Transmission Fluid Exchange in Wayne County

When it comes to changing the fluid in your transmission, it is a good idea to check your owners manual. Especially with newer cars, there is a wide variety in the recommended time between changes, ranging from 30,000 to 150,000 miles or even never. Some experts feel changing it too much can actually damage a transmission. Certified technicians at LaFontaine Toyota in Dearborn (Wayne County) can help you get the right transmission fluid for your car, and help you decide when it needs to be changed. We are close to Detroit, Taylor, and Westland, MI, and we service all kinds of cars.


Why Your Transmission Fluid Needs to be Replaced

Transmission fluid is similar to engine oil in that it lubricates and breaks down over time. It is different in that he helps with the shifting of gears and serves as a coolant for your transmission. Automatic transmissions are tough in some ways, but they can also be easily damaged. The type of driving style you have has an impact. Hauling heavy things, or towing, or even a lot of stop and go city driving can wear out the fluid faster than driving long distances in rural areas.

When to Exchange Your Transmission Fluid

There is some debate over when fluid should be changed. If you hear grinding noises, or if gears are not shifting smoothly or are slow to engage, weak fluid is a likely suspect. If you have those problems it is important to get it serviced because you could ruin the transmission itself. Neglect can cause a much larger repair than changing the fluid would have cost. Transmissions go out gradually in most cases, and putting it off increases your chances of getting stranded because they will eventually stop working altogether.
