What Happens When Transmission Fluid Maintenance is Neglected?

Defective transmission fluid will allow for the internal parts to experience increased friction and heat. The minor consequence of this is increased temperatures with excessive wear and tear. The major consequence is transmission overheating, damages, and costly repairs that could include a full replacement. It is important to know the symptoms of defective transmission fluid and get service immediately if any of them appear in your driving experience:

  • Difficulty or refusal to change gears
  • Leaking fluid that will puddle under the vehicle
  • Extreme heat inside the cabin
  • Burnt smell
  • Dashboard warning light

All About Transmission Fluid.

The transmission system is sophisticated with computerized mechanics delivering variable torque into drive wheels using a complex arrangement of gearing. The internal parts require a lubricant to limit friction and heat, while the automatic transmission’s fluid acts as an energy-transferring hydraulic. Transmission fluid is not only vital to the transmission’s performance, but defective fluid can cause severe damage and immobilize a vehicle. Because the fluid can break down, get contamination, or leak from a worn gasket, it requires routine inspections and exchange service as recommended in the owner’s manual.

What Does Transmission Fluid Exchange Include?

The service happens in our state-of-the-art facility with a certified technician. We will remove the old fluid, inspect the transmission thoroughly, and install genuine OEM transmission fluid to specifications.

Why Transmission Fluid Should be Exchanged at Serra BMW Champaign.

The transmission’s internal components generate significant friction and heat that are ultimately contained by the lubricating fluid. Given enough exposure to friction and heat, the fluid is susceptible to thermal breakdown, contamination, and can leak from worn components. With fresh fluid keeping the transmission’s parts nicely lubricated and cool, you will want to protect this complicated system with routine fluid inspections and exchange service when it is found to be defective.
