Toyota Transmission Fluid Exchange Service

Toyota Transmission Fluid Exchange in  Lynchburg, VA

Your vehicle's transmission is designed to transfer power from the engine to the wheels. To keep your transmission running correctly, it requires transmission fluid. The fluid keeps the components of the transmission cool and adequately lubricated. It prevents friction from damaging the transmission. You must check your transmission fluid levels regularly to ensure it isn't low. This isn't all you should do. You should also have a transmission fluid exchange performed every 30,000 to 60,000 miles.

What Does Transmission Fluid Do?

As mentioned above, transmission fluid keeps the transmission cool and lubricated. There are also many ways that it can benefit your vehicle. These include:

  • Allows your engine to shift gears easily
  • Provides hydraulic pressure
  • Prevents corrosion, rust, and wear
  • Controls foam

What Is a Transmission Fluid Exchange?

Transmission fluid exchange is a mechanic service, where they flush out the old transmission fluid and replace it with fresh fluid. To clean all of the transmission debris, they force chemicals to clear it out entirely through the system. Once the transmission is clean and free of old transmission fluid, it would be filled with new, clean fluid.

What Happens If You Don't Have Your Fluid Exchanged?

If you don't have your transmission fluid exchanged regularly, it can cause issues with your transmission. Over time, the friction and heat inside the transmission cause the fluid to break down. When this happens, it won't work the way that it should. Old transmission fluid can also contain deposits that can affect the way that your vehicle drives. Over time, the constant heat and friction can cause irreparable damage to the transmission.
