Much like engine oil, transmission fluid acts as a lubricant. But beyond its lubrication abilities, transmission fluid also plays a vital role in preventing overheating and keeping your transmission clean with additional additives. Without the ideal quality or volume of transmission fluid, you are putting your transmission at risk of both poor performance and damage.
A transmission fluid exchange will drain out your existing fluid and replace it with new fluid. As transmission fluid gets older, it collects debris and begins to oxify. Old, contaminated transmission fluid is not able to provide the qualities that your transmission needs to operate. Keeping up with regular transmission fluid exchanges will help you prevent transmission issues or failures from occurring down the road.
We encourage drivers to check their owner’s manual or to consult with one of our experts to find out when their vehicle recommends a transmission fluid exchange. For some vehicles, it is as frequent as every 30,000 miles, while other vehicles advise service at much larger mileage intervals. No matter what your vehicle recommends, it is important to monitor your transmission for any signs of trouble, such as difficulty staying in or getting up to gear, or unusual noises while shifting. Ford and Lincoln owners can find certified service technicians and genuine OEM transmission fluid at LaFontaine Ford of Flushing.
