Transmission fluid is a slippery liquid that acts as a lubricant for all of the moving parts inside your transmission. The typical transmission repair service interval is every 60,000 to 100,000 miles. However, the transmission fluid level should be checked periodically between services. Letting your car run low on transmission fluid can cause the transmission to shift improperly—or not at all. It also can harm the internal parts of your transmission because they are not being properly lubricated. Unfortunately, you may not hear any noises or have other clues that your transmission is low on fluid until it's too late.

How often do you have to change transmission fluid in manual transmissions?

Most vehicle manufacturers recommend a transmission fluid change from every 30,000 to 60,000 miles. The problem is fluid contamination which occurs over time as the synchronizers, bearings, and gears in the transmission wear out. The resulting metal particles then float around in the lubricant. Oil that contains microscopic particles of metal does not lubricate as well as clean oil. So if these contaminants are not drained out, they will shorten the life of your transmission.

Neglecting routine transmission service may find you put a lot of cash on transmission repair. Wondering how often do you have to change transmission fluid?

Have you ever jumped in the car, prepared to start the day, turn the key in the ignition and nothing happens? This is a stressful situation. Because starting problems could have the same symptom, it is hard to determine whether the problem is with the starter, the battery, or the alternator. It may take a process of elimination, but your mechanic can pinpoint the starting problem.

While a bad starter can look like other problems with your car, there are ways to tell if the starter has gone bad and that it is the culprit of your problems.

How do you know if your starter is bad?

Ask your mechanic for advice on how do you know if you have a bad starter. If your vehicle is having starting problems, it could be the starter, battery, or alternator.

Most people are ready for some warmer weather. But don’t wait for the heat of summer before scheduling an auto A/C service. If you've ever lost your air conditioning on a hot summer day, then you know how miserable that can be. The best way to tell if your air conditioner has a problem is if it can't generate or maintain air temperatures that are 50 degrees Fahrenheit below the ambient outside air temperature.

It’s important to keep your A/C in tip-top shape as a repair can be expensive. Your mechanic will be glad to give you a few tips on how to maintain your car A/C system. With the introduction of computerized parts, today’s A/C system is more complex than in the days of “do-it-yourself” vehicle maintenance. It is important to take it to a certified auto A/C specialist who is trained to diagnose problems with special equipment to check the condenser, compressor and the cabin filters. Another test uses dyes to check for A/C leaks that are virtually invisible.
