What Is a Transmission Fluid Exchange?

As the name suggests, a transmission fluid exchange involves taking the old fluid out and putting new fluid in. There is also a thing called a "flush," which goes further and gets all of the liquid out of the lines, pan and torque converter.  Just like engine oil, or any fluid, transmission fluid will break down over time and not provide the lubrication it did when it was new. The fluid will also eventually have tiny specs of metal in it, that will prevent it from working as well as it could. Changing the fluid helps your transmission work better, and helps keep it shifting smoothly as you drive. As it helps the transmission work more efficiently, it also prevents problems from developing.

When Do You Need This Service Done?

Your owner's manual will give you guidance on when your transmission fluid should be changed. Cars are different, so that time may be different for various kinds of automobiles. If you hear a grinding sound coming from the area of your transmission, or if you feel it slipping as it changes gears, you should have that checked out immediately. It is not that hard to check the fluid yourself. If it is low, you should bring it in immediately.

When you check the fluid, it should be bright red and fairly transparent. if it is anything other than that, you need to have the fluid changed. Driving a car with low transmission fluid is asking for trouble. It will cause further damage to your transmission and you will likely need more expensive repairs. If the inner parts are not lubricated properly they will be damaged.
