Understanding the Basics of Automatic and Manual Transmission Service

Automatic transmission fluid is very different that manual transmission fluid. In addition, depending on the make, model and year – the transmission fluid used will be specific to performance needs and vehicle use.

When it comes to manual transmission fluid, synchronizer compatibility, durability and shift quality matters.

Manual transmission fluid involves performance based results, including:

  • Heat resistance
  • Pressure carrying performance
  • Fluid viscosity for anti-wear durability

There is a lot more that goes into the mechanics and ‘why’s” of transmission fluid, but generally it’s basic maintenance with the proper fluids, as well as immediate attention to concerns – that will keep your vehicle humming along as it should.

Transmission Service in Aldergrove

We discuss on our transmission service page how…

…a proper transmission service involves removing the tranny fluid pan and exposing the internal components.  An inexperienced service provider can easily cause damage with this procedure.  You could get a transmission fluid change done at a quick lube shop or general repair shop where they don’t remove the pan to access the inside of the transmission and replace the filter, but what’s it really worth?  When you change your engine oil you wouldn’t think of doing so without changing your oil filter at the same time because the new oil will just get contaminated with the dregs left in the filter.  A transmission could be flushed to try cleaning the internal filter, which partially removes contaminants, but a filter works by trapping particles so if it works as designed, some particles will remain in the filter, thus reducing fluid flow, and leaving the possibility of particles jarring loose to cause further damage in the future.

Proper maintenance costs a little more than a simple fluid change or flush but it’s far less expensive in the long run.
