The automatic transmission fluid and filter help lubricate, cool and clean internal components of the transmission. They also help maintain the hydraulic pressure necessary for the transmission to function properly. If your vehicle doesn’t engage smoothly and promptly when you put it in drive, it may be time to get an automatic transmission service by a highly trained technician. Replacing your transmission fluid and filter according to your vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations helps preserve the life of the transmission and helps maintain your vehicle warranty.
If changing the transmission filter and fluid is called for, technicians will remove the transmission pan, remove the old transmission filter and replace it with a new transmission filter.
