How do you refill fluids in Car Mechanic Simulator?

Service fluids in the Car Mechanic simulator include windshield washer, coolant, brake, and power steering. Like changing engine oil, you must first drain the car of existing fluids before refilling them with new ones.

However, unlike engine oil, you won’t have to raise the car on the lift and use the Oil Drain Tool to drain service fluids. Instead, you can use the Drain Tool found in the Pie Menu.

  1. Open your car’s hood.
