change every 5,000 to 7,500 miles, depending on the make and model of your vehicle. Some factors that indicate that you may need an oil change sooner are your driving conditions and the weather conditions.
  • Depending on your driving habits, you can get your transmission fluid checked every 30,000-60,000 miles.
  • Our service professionals can check your engine coolant in the summer and winter seasons.
  • You can receive a brake fluid check when you schedule an oil change at our MINI service center near Quincy.
