Learn you should change your car's transmission fluid at Robbins Nissan.
When Should I Change The Fluid In My Transmission? The fluid in the transmission is essential in keeping a transmission from overheating, and it should be regularly maintained. Does the type of transmission in my vehicle matter? Regardless if your car has a CVT, auto, manual, or even a used transmission, the transmission fluid keeps the transmission lubricated so that it may run smoothly. Every brand has its own specific intervals for servicing the transmission fluid, but if you notice any fluctuations in the way the transmission feels, then changing or flushing the fluid might help fix the issue
Regrettably, there isn't a perfect answer for how many years yourtransmission fluid will last. If you have a weekend cruiser that lives in a climate-controlled environment but rarely gets driven, you may be able to go several years without needing to change the fluid. If you own a heavy-duty pickup that gets worked hard, then you might consider flushing the transmission fluid more often. If you have doubt about how often to change your transmission fluid, then it is probably worth getting your car examined. Our trusted mechanics will diagnose the problem and suggest the correct service and get you back on the road as soon as possible.
It does not matter what kind of vehicle you own, eventually, your transmission fluid will lose effectiveness and stop lubricating your transmission correctly. So, which is the right choice? Transmission Fluid Change - This easy procedure involves letting the used transmission fluid drain from the transmission pan under your car. While it cannot remove all of the fluid, the price of a transmission fluid change is less than a transmission flush in nearly all circumstances. Flushing The Old Fluid - This process includes specialized machinery that will suction out the used fluid from the system. A transmission fluid flush may cost more but is a more thorough way of replacing used fluid. Each situation and car is unique, let our skilled technicians look at your vehicle, and they'll give you an estimate of the unique services your car may need.
If you got your vehicle brand-new, then you will know the complete maintenance history and if the vehicle is up-to-date on its regular maintenance. However, if you bought a pre-owned car, you might not have the complete maintenance records to know when the transmission was last flushed. Other than a check engine light, if you notice transmission whine, delayed shifts, poor acceleration, or slipping gears, then you should consider having the transmission fluid changed.
