Automatic transmissions will need a new filter at every service to keep the fluid running clean and filter out debris. Manual transmissions do not have a filter, and some engines have a “sealed system” which means the filter cannot be accessed or changed. This is why it’s best to leave the work to the pros.
There are a few different types of transmission fluid that are used today. What is required for your vehicle will depend on whether it’s an automatic or manual transmission, as well as the exact model of vehicle and manufacturer’s recommendation. Always use the recommended fluids for the best results.
It may vary slightly from one vehicle to the next, but you’ll typically want to have your transmission fluid changed every two years or 30,000-40,000 miles.
Some people have a fluid change done more frequently than a full transmission flush and fill. A fluid exchange typically involves replacing about 60-75% of the transmission fluid with new fluid, while leaving a lot of the old fluid behind. The only way to guarantee clean, effective fluid is a full flush and fill to clean out the system.
