The life of a new transmission fluid is dependent on operating temperatures, which are dependent on your vehicle, its state of repair, and how you drive it. If you have an older car, chances are that you should change your transmission fluid several times per year. Most new cars only require a change every 30,000 miles, which is less than once per year for most drivers.
No matter what type of car you drive, it is important that you consult your owner’s manual and change your transmission fluid at least as often as the manual recommends. If your vehicle is due for a transmission fluid change and you would like to have your transmission checked while you are it, call Superior Transmissions at (301) 358-6288 to schedule an appointment with an experienced transmission specialist in the Washington, D.C. area. If your vehicle’s transmission needs to be repaired or replaced, it is better for you to know so that you can make arrangements for your transmission work before changing your transmission fluid.
