When Is It A Good Time To Change Your Automatic Transmission Fluid?

At some point in time all of the fluids in your car are going to need to be changed. Today we’re talking about your automatic transmission fluid. Believe it or not, there is a right time and a wrong time to change your automatic transmission fluid. As a rule of thumb, every 20,000 to 30,000 miles is when you want to change your transmission fluid. Transmission fluid is a little bit different than engine oil because it has to not only lubricate, it also has to disperse heat. Check out the video below for a very good lesson on when the right time to change your automatic transmission fluid. Here’s a point of note, if the fluid is dark, then that is a pretty good indication that it might be time for a change.

Changing your automatic transmission fluid isn’t a job for the novice. We highly suggest that you bring it to your qualified Atlanta mechanics at the Southtowne General Motors Superstore. An improper fluid change can damage your transmission, especially if you wait too long to do it. Plus, there is a chance of contamination, so it’s better to be safe than sorry and have a pro look at it.
