In all types of transmissions, the transmission fluid is an important lubricant. It reduces friction, preventing all the moving metal components in the transmission from damaging each other. In automatic transmissions, the transmission fluid plays an additional role. Since automatic transmissions produce much more heat than manual transmissions, automatic transmission fluid is also a coolant. Over time, transmission fluid will become less effective as it becomes contaminated or worn.
For both automatic transmission fluid and manual transmission fluid, the service interval depends on a number of factors. This includes the type of fluid used. Because of this, you should always follow your vehicle’s maintenance schedule included in the owner’s manual.
Some places advertise transmission fluid flushes; however, this isn’t always the best. A transmission fluid flush includes a high-pressure cleaning out of your transmission fluid rather than simply letting it drain out. While this does get a bit more fluid, it can also cause troubles in the transmission. This is why we offer a transmission fluid exchange service at LaFontaine Buick GMC of Dearborn near Hamtramck, Michigan.
