What's Underneath My Bonnet? | North West England & Midlands

What is actually underneath your bonnet?​

When looking after your car, it’s important to know just what’s going on underneath your bonnet.

Engine oil and coolant can be a bit of a mystery, but when your car starts to show signs of needing top ups, it’s actually much easier than you think to look after your motor.

In this short video we’ll run through the 4 main fluids under your bonnet that you can easily keep your eye on: screen wash, engine oil, engine coolant and brake fluid. We’ll let you know just how you can easily recognise each tank by the icons on the caps and where they should generally be located.

Any fluids you need for your car can be purchased at your local Swansway Dealership. If you’re unsure exactly what you need or would like us to check the fluid levels for you, our Service teams are on hand to assist.

As a family owned and run business with over fifty years’ experience in the motor industry, we know just how important it is to maintain your vehicle’s safety and keep you on the move.

If you spot anything in our video that you'd like further advice on, or if you have any queries at all, let us know.
