Automatic Transmission Vehicles Still Need Fluid Changes

Automatic transmission vehicles need to be lubricated to keep their gears moving freely. While they don't bother the driver with the need to change gears like a stick shift might, these vehicles do still have gears hidden away from the driver that get changed constantly. Transmission fluid breaks down over time in much the same way that motor oil does.

Manufacturers generally recommend that drivers change their transmission fluid after a certain number of years. The problem is that these estimates are usually based on fairly conservative estimates. Cars driven under severe conditions will need to have transmission work done more frequently because transmission fluid breaks down much more rapidly under these conditions.

Keeping the lubricant fresh is especially important for anyone who uses their car or truck for work. If you need to have your transmission fluid changed in Clarksburg, then get in touch with the friendly mechanics at Chenoweth Ford Inc.
