Have you had your Transmission Fluid looked at lately? When was the last time you had it changed? The Manufacturers recommend for a manual transmission fluid changed every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but under heavy-duty use about every 15,000 miles. Automatic transmission vary from 30,000 to never or 60,000 to 100,000, depending on your driving.
The transmission fluid is a slippery liquid that is a lubricant for all of the moving parts inside your transmission.
For a Manual transmission the problem is fluid contamination, which occurs when bearings and gears in the transmission wear out, leaving particles that float around in the lubricant.
With an Automatic transmission more heat is generated and the fluid actually degrades and breaks down with use, also as parts wear down it also becomes contaminated.
WHAT IF I DON’T CHANGE IT REGULARLY?
By not changing your transmission fluid regularly, you are letting the transmission lubricate itself with metal shavings and other contaminants. You will shorten the life of your transmission. CHANGING YOUR TRANSMISSION FLUID AT THE CORRECT INTERVALS IS A GOOD INVESTMENT.
