When To Service Your Transmission
At Electric Laboratories we start with the manufacturer’s suggested interval, the most common being every 30,000 miles. We recommend an automatic Transmission Fluid Exchange Service with a filter being replaced every other time. Why a fluid exchange? Most automatic transmissions hold a minimum of 12 quarts of fluid. When the pan is removed and the filter changed you only get 3 to 5 quarts of fluid out, leaving 2 thirds to 3 quarters old fluid in the torque converter, lines, filter and hoses. When we perform a Transmission Fluid Exchange Service we get all the old fluid out and replace it with new. It just makes sense. By performing a fluid exchange at regular intervals the filter can be replaced every other time.
The transmission fluid will also tell you if service is needed before the manufactures suggested interval. If the transmission fluid is starting to turn brown it is an indicator that a service should be performed.
What’s The Purpose Of Transmission Fluid?
The purpose of automatic transmission fluid is to lubricate, clean, cool and provide the hydraulic pressure necessary to ensure smooth operation of the vehicle’s transmission. An automatic transmission creates a great deal of internal heat from friction. Under normal driving conditions, a transmission operates at 175 degrees which is the normal range most fluids are designed to operate. If the fluid temperature goes much higher, the life of the fluid begins to plummet.
