Repairing or replacing a transmission can be an expensive repair. Maintaining your transmission to the manufacturer’s recommendations, not only prolongs its life, but it can prevent a costly repair or breakdown.
To maintain a safe and constant operating temperature, your vehicle uses transmission fluid to cool and lubricate the moving parts. The fluid reduces the amount of potentially damaging heat inside the transmission and helps increase the life of this important system.
Because some of the ingredients in the transmission fluid break down over time due to this heat the fluid should be replaced at specified intervals.
