The Importance of Changing Your Transmission Fluid

Changing your transmission fluid is just as important as having a routine oil change. Your vehicle’s transmission needs to stay lubricated to protect its moving parts in order to spin, disengage, and engage correctly. This is everything from the bearings, bearing shafts, gears, and synchronizers. Read through your owner’s manual to see what your transmission fluid needs to get changed. Neglecting these services can cause serious and permanent damage. If you’re unsure when your vehicle should receive your service, contact our service department at 708-799-2000 for more information.

Automatic transmission – Manual shifting isn’t required with automatic transmissions. Your clutches and plates work with a pump in order to create the pressure allows you to change gears. They need a certain amount of automatic transmission fluid in these cases. Some transmission fluids will even create friction so your clutches are able to engage.

Manual transmission – Depending on the year and model of your vehicle, some gearboxes require certain oil in order to lubricate and protect the gears, shafts, bearings, and synchronizers in your vehicle. There are even manual transmissions that will use a transmission fluid that is similar to what they use for their oil change.
