How to Know When to Do a Transmission Fluid Replacement

Knowing when to do a transmission fluid change depends on several factors, including:

  • The type of transmission you have
  • The make and model of your vehicle
  • How frequently you drive
  • Whether you’re towing heavy loads

All of these factors can play a role in the lifespan of your transmission fluid. Generally, it’s best to do a transmission fluid replacement every 30,000-40,000 miles or every two years, based on regular, everyday driving. It’s best to consult your vehicle’s manual for recommendations or to bring your vehicle to a transmission specialist like the ones we have here at DOT Transmission to have it assessed.

What Is the Difference Between a Transmission Fluid Replacement and a Transmission Flush

Many car owners use transmission fluid flushes and transmission fluid replacements interchangeably when, in fact, they are two completely different services. The process of “flushing” your transmission is when a machine is hooked up to your vehicle, and it forces the old fluid out and new fluid in. The benefit of transmission flushes is that it flushes the whole system, including fluid in the torque converter and transmission cooler.

With a transmission fluid replacement, the filters and transmission pan are also addressed and cleaned. Most times, a transmission flush is completed without dropping the pan; this is done simply to be more cost-effective. To truly benefit from a transmission fluid replacement, there are three key components:

  • Dropping the transmission pan to thoroughly clean it and remove debris
  • Changing the existing filter to a new one
  • Completely flushing out the old fluid and replacing it

Frequently asked questions:

The rule of thumb is every 50,000km; however, each vehicle has specific guidelines from the manufacturer, and there are other factors that might require shorter intervals.

Yes! It’s absolutely necessary to change your automatic transmission fluid at the recommended intervals. When the transmission fluid is not regularly flushed and changed, it can lead to sludge buildup and excess friction, which can damage other components and eventually cause the vehicle to break down prematurely.

Telltale signs include grinding or strange noises, difficulty shifting gears, slipping gears, the vehicle surging, and a delay in vehicle movement.

A transmission fluid leak is typically red, but if it’s time for the fluid to be changed, it can be more of a brown colour. Much like engine oil, transmission fluid is a slick liquid that’s oily to the touch. Transmission fluids leak close to the front and middle of the vehicle. If you notice a puddle on the ground where you parked your car and the car is slow to start, you may have a transmission fluid leak.
