Why transmission fluid is important
The transmission fluid is the lifeblood of your car’s whole system. It flows through the transmission components to lubricate and cool so that everything runs smoothly and without overheating. It’s normal for transmission fluid to degrade overtime. As the fluid ages, its ability to thoroughly lubricate and cool the system down will diminish.
Contamination of the transmission fluid will also cause a number of problems. To combat dirt and other particles found on the road, the transmission has a filter to block these from entering the system with the fluid. An easy way to protect your entire transmission system is to regularly clean the fluid.
Aside from quality, the fluid level is also an important consideration. Without the correct fluid pressure, the gears may not engage correctly and may cause the transmission to feel like it’s slipping when it shifts gears.
