Jacksonville Fluids and Filters Replacement and Maintenance

Engine Oil & Filter


Engine oil cools, lubricates and cleans critical components in your automobile’s engine. The oil filter serves to sift out contaminants in the oil.

 

Maintenance and automobile:

Please refer to your owner’s manual for correct oil and interval guidelines recommended by your manufacturer for your specific automobile. Some manufacturers now recommend extended periods between oil changes, if you are a driver who drives under “normal” conditions.

 

All of the following are considered “extreme” or “severe” driving conditions, which would require more frequent oil changes:

  • You drive often in heavy stop and go traffic
  • You frequently make short trips in your automobile
  • The air conditions you drive in are often dusty or dirty
  • You live in a cold weather region
  • You tow a trailer, both, or other item

By definition, millions and millions of motorists are driving under what are considered extreme conditions. A good rule of thumb is to have the oil and filter changed every 3,000 miles by a Jacksonville AAMCO mechanic.

 

Air Filter


Air filters catch dirt particles that can damage engine components.

 

Maintenance and automobile:

The air filter should be checked by a Jacksonville AAMCO mechanic every time you have the oil and filter changed (and is included in the Jacksonville AAMCO’s ProtectCheck). Driving with a dirty filter may lower your gas mileage and impact your automobile’s performance. Please refer to your owner’s manual for the air filter change interval guideline recommended by your manufacturer for your specific automobile. Bring your automobile to the mechanics at Jacksonville AAMCO.

 

Power Steering Fluid


Power steering fluid, much like transmission fluid, is a specially formulated oil, in this case for use in power steering systems.

 

Maintenance and automobile:

The power steering fluid should be checked by a Jacksonville AAMCO mechanic every time you have the oil and filter changed (and is included in the Jacksonville AAMCO’s ProtectCheck). Please refer to your owner’s manual for the power steering fluid recommended by your manufacturer for your specific automobile.
