Transmission Fluid Exchange Service

Why is flushing and replacing your transmission fluid so important?

Transmission fluid exchange service is essential to the longevity of the transmission. If the service is not completed regularly (every 30,000 miles), the result could be the inability to even drive your car. The cost of a new transmission and the labor costs can reach thousands of dollars and a rebuilt transmission is just as costly. That is an expense that is not only avoidable but it's also a waste of your hard-earned money. Although it is preventive maintenance, the below signs could indicate that you need a transmission fluid exchange service:

  • Transmission won't engage
  • Transmission gears slip or are delayed
  • Leaking transmission fluid
  • The smell of burning fluid coming from the drivetrain

The Purpose of Your Transmission Fluid

The role of transmission fluid is to aid in shifting the gears (manual and automatic). It helps in decreasing the amount of friction within the transmission, lubricates the internal parts of the transmission, and it can even help to maintain fuel economy.

How Often Should You Check Your Transmission Fluid

Your transmission fluid should be checked once a month. It needs to be monitored regularly to ensure that the level is not only accurate but also to inspect the density of the fluid, the color of the fluid, and to look for any particles within the fluid, such as metal shavings or dirt. Most often, the cause of a low level of transmission fluid is due to a leak, which requires a technician to inspect and determine the root cause.

How complicated is a transmission fluid exchange service?

During the transmission fluid exchange service, our technician will inspect the transmission for any leaks and test drive your Subaru. Typically, the service takes less than two hours, which is a very short amount of time for such a potential high out-of-pocket expense of needing a transmission replacement.

We use Genuine OEM Parts and complete a complimentary multi-point inspection on each vehicle that is serviced.
