What is the Transmission Fluid Exchange Service, and Why Does Your Vehicle Need it?
The role of the transmission system is to transfer power from the engine to the wheels. The transmission fluid plays a crucial role in the transmission system. It provides lubrication to the transmission components allowing them to work efficiently. It also protects the transmission components from wear and tear or overheating due to friction. Over time, this transmission fluid loses its effectiveness due to contamination and internal breakdown, requiring it to be replaced through a transmission fluid replacement service. At Volkswagen of Kingston, we carry the most reliable and high-quality transmission fluid.
When Do You Need a Transmission Fluid Exchange Service?
Most vehicle manufacturers provide a recommended service interval for transmission fluid; however, we suggest you have a periodic inspection of the transmission system to determine if there needs to be any change to the recommended service interval. Some common signs of ineffective transmission fluid include difficulty in engaging gears, slipping of gears, grinding or whining noise, and sudden surge or acceleration of the vehicle. The color of the transmission fluid can also be an indicator of the health of the fluid, as a dark brown color is an indicator of ineffective transmission fluid. Keep in mind that there could be a leakage in the transmission system. A low level of transmission fluid can also lead to transmission issues.
