Transmission Fluid and Filter Service
To prevent any service from being over sold or under sold, it is important to not only know that a particular service should be performed, but also why it should be performed. That knowledge can also help you spot when to recommend that service, and when not to. When speaking about transmission fluid, the short version of the explanation is that it gets dirty and wears out.
As the friction material of a clutch or band begins to apply, there is a brief slipping period. It is during that slipping period that heat is generated that cooks the fluid, friction material wears off and enters the fluid, and the fluid’s molecules are being sheared. The gears also heat the fluid and grind at the fluid’s molecules, as well as contaminate it with metal.
