Your automatic transmission requires maintenance to extend the life of the transmission and reduce premature wear and breakdown.
Like the oil in your vehicle, the transmission fluid in your transmission can become contaminated with dirt, dust and debris. As the transmission fluid ages, viscosity breaks down and contaminants build up, leaving your vehicle’s transmission vulnerable.
Heat and contaminated fluids cause havoc on a transmission. For this reason a complete Transmission Fluid Exchange service thoroughly cleans deposits from the entire transmission, including transmission cooler, valve body, and torque converter. It virtually removes all of the old fluid from the system, and reinstalls new premium valvoline synthetic fluid.
Most of us should have our automatic transmission serviced every 30,000 miles under normal conditions. In severe conditions which include hot climates, and dirty or dusty conditions -such as off-road use or the vehicle is used for towing- monitor your automatic transmission fluid carefully. It's best to consider an automatic transmission service every 15,000 miles or as needed.
