Oil Change Yes, Transmission Change Yes

Most drivers in Reno and Sparks are good at remembering to get their oil changed. But a transmission needs service as well but is often overlooked because of the longer service intervals. If you don’t maintain a transmission, it can lead to premature failure. A transmission can be a costly repair if things begin to fail.

Transmission Fluid Can Break Down

Your transmission uses fluid formulated to keep things inside lubricated and running well. If you fail to change the fluid, it can break down or get dirty. The transmission transfers the power of the engine into the wheels. This load causes intense strain on the gears within. It’s easy to see why a transmission would fail without clean fluid.

When trying to understand how often to change your transmission fluid, consult the owners manual. Usually, there will be a schedule of when to make the change. Just like an oil change, intervals are typically 35,000 miles (55,000 km) or every two years. Always consult a professional at Wayne’s Automotive Center about your specific vehicle. Intervals can vary for different makes and models.
