The Environmental Consequences of Automated Fluid Leaks

When you have an automotive fluid leak, you’re likely aware of the problems it causes to your vehicle. Low fluid levels — be it engine oil, coolant, transmission fluid or any other fluid — can create major problems and force your vehicle off the road (and put some hurt on your wallet). If these fluid levels are low because of leaks in your lines, gaskets and fittings, there’s another problem to worry about: environmental damage.

Effects of Automotive Fluid Leaks on the Environment
Oil and coolant leaks not only cause unattractive stains on our driveways, parking lots and roads, but they can also seep into the ground and pollute waterways. It’s important to understand the consequences of motor oil, coolant and other fluid pollution and seal…

When Should I Replace My Transmission Fluid?

No matter which engine fluid you’re talking about, changing it at regular intervals is important (but all too often ignored). In the case of automatic transmission fluid, or ATF, clean fluid does a better job of lubricating moving parts and minimizing transmission internal wear. Fresh ATF also distributes heat better, extending the life of your transmission. It’s literally one of the hardest-working fluids in your vehicle.

If you’ve ever had to have your automatic transmission serviced, you know how costly it is. Transmissions are complex beasts. Modern automatic transmissions are incredibly advanced and include intricate valves and passages that route transmission fluid where it is needed. When your transmission fluid starts to break down, wear can create small particles and contamination that wear out your…
