The Dirty Truth of Transmission Fluid

Perhaps you never thought about it, but your vehicle’s transmission fluid actually hides a dirty truth. It goes in fresh and clean, but it is subject to the wrath of time, mileage, and driving habits. Specifically, like any lubricant, transmission fluid cannot last forever. It breaks down over time, losing some of its protective value. It can no longer lubricate the moving parts or cool the unit as well as it once did. This is particularly true when the transmission and fluid are overheated, which can happen more easily if you tow heavy loads. What’s more, debris can get into the fluid over time. It occurs as tiny metal shaving sluff off the gears and other parts wear. The unclean fluid then circulates, potentially depositing trash or accelerating corrosion wherever it goes. That’s why it’s so important to have us change your automobile’s transmission fluid regularly. Many automakers have a schedule for this preventive maintenance service outlined in the owner’s manual. However, some do not. Besides that, the service interval may not be realistic. Your car may need a transmission fluid change sooner to maintain optimal function and maximize usable life. You don’t have to worry, however. We can help you develop a feasible schedule to keep your transportation protected.
