Automatic transmission fluid lubricates, cools and cleans internal components of the transmission. It maintains the hydraulic pressure necessary for the transmission to function correctly.
The additives in the transmission fluid are depleted over time and manufacturers recommend you change the transmission fluid and filter every 100,000 kilometres, or a little sooner if your vehicle tows heavy loads often.
Check the colour of the fluid – it should be clear. If it is dark brown or black, it is time for a change.
