Subaru Maintenance Tips for Madison Area Drivers

Madison area Subaru Service Center

From time to time, your vehicle needs a bit of tender love and care to be running to the best of its ability. That’s why your Madison area Subaru Service Center recommends checking certain fluids in your car in order to maintain your vehicle’s health. Checking the level of these fluids is not only easy, but takes only a few minutes! The most important fluids every Subaru owner should check is coolant level and brake fluid.

It is a frightening thought driving a car without working brakes. At Subaru of Morristown, we strongly emphasize how important it is to check your brake fluid level monthly. Running your vehicle on low brake fluid can result in the brake pads eventually becoming worn, requiring expensive replacements. While we do not recommend you add brake fluid to your Subaru, you can keep an eye on the level. Make sure you are parked on a level service and lift the hood of your car. Find the brake reservoir and locate the markings on the side of the container. The markings say “min” and “max.” If the fluid level is at the min mark or the brake warning comes on your Subaru dashboard, Madison area drivers should bring their vehicle to a technician as soon as possible.

How to Check Your Subaru’s Coolant Level

We have all seen that one unfortunate person caught on the side of the road with the car hood popped and the engine excessively smoking. In that scenario, this person did not have enough coolant in the car, which is vital fluid to support the vehicle’s engine temperature. To check your coolant levels, open the hood and find the yellow cap that says “coolant.” The coolant reservoir has “low” and high” tick marks. If the coolant level is at the “low” tick mark, fill it up using a Subaru approved coolant. We suggest checking coolant every fuel stop, but make sure the engine has cooled down. If you are frequently filling your coolant levels or experience an overheating engine, bring you car into Subaru of Morristown where we have experienced technicians ready to assist you and your vehicle’s needs.
