How Often Should I Change My Transmission Fluid?

Manufacterers recommend you change your transmission fluid every 30,000-60,000 miles depending on how heavily you use your vehicle. If you don't change your transmission fluid as often as recommended you will be lubricating your vehicle with metal shavings and other contaminants. This will ultimately shorten the life of your transmission. It is important to regularly check the transmission levels between service intervals. Letting your car run low on transmission fluid can cause the transmission to shift improperly, or not at all.

If it has been a while since your car's transmission level has been checked, we recommend that a qualified technician checks it before changing it. Over time the fluid breaks down and forms a type of shellac on the interior of the transmission. If you take the old fluid out and put clean fluid in, the clean fluid is going to act as a detergent and clean the shellac off. Possibly causing major damage or loss of the transmission. That's why we recommend changing your transmission fluid before it gets dirty, to prevent this from happening. We want your transmission to rn for years and years.
