What Do I Need To Know About Transmission Fluid

Posted by Motorama in Servicing Tips

Automatic transmission fluid is one of the most important tools that can help you keep your car in the best possible shape, but many people don't know what it does or how to check it.

The good news is that the process is relatively straightforward - and with some help from a Brisbane car servicing expert, you'll be able to check on your automatic transmission fluid in no time.

What does transmission fluid actually do?

Transmission fluids are designed to get the most possible life out of your transmission, and can help contribute to your car's fuel efficiency and smooth gear shifting. If you notice that your car hesitates when automatically shifting gears, it may be time to check your transmission fluid and top it up.

How do I check the transmission fluid?

You can easily check your transmission fluid at home by looking for your transmission dipstick under your hood. It's best to check your transmission fluid while your vehicle's engine is running - make sure your parking brake is on before you do this.

If it is time to top up your transmission fluid, you will need to consult your owner's manual to find out what type your vehicle requires. Fluids can vary widely depending on the make and model of the car, as well as its age.
