The transmission fluid cools and lubricates the gears of the car.


After a time, the transmission fluid can break down and it will lose its ability to lubricate. Check your vehicle’s manufacturer recommendations to see what it says about transmission fluid. It serves the important function of keeping the torque converter and transmission gears in proper working order. Over time, this can help to prevent breakdowns or costly repairs. It also extends the life of your car’s transmission.

When to Schedule Transmission Fluid Exchange Service

It’s recommended to check the transmission fluid at every oil change. If you drive in extreme conditions, it might be necessary to change it more often. The car will give you a few signs that the transmission fluid needs to be changed. One of the main signs is that it might be having problems when you are shifting it. These can be sounds, such as grinding or squealing while you are shifting. It also might be difficult to shift gears. Another indication is that it is slipping gears. Your transmission fluid might need to be replaced if there is a delay in movement after you shift the car. It’s important to have your transmission fluid in good condition. If you don’t upkeep it, then it could cause your car’s transmission system to stall or to stop working.
