Most drivers are good about changing the oil inside their engines, but
unfortunately the same can’t be said when it comes to changing the
fluid inside the transmission. That’s a shame, really, considering
that changing this fluid is one of the easiest ways to prolong the life
of your car’s transmission and avoid major problems that can require
costly transmission repairs. Do you really need to change your transmission
fluid? The short answer is yes. Below we’ll explain some of the
dangers of neglecting to change the fluid and how often you should have
this service performed at your local
transmission repair shop in San Jose.
How Often to Change Fluid
How often this service should be performed varies from carmaker to carmaker,
so a good place to start is your vehicle’s owner’s manual.
However, keep in mind that the interval between transmission fluid changes
is also dependent on other factors such as the kind if driving you do,
where you drive, and the overall condition of your vehicle. A transmission
mechanic can inspect your vehicle and recommend a fluid change interval
specific to your car’s needs.
What if You Don’t
The fluid inside your transmission serves a few very important functions.
First, it helps facilitate gear shifts. Transmission fluid also cools
the transmission and lubricated the moving parts. If you fail to change
the fluid, over time it will deteriorate and lose its ability to protect
the transmission. Not only will this place additional wear and tear on
the transmission, which can require you to seek out transmission repair
or replacement sooner than you might otherwise, but it can make for very
poor driving performance thanks to rough gear shifts.
Where to Go for a Fluid Change
Changing transmission fluid isn’t like changing motor oil. The transmission
needs to be completely flushed and drained of fluid prior to adding new
fluid, and this requires special equipment that is usually only found
at transmission maintenance and repair shops.
