Fluid Top Off

Cooling System Service

Windshield Washer Fluid

At Brittain’s we always check and top off your windshield washer fluid. During winter months, we recommend a solution that is rated to 20 below zero to keep it from freezing on your windshield

Our trained technicians will:
1. Remove old differential and or transfer case fluid
2. Replaced with new fluid that contains the correct additives to help keep the seals, gears, and bearings operating properly.
3. New fluid is added according to owner’s manual recommendations.


The radiator in your vehicle cools your engine and needs water and coolant (antifreeze) to function. We check and top off antifreeze with each visit.

Power Steering

You can exhibit a number of symptoms when the level of power steering fluid is low in the reservoir. If you are experiencing any of the following problems with your car's power steering, you have us check your fluid levels.

• Noisy steering
• Jerky or jumpy power steering
• Hard to turn the steering wheel
• Screeching steering
• Puddle or stains under the vehicle

Brake Fluid

Brake fluid provides hydraulic pressure to actuate your brake system's pistons and provide braking.

Brittain’s checks your brake fluid as part of our 18 point inspection. We will let you know if your brake fluid needs changing. You should have your brake fluid changed if the pedal feels “spongy,” or if the brake lines are ever opened up during service. At Brittain’s we examine the brake fluid—it should be yellowish and translucent. If it looks dirty or contaminated, it’s probably due for a change.

Brake Fluid

Clutch Fluid


Brittain’s checks your clutch fluid as part of our 18 point inspection. We will let you know if your clutch fluid needs changing.

If your clutch has been feeling “spongy” or doesn’t want to fully engage or disengage, you should let Brittain’s know and we will check the fluid levels.

Cooling System Service

Cooling System Service

Your vehicle’s radiator is the heart of its cooling system. To function properly, your radiator must be clean, free of leaks, clear of blockages and filled with proper coolant.
Our trained technicians will:
1. Coolant system evaluation
2. Inspection of all hoses
3. Removal and replacement of virtually all of the old coolant

Transmission Fluid

Automatic transmissions have been known to operate smoothly for thousands of miles, which is why it is usually taken for granted by car owners. However, given its limited lifespan, it runs out one day and the resultant friction in the system hinders with the smooth functioning of the car. At Brittain’s we always check transmission fluid levels during our 18 point oil change inspection.

Fuel Injection Service

Why should you have your car’s fuel injector cleaned?

• Improves fuel efficiency • Increases horsepower • Repairs performance

This is very good place. I like the service. Very fast very good very pleasant experience. The technicians were very helpful and well informed. Thank you to everyone at Brittain's Oil.
Very quick to get your oil change in about 10 minutes. I brought my own oil and filter. Let me just say I tried the K&N premium oil filter from Walmart for the first time so I can get a really good feel for it on a 1,000-mile trip to Florida in my minivan. Engine runs nicer/stronger now. Didn't burn a quart of oil this time around to Florida. Highly recommend K&N. Hope this place carries it someday.
