Why is transmission service essential?


Over time, transmission fluid contamination happens in both manual and automatic vehicle transmissions. Bearings and gears in the transmission erode, causing metal particles to drift around in the lubricant. Dirty oil does not perform as well as clean oil, so the polluted oil should be drained out, or it will undesirably affect the life of the transmission. In automatic transmission vehicles, the fluid itself degrades with use, as a result of heat generation in an automatic transmission. Transmission service prevents problems relating to these issues.
