Can Flushing the Fluids in a Vehicle Increase Its Longevity?

Regularly scheduled maintenance is important to keeping a safe and reliable vehicle on the hot desert roads.

Las Vegas, NV, January 10, 2013 --( ( -- National Auto Repair, a Las Vegas Auto Repair shop, with 4 convent locations helping Las Vegas area drivers. There have been many improvements in technology and this has made better driving vehicles. Today’s cars still need regular maintenance to run properly. Many services preformed on a car help to keep it on the road but, many times an overlooked service, which can increase the longevity of a vehicle if taken care of on a regular schedule, is the flushing of the various fluids.

“All fluids, like motor oil, coolant, transmission fluid, brake fluid and power steering fluids help to keep a vehicle running efficiently while, keeping the moving parts lubricated,” say's National Auto Repair owner, John Sain. He adds, “Just like any other part on your vehicle, these fluids undergo ‘heavy wear and tear’ and break down over time in this hot dry Las Vegas climate, making them less effective.”

Notice that there are two types of fluids in a vehicle. One type formulated is grease, used to lube the parts of the vehicle, while the other type is for hydraulic-like movements which keep a vehicle's performance at top running condition. By flushing and replacing fluids, the associated systems can continue to run as designed.

Fluid flushes are an important part, and recommended by Las Vegas Auto Repair, of your vehicles maintenance, especially if a person would like to keep their vehicle on the road for as long as possible. As these old fluids break down, they cause the engine and parts to work harder, which will cause problems and breakdowns with more extensive repairs.

By utilizing the information in the owner’s manual, and the advice from the Las Vegas Auto Repair technician, car owners can decide the best schedule for fluid flushes. According to John, "Knowledge is power. At National Auto Repair, We help our customers make informed decisions when it comes to maintaining and repairing their vehicles.”
