Transmissions are what make your car “go,” and if you don’t pay attention to what’s under your car’s hood, there are some things that you may need to think about. Your car’s transmission fluid matters is one of them, and if you’re not paying attention to it, you need to have it checked. But first, what is transmission fluid?
Transmission fluid is the liquid that acts as a lubricant for every single moving part inside your engine’s transmission. Without it, the transmission will lock up and your car won’t be able to run. So, when should you get a service?
If you’re worried about your car’s well-being, you must first understand that your car does need transmission fluid changes. Manufacturers recommend that transmission fluid should be changed on a manual every 30,000 to 60,000 miles. However, if your car is heavily used, they suggest to have the transmission fluid changed every 15,000 miles. For automatic transmissions, intervals where you should be getting your transmission fluid changed range from 60,000 to 100,000 miles. It’s important to point out that it won’t do any harm on your transmission if you decide to get the fluid changed more frequently.
