How do I know if I need my transmission fluid replaced?
Conscientious vehicle owners know to check the engine oil level regularly to stay ahead of any problems. However, it’s easy to forget that you can also easily check the health of the vehicle’s transmission fluid. A vehicle that is well-maintained and doesn’t do heavy-duty towing, may not ever needs a transmission fluid flush. However, older vehicles may burn through transmission fluid or the system could develop a leak. Any leaks need to be addressed immediately. Also, healthy transmission fluid will be bright in color and fluid that needs to be flushed will be dark.
When should I flush my transmission fluid?
Every vehicle will have its own maintenance plan laid out by each individual automaker. However, the consensus is that vehicles with a manual transmission should be examined for a potential transmission flush every 30,000 to 60,000 miles. The recommendations for automatic transmissions start at 30,000 miles but, it’s entirely possible that these vehicles will never need a fluid flush.
