Automatic Transmission Fluid

 

Inspection/Replacement interval:

Refer to the Vehicle Owner’s Manual for specific inspection and replacement intervals.

 

1. If I ignore it?

  • Potential for increased transmission wear
  • Increased sludge and varnish buildup may cause sticking of valve body components
  • Potential to overheat the transmission through a lack of transmission fluid, if there is a leak
  • Low fluid level can cause improper shifting, overheating and transaxle damage

 

2. If I take care of it?

  • Increased longevity of the transmission components
  • Less sludge and varnish buildup
