You should first understand the two main purposes of what transmission fluid is and what it does. First, it lubricates all the surfaces and components of the transmission system to help prevent excessive friction and overheating. Secondly, it transmits power from the engine to the transmission.

Theoretically, transmission fluid never needs to be changed. However, some mechanics do not agree with this concept. Some manufacturers recommend changing the transmission fluid at about 100,000 miles. Some mechanics say that it should be changed at least every 50,000 miles. Read your owner’s manual and discuss your concerns with your mechanic.

However, it is a fact that transmission fluid does deteriorate over time. There are certain driving conditions, such as frequent stop-and-go city driving, hauling heavy loads, or trailer towing, raise the transmission’s operating temperature and put more strain on the transmission and the fluid. Also, if the transmission is wearing out, a leak could be developing.

Transmission fluid can come in various colors, but it is most often red in color. It will become darker as it deteriorates. You may also start to notice a burned odor. This could be an indication that the fluid needs to be changed or that the transmission is developing problems.

How do you know if you need transmission fluid replaced? Here are four common problems that could develop:

  1. Delayed shifting.
  2. Difficulty and/or noisy shifting.
  3. Slipping in and out of gear.
  4. Overheating and burning smell.

It is a good idea to have your transmission fluid checked about once a month. If there are any of the signs listed above, especially if you have already topped off the transmission fluid, you may be facing a costly transmission repair.
