When Should You Change Your Transmission Fluid?
It would be best if you changed your transmission fluid as per the instructions of the manufacturer. Your transmission will run more kilometres this way. However, changing the transmission fluid in irregular intervals can harm your vehicle’s health in the long term, as it causes fluid starvation and plugging.
How to Check
Checking transmission fluid is relatively simple- you need to take a sample of automatic transmission fluid from your dipstick to know whether it needs changing or not. Red or pink transmission fluid usually indicates fresh fluid. Dark red or black fluid indicates a need to be changed. On the other hand, you know that the transmission was overfilled when the fluid looks foamy and bubbly. If there are metal flecks in the fluid, it is an indication that the transmission is damaged and your vehicle needs service.
Some vehicles have lifetime transmission fluid. If this is the case with yours, you should check it when it hits 60,000 kilometres to ensure that the vent tubes are still functioning correctly by facilitating the equalization of pressure in your transmission. If it allows moisture and dust to enter the vent tubes, you may need to get your vehicle checked.
Effects of Delayed Maintenance
Suppose you do not service your automatic transmission for a long time, new transmission fluid will not work well and can cause transmission failure as the metal particles in the old oil will help internal clutches find grip and pouring in fresh oil will cause slipping. This holds true especially for the vehicles that have hit the 60,000 kilometres record without regular transmission fluid service. Therefore, you must change the fluid and filter regularly to avoid fluid starvation and resulting problems with transmission.
If it must be rebuilt, the dealer will remove your vehicle’s transmission and use factory-approved components. Others prefer brand new installations instead of a rebuild for specific models thanks to their flexibility.
