Why You Shouldn’t Skip a Transmission Fluid Exchange

Keeping up with your car’s maintenance schedule might feel like a chore, but trust us, the effort pays off—especially when it comes to the health of your transmission. Often flying under the radar, transmission fluid exchanges are pivotal to your vehicle’s performance and longevity. 

A Little Thing That Means a Lot

Your car’s transmission fluid lubricates and cools the transmission, keeping everything running smoothly and preventing the internal parts from grinding themselves into oblivion. However, like any fluid in your car, it doesn’t last forever. Over time, it breaks down and picks up contaminants. This is where things start to go south, affecting your vehicle’s performance and, potentially, leading to serious damage. 

The Benefits of Keeping It Fresh

Smoother shifting, better acceleration, and an overall more enjoyable driving experience. That’s what fresh transmission fluid can do. Plus, it extends the life of your transmission—a component that’s notoriously expensive to repair or replace. 

During a transmission fluid exchange, technicians also have the chance to inspect your transmission for any early signs of trouble. Catching issues early can save you a ton of money and headaches down the line. 

When Should You Get It Done?

The golden rule is every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but this can vary based on your vehicle’s make and model. Ignoring this maintenance task might save you a bit of time and money now, but it can lead to costly repairs—or worse, complete transmission failure down the road.
