Fluid Flush Service in Oklahoma City 

Fluid Flushes and Service at Audi Oklahoma City

One way to keep your Audi in prime condition is to flush out the fluids and have it serviced at Audi Oklahoma City. Fluid flushes help to ensure the systems in your Audi are running smoothly as you drive around Oklahoma City, Norman, and Moore.

What is a Fluid Flush?

A fluid flush happens anytime the fluid is removed from the system and replaced with clean fluid. Your oil change is a type of fluid flush, and it is required more often than other flushes.

Dirt and grime get into the systems of your vehicle and can contaminate the fluids. It may make them less effective or even cause harm. A fluid flush removes the old fluid and all the contaminants while replacing it with clean fluid.

Types of Fluid Flushes

Each type of fluid flush has its own recommended schedule. Here are the main fluids to flush out in your vehicle:

Transmission: Dirty transmission fluid can cause serious damage to your vehicle. It needs to be changed somewhere between 75,000 and 100,000 miles but may need to be more often if you drive in rough conditions.

Engine Coolant: Anti-freeze should be changed out every 30,000 to 35,000 miles or at least checked to make sure the coolant is clean. The coolant protects your engine from getting too hot, so more often is better than letting it go too long.

Power Steering: Many times, power steering fluid can last for as long as you own the vehicle, but it also takes a lot of stress from driving. Bad fluid can damage the pumps and hoses, which could make your power steering fail.

Brake Fluid: This fluid should be replaced more often than other fluids to keep brakes working in prime condition. This flush is recommended about every two to three years or 24,000-36,000 miles.

Fuel Injection: The fuel system should be cleaned about every 30,000 to 35,000 miles. A clean system will help improve fuel efficiency.

When You Don't Service Your Vehicle

Most of the time, you won't notice if you skip a flush or wait longer than recommended. At least, not right away. Your vehicle won't stop at mile 36,001 if you miss the 36,000-mile flush. However, failure to schedule these system flushes can reduce performance and increase wear and tear on your vehicle. In time, the system will fail because it wasn't kept up.

Some fluid flushes are more critical than others, such as oil changes, brake fluid flushes, and even transmission flushes. Other systems may not need to be flushed as often to keep them working the way they should. Your service technicians will be the best people to talk to about when to have a fluid flush on your model.
