Question about 2007 Pontiac G6 GT Convertible
Fluids refers to motor oil, antifreeze (engine coolant), transmission fluid, brake fluid and power steering fluid. All of these need to be changed but at different time or mileage schedules. Never let oil get over 6,000 miles, regardless of how much oil life is left. Metal particles too small to be caught in the oil filter build up in the oil to high levels which cause harm to your engine. Extended antifreeze lasts for 5 years. But if the antifreeze is cloudy looking, change it. Before each winter test the freeze protection level with an antifreeze tester. Negative 34 degrees is the minimum protection level that you need to have. Transmission fluid varies by mileage for each car. Every 30,000 to 50,000 miles is typical interval for changing it. But check your owners manual to know the exact mileage to change it. Brake fluid change at 3 to 4 year intervals. If the fluid is black and not transparent, it is long over due for a change. The fluid should be clear or transparent like water. Some discoloration is ok. Brake fluid absorbs water over time and can freeze in the brake lines in the winter months. Power steering fluid should be either clear like water or bright red. Some discoloration is ok. But if it looks and smells bad than it needs to be changed too.
