When to Bring Your Car to Our Schaumburg Alfa Romeo Service Center for a Transmission Fluid Change
Most drivers know when to schedule the services their vehicle needs most often. Even inexperienced motorists have probably been told that they should get their oil changed every 3,000 – 5,000 miles or every three months, for example. A lot of drivers will also make arrangements to have their tires rotated at the same time they have their oil changed. Similarly, it’s common knowledge that having their battery tested at least once a year is a good idea, especially for drivers whose car battery is three years-old or older.
While it’s great that so many motorists know when to schedule frequent or semi-frequent services, some drivers stumble when it comes to the services their automobile doesn’t need as often. Transmission fluid changes are one service that motorists don’t always seem sure when to schedule.
In general, you should schedule a transmission fluid change every 30,000 – 60,000 miles if your vehicle has a manual transmission. If you use your automobile for heavy-duty things regularly, you’ll probably need to change your transmission fluid more often, such as every 15,000 miles.
Does your car have an automatic transmission? If it does, you may never have to bring your car in for a transmission fluid change. When a car’s automatic transmission does require fluid replacements, the service will typically have to be scheduled every 60,000 – 100,000 miles.
