Like every other aspect of a modern vehicle the Transmission has gone through many updates and iterations. The basic function of the Automatic Transmission has stayed the same but the route they take to get there has changed in multiple ways. The most common type of Automatic Transmissions are the CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission), DCT (Dual Clutch Transmission), Torque Converter (Traditional) Automatic, and the Automated-Manual (Auto-Manual, or Semi-Automatic) Transmission. One of the things these and other types of transmissions have in common is their use of Transmission Fluid. The viscosity, amount of fluid used, and their service intervals may differ but the job they perform is the same. The fluid in the Transmission acts not just as a lubricant for the various internal components but also as a coolant. This keeps your Transmission shifting correctly while maintaining an optimum operating temperature.
Over time the additives in the fluid will lose their effectiveness and it will be necessary to have the fluid replaced. By following a regular and consistent Transmission Services schedule we help to preserve the performance of the transmission and extend its service life in order to avoid unexpected and costly future repairs. This is because over time the Transmission fluid collects small metal shavings and contaminants which, in small amounts, is expected during normal operation. The heat generated in the Transmission will also degrade the fluid with time and use. When the fluid is not regularly serviced we begin to lubricate the Transmission with these metal shavings and contaminants which can and will shorten the service life of the Transmission.
