Transmission Fluid Exchange Service
Certified Nissan Transmission Fluid Exchange Service in Newark, DE
Transmission fluid is the hydraulic fluid that flows through the transmission and lubricates and protects it from corrosion. This fluid is vital to the transmission's function, so it needs to be as fresh and ready to work as it can be. Unfortunately, as transmission fluid ages, it can break down and get contaminated, which is why we provide Nissan transmission fluid exchange services just for you at Porter Nissan. We'll make sure your transmission is operating with fresh transmission fluid.
What Does Transmission Fluid Do
Transmission fluid acts as a hydraulic fluid for the transmission, allowing it to take the torque from the engine and distribute it to provide acceleration at multiple speeds. On top of this fluid's main function, it's also a lubricant and coolant that keeps the gears running cool and smooth. Lastly, it protects the inside of the transmission from corrosion damage, which can ruin a transmission fairly quickly if left unchecked. The transmission fluid is the lifeblood of the transmission, keeping it clean and keeping it functioning in your car.
Why Change the Transmission Fluid
Over time, transmission fluid can decay, which means that the chemical additives and protectants are rendered more and more useless. Also, high temperatures can accelerate this decay, which is why so many transmission failures are caused by overheating. Changing the transmission fluid ensures that your chemical additives are intact and flushes out any contaminants that have made their way into the transmission fluid since it was last changed. A transmission fluid exchange protects the transmission, thereby protecting you from very costly repairs.
When to Get a Transmission Fluid Exchange
The timing of your transmission fluid exchange depends on whether you have a manual or automatic transmission. The best thing to do is to check your owner's manual for a specific recommendation for your Nissan if you're unsure. It will likely advise changing the fluid every 30,000 to 60,000 miles if it's a manual transmission or every 60,000 to 80,000 miles for an automatic transmission. It's especially important to get a transmission fluid exchange if your transmission starts having issues doing its job because small transmission failures can lead to large transmission problems.
