Servicing an Automatic Transmission

The Fluid change in an automatic transmission in your vehicle promotes proper operation and helps your automatic transmission last longer without failure. All vehicle manufacturers have different service intervals for their particular transmission. In a typical automatic transmission service, the fluid is completely flushed, a filter is changed, the transmission pan is cleaned and a new pan gasket installed. When refilling, use manufacturer specified fluids.

Regularly check your parking space for leaks. Doesn’t matter, is it the engine oil leak, power steering fluid or transmission fluid; if you discover any, get it fixed before it caused something serious. Change the fluid as often as it said in your owner’s manual or when it becomes too dark (rather brown than red) or dirty.
