When Should You Change Your Transmission Fluid & Why is it Important?
Transmission fluid is incredibly important for keeping your Toyota running because it’s what lubricates and cools the hundreds of moving parts of your transmission. Just like other fluids, it gets broken down from heat, use, and contaminants over time, so having it freshened up at the recommended intervals is key for sustaining your Toyota’s health and keeping you on the roads of East Stroudsburg.
Why is Changing Your Toyota’s Transmission Fluid Important?
Not only will it keep the moving parts of your transmission slippery and cool, it also helps to create the pressure and torque that powers your transmission. Upkeeping your transmission fluid helps your vehicle run more efficiently for longer, whereas dirty or burned transmission fluid could mean hard shifts, jumping gears, and overheating. This could all wreak havoc on the insides of your car, so make sure you keep an eye on the health of your transmission’s fluid.
