Vehicle fluids help keep your FIAT 500 running correctly and efficiently, which is why it’s critical to keep an eye on a number of them, such as the oil and transmission. Come on down to our FIAT service center near Auburndale, FL to have our expert technicians take a look at the fluids in your car to ensure they’re all adequately filled.
Your engine depends on oil for a number of reasons. Not only does it keep the powertrain’s components properly lubricated, but it also keeps it free of harmful substances and cool to prevent overheating. An oil change is needed roughly every 5,000 to 8,000 miles, depending on your specific vehicle and driving habits.
Radiator fluid, which is antifreeze coolant, ensures your engine doesn’t overheat. This fluid helps prevent rust and keeps dirt, sludge, and old antifreeze from inhibiting performance. It depletes over time, which can lead to leaks and component failures if left ignored.
Transmission fluid is the lubrication your transmission must have. It also protects metal surfaces from wear, enhances cooling function, and increases rotational speed. When it gets low, you’ll notice your FIAT 500L or FIAT 500X experience delays in shifting and gear slippage.
