Transmission Fluid Service

What Does Transmission Fluid Do?

The transmission changes gears as your car changes speed. The purpose is to maximize performance while achieving low fuel consumption. The transmission fluid helps the transmission to shift smoothly and protects it from grinding and wear.

Why Should You Change the Transmission Fluid?

Degradation and contamination of transmission fluid can lead to buildup of deposits and debris resulting in overheating, delayed/rough shifting, and transmission failure. Benefits of changing your transmission fluid can include:

  • Keeps your car shifting smoothly by reducing wear on transmission gears and other parts
  • Minimizes the risk of transmission failure and expensive repairs
  • Provides additional protection by using advanced detergents that help to reduce deposits
  • Provides advanced conditioners to rejuvenate seals

How Often Should You Change Your Transmission Fluid?

Many auto manufacturers recommend replacing your transmission fluid at regularly scheduled intervals. Check your owner’s manual for details. Or stop in for a consultation.
