Does Your Vehicle Require a Transmission-Fluid Service?

A transmission fluid service is essentially the equivalent of an engine oil change, except it is performed on your transmission system. Transmission specifications and their procedures will vary by make and model, but often services will include a transmission fluid flush and a filter change. Old fluid is simply replaced with new fluid, and this service is performed at designated intervals as laid out by the vehicle manufacturer. Some transmissions do not have a serviceable filter so only a fluid exchange is necessary.

Some transmissions are considered maintenance-free. This means that fluid changes and filter replacements are not recommended at all for the life of the vehicle in question. Be sure to check your owners’ manuals to see what the recommendations are for your particular model regarding intervals for transmission fluid changes.

If you have any questions, concerns or general inquiries regarding the transmission fluid in your ride, please feel free to contact the certified service team here at Lewis Chrysler Dodge Jeep for quality services that you can rely on!
