When to Change My Car’s Fluids

On average, your vehicle's fluid should be changed every couple of years, or after a certain mileage interval has passed. Thankfully, our Ram dealership in Eastland, TX, is staffed with certified Dodge service technicians who understand your car, truck, van or SUV inside and out. Bring your vehicle in for a checkup today and we'll diagnose whether you need any fluid replacement.

Besides Oil Changes, What Fluids Do You Need to Replace?

Wondering what fluids need to be changed in your car? The following fluids should be monitored to ensure you replace them when the time is right:

Brake Fluid

This helps your brakes run smoothly. You want to ensure that brake fluid never gets low, otherwise the brakes will not be lubricated properly. On average, you should aim to change your brake fluid every two years.

Power Steering Fluid

While it only needs to be replaced every 50,000 to 100,000 miles, power steering fluid is a key ingredient to ensuring your Ram truck or Dodge van is performing at its best.

Transmission Fluid

To keep your car running efficiently, be sure to never run low on transmission fluid. This is especially true if you have an automatic transmission. Like oil, you can check your transmission fluid level easily with a dipstick. Depending on your vehicle, your transmission fluid should be changed every 50,000 to 100,000 miles.


Don't let your car overheat in the Texas sun! Also known as antifreeze, coolant ensures that your vehicle runs at a comfortable temperature. Coolant should be replaced every two to three years, and it's easy to check by opening the coolant cap under your hood.
