What is Transmission Fluid Changer
A transmission fluid exchanger is when the old fluid is replaced with new fluid, its flow direction is automatically controlled, and has an equal amount exchange system. A transmission flush involves forcing chemicals through the system to clear out debris. Transmission fluid exchange is preventative maintenance whereas a transmission fluid flush is closer to a repair that's correcting a problem.
Avoid Damaging Your Transmission
Changing your transmission fluid frequently is the best way to ensure maximum longevity of your transmission. If you don’t change your transmission fluid frequently, the dirty fluid will not serve as an effective lubricant and it won’t disperse heat well. This will cause wear and tear on the clutches anad other parts of your transmission. Once the clutch packs lose their grip, the old fluid might be the only thing creating enough friction to get your clutches to engage and keep your transmission from slipping. Prevent damage to your transmission by making sure your transmission fluid is changed or flushed timely.
What Does Transmission Fluid Do?
As you can imagine, transmission fluid serves as a lubricator for your transmission. By providing the transmission with a slippery substance, you’re able to let your transmission’s parts move and work freely. With this, the transmission is able to run without major issues. That’s not all the fluid does, however, Transmission fluid also works as a coolant that provides the right temperature for your engine to work with your transmission effectively.
Automatic transmissions generate more heat than a manual transmission. For that reason, proper fluids are essential to keeping the car running smoothly. Likewise, both manual transmissions can give off little particles of the machinery that float inside the transmission fluid. This makes regular fluid changes for the transmission all the more important to your car’s health.
How often should automatic transmission fluid be changed?
There are a few different numbers thrown out when asking this question. Most manufacturers recommend replacing transmission fluid every 30,000 to 60,000 km. or 24 months. If you tow, or do mostly city driving with constant changes of gears, it may be wise to change the ATF even more often. The automatic transmission fluid (ATF) should be changed sooner if its dipstick reveals dark or burnt-smelling fluid. The good fluid color is like Radish pink.
