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.

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

A fluid change for automatic transmissions can vary from every 30,000 miles to possibly never. In an automatic transmission, transmission fluid also serves as a coolant and a viscous fluid that transmits power from the engine to the transmission. Because more heat is generated in an automatic transmission, the fluid actually degrades and breaks down over time, as it becomes contaminated with worn bits of the transmission.

A Word to the Wise: Changing transmission fluid at the service interval recommended by either your mechanic or as stated in your owner’s manual will maintain the investment you have made in your vehicle and keep it running strong for many more miles.
