Every transmission, whether it is manual or automatic, uses transmission fluid. This fluid is both a hydraulic fluid that powers the transmission and a lubricant that helps various components of the transmission work smoothly and lasts as long as possible. Transmission fluid, like other kinds of fluid, deteriorates over time and must be replaced. The old fluid is drained and the new fluid is poured in. This service is a little more complicated than it sounds, so it is best to let a professional mechanic handle it.
As important as it is to replace brake fluid and engine oil, replacing transmission fluid may be even more important. New transmission fluid works much better than old transmission fluid in terms of providing hydraulic power and lubrication. This will make shifting smoother, which can improve power delivery, fuel efficiency, and comfort.
Putting transmission fluid service off is not a good idea at all. As soon as you go past the maintenance schedule from the manufacturer, the deterioration of the transmission fluid will put undue wear and tear on your vehicle’s transmission. This can lead to components breaking or wearing out early if you wait much too long to get your vehicle’s transmission fluid exchanged. You may even have a breakdown in the middle of driving somewhere and find yourself stranded on the side of the road. It’s easy to simply get your transmission fluid service on time, which will prevent all of this from happening.
