What is a Transmission Service?
A transmission service is a regular part of routine car maintenance, just like an oil change. The primary aspect of a transmission service is flushing out the old transmission fluid and replacing it with new fluid. However, a complete transmission service should also include: examining the sump pump or pan (if possible), replacing or cleaning the filter, cleaning the pan and installing it with a new pan gasket.
What is Transmission Fluid?
Transmission fluid is the fluid that lubricates the moving parts inside your car’s transmission. In an automatic transmission vehicle, this fluid also serves several other purposes including as a coolant.
What Type of Transmission Fluid Do I Need?
Different fluids are used for different types of transmissions. Automatic transmissions use Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF). Manual transmissions can use a variety of fluids including motor oil, hypoid gear oil and in some cases automatic transmission fluid. You should always consult your owners manual for which transmission fluid is right for your car.
