How do you know when it's time to change your automatic transmission fluid?

Check your owner's manual or ask your Quality Car Care Service Adviser for recommended intervals. Your driving habits can influence the mileage between changes (see severe vs. normal driving).

At Quality Car Care our qualified mechanics test your transmission fluid free of charge anytime you are in for service.

What does an automatic transmission service include?

We use a pressure system to force out the old transmission fluid and replace it with new fluid or we drain the fluid through the transmission drain plug and refill it to the correct level.

What if your car has a manual transmission?

Our qualified mechanics test your fluid with a chemically treated pad to determine if it needs to be replaced and replace it as needed.

What about the transmission filter?

Depending on the condition of your fluid and your mileage the filter may also need to be changed. This service involves removing the transmission pan and replacing the gaskets as well as replacing the fluid. Your Quality Car Care service adviser can tell you if you need a new filter.


Transmission fluid wears out over time. Because it lubricates one of the most important parts of your car changing it regularly will help your transmission last longer with fewer repairs.
