A technician here at Upper James Toyota will replace your transmission fluid to ensure your transmission is properly cared for. Read on to learn more.
What Does Transmission Fluid do?
Transmission fluid is an incredibly important part of the transmission system, and needs to be in top health to deliver its benefits and full potential to work. It does its job by cooling and lubricating the components of the transmission system. The transmission system consists of many parts working together in direct concert, meaning they need to be properly maintained and lubricated for proper operation. Them doing so means that you’ll be able to avoid repairs and go longer without needed service.
How does Transmission Fluid Break Down?
Your transmission fluid, though, like any other fluid, part or component on your vehicle is susceptible to damage and breaking down. Transmission fluid is in an intense environment to begin with, being subjected to extreme temperatures, which work against its job of lubricating and cooling. Going too far past your recommended service interval for your transmission fluid may lead toward your transmission fluid not being able to work at its peak ability, and thus inviting the increased likelihood of a breakdown in the transmission system, and thus costly repair.
How Often Should You Get a Transmission Flush?
You should look to get your transmission flushed every 50,000 – 100,000 km if you drive an automatic transmission, while manual transmissions need a little bit more frequent attention from around 35,000 – 70,000 km. If you’re concerned, talk to one of our expert Upper James Toyota service technicians for specifics surrounding your model. When it is time for a transmission flush, we’ll replace that old fluid with new transmission fluid, a high-quality variant approved by our Toyota brand.
