If you’re wondering when should you change transmission fluid in your vehicle, you may need to know just what is the purpose of transmission fluid. First, it lubricates all the surfaces and components of the transmission system to prevent the friction that causes overheating, and secondly, it transmits power from the engine to the transmission.

A topic of controversy among mechanics is when should you change transmission fluid? Some say that transmission fluid should never need to be changed. But some vehicle manufacturers recommend replacing transmission fluid about every 100,000 miles, while some say about every 50,000 miles. Find your owner’s manual to see what it has to say, and then discuss the topic with a trusted mechanic.

In spite of the facts above, it is a fact that transmission fluid deteriorates over time. Particular driving conditions raise the transmission’s operating temperature and put more strain on the transmission and the fluid, such as frequent stop-and-go city driving, hauling heavy loads, or towing. If your vehicle has a lot of miles, it could be that the transmission could be developing a leak.

So when should you change transmission fluid? If the fluid has turned darker than normal (most often it is red in color) it may be time for a transmission flush. Or, if you start to notice a burned odor, it could an indication that the transmission is developing problems, such as

  1. Delayed shifting.
  2. Difficulty and/or noisy shifting.
  3. Slipping in and out of gear.
  4. Overheating and burning smell.

If you have the transmission fluid checked about every month, you can keep tabs on its condition, and prevent a costly transmission repair down the road.
