How-To Change The Fluids In Your Vehicle Motor

Type of Automotive Fluids – 
Green or yellow - glycol-based inorganic, contains silicates – prevent corrosion - 3 years or 36,000 miles
Orange – glycol-based organic acid, for Long Life/ Extended Life coolant - 5 years or 150,000
Yellow/orange – hybrid mixture of the both types with nitrites added - 5 years or 150,000Volks & Audi 

Brake Fluid with Boiling Points
Dot 3 (140C) and Dot 4 (155C) are mostly clear but available in Pale Yellow, Blue, or Crimson Red. Dot 5.1 (180C) is available in Purple & Violet colors. Dot 3, Dot 4, and Dot 5.1 will destroy paint. Dot 5 (180C) is mostly clear but available in Pale Yellow and Blue - not Crimson Red. Dot 5 will not hurt paint - contains silicon.

Note: Color is not a distinguishing characteristic of brake fluids. It is primarily used to identify leaks. 

Engine / Motor Oil S = Gasoline ( Petrol)  and C = Diesel
Viscosity rating - 5w20, 5w30, 10w30, 10w40, 15w40, 20w50 (racing motor oils), and 80w90, 75w90 gear oils
API rating gasoline– SN - Introduced 2005 - improved oxidation resistance, deposit protection and wear protection, also better low temperature performance over the life of the oil, and also meet European and Asian auto makers requirements. It has reduced phosphorus anti-wear additive.
API rating diesel - CJ-4 - Introduced 2002 for diesels.  It meets previous CH-4 (1998), CG-4 (1995), and CF-4 (1990), and all older four-stroke diesel engines. CF-2 (1994) is the API classification for two-stroke diesels.
For muscle cars or hot rods with older flat tappet camshafts, you should be aware that SN motor oils contain lower levels of anti-scuff additive called "ZDDP" - Zinc Dialkyl Dithio Phosphate to extend the life of the catalytic converters. Phosphorus can contaminate the catalyst over time if the engine uses oil, causing an increase in tailpipe emissions.

Power steering Fluid Types 
Pentosin CHF 7.1, CHF 11S and CHF 202 – This fluid should not be mixed with ATF fluids.
Multiple versions of Dexron are sold by OE and aftermarket suppliers. Please refer to owner’s manual or service manual for the correct Dexron type...

Windshield washer fluid – should clean road grime and bugs, remove light snow and ice, create water-beading to help keep windshield clear, streak-free cleaning, and provide -25°F freeze protection.

Automatic Transmission Fluids 
Type F –Mostly used in cars in the 1970s vintage transmissions.
Dexron/Mercon – most commonly used ATF. Both include friction modifiers.
HFM Fluids – Stands for Highly Friction Modified includes friction modifiers for vehicles that need a lot of reduced friction.
Synthetic Fluids - offers better performance and service, with improved resistance to heat, cold, oxidation, friction, and shearing. Synthetic fluids are very popular today and are available from aftermarket brands (which closely meet Dexron and Mercon specifications).
