Team Gillman Subaru North welcomes you to discover the symptoms of low transmission fluid.
When Should You Change The Fluid In Your Transmission? The fluid in the transmission helps keep your transmission from overheating, and it should be serviced regularly. Does the type of transmission in my vehicle make a difference? Whether you have a manual, CVT, automatic, or even a used transmission, the fluid keeps the transmission lubricated so it can work as intended. Every car manufacturer has its own schedule for changing the transmission fluid, but if you notice any variations in the way your transmission operates, then flushing the fluid may help fix the issue
Regrettably, there is no one-size-fits-all answer for how long yourtransmission fluid will last. If you have a weekend cruiser that sits in an air-conditioned environment, you might be able to go years without having to flush the transmission fluid. If you own a heavy-duty pickup truck that gets used a lot, then you may want to consider changing your fluid more often. If you have concerns about when you should to flush your fluid, then it's probably worth getting it. Our trusted mechanics will figure out the issue and suggest the correct service and get you back on the road, quickly.
If you got your car brand-new, then you will know the complete service history and if the vehicle is up-to-date on its scheduled maintenance.
