Regular transmission service can help extend the life your vehicle and help it run optimally. Automatic transmission fluid lubricates, cools and cleans internal transmission parts. Automatic transmission gears deliver power from the engine to the drive wheels. Over time, the fluid inside the automatic transmission degrades. Manufacturers often recommend replacement at intervals stated in years of service or miles of driving. The interval may be shorter for severe use. Replacing transmission fluid at the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended service intervals improves lubrication and helps to maximize the life of the transmission.
We can advise you about the manufacturer’s recommendations for your vehicle’s automatic transmission fluid replacement. We can also advise you about the manufacturer’s recommendations for replacing the internal filter that removes contaminants from the fluid and adjustment of the “bands” that manage the gear-changing function.
