The Right Automotive Fluids For Jacksonville Drivers

The Right Automotive Fluids For Jacksonville Drivers

What grade of oil should I use?

All those automotive fluids can be confusing for Jacksonville car owners. Recent years have brought new grades of engine oil, types of transmission fluid, coolant, and brake fluid. The right fluid protects your vehicle and helps it perform at its best. The wrong fluid won’t work as well for Jacksonville car owners and could even cause damage.

In addition to new grades of engine oil, many Japanese Imports now leave the factory with synthetic oil. Jacksonville car owners should always use the grade recommended by their automobile manufacturer  and type of oil in their engine.

All coolant, also called antifreeze, used to be green. Now there are several other colors of coolant sold at JJ’s Custom Import Repair, Inc. in Jacksonville. Each type is designed to protect the cooling system components that are particular to your vehicle. The wrong stuff can void your Japanese Import cooling system warranty and could even cause engine damage.

Most passenger vehicles on Jacksonville roads today use either DOT 3, DOT 4 or DOT 5 brake fluid. Your Japanese Import power brake system is specifically designed to use ONE of these types – you need the right one. Higher numbers do not necessarily mean a higher, upgraded fluid.

Now, the vital thing is knowing that your vehicle requires specific grades and types of fluids and that using the right fluids is good and using the wrong ones is bad. Once you’ve got that down, it’s easy to remember to check with your hones JJ’s Custom Import Repair, Inc. service specialist or Japanese Import owner’s manual to find out which automotive fluids to use.
