Transmission fluid is a key part of all kinds of automotive transmissions.

All transmissions have moving components; this goes for manual, automatic, and continuously variable transmissions. It’s the job of the transmission fluid to keep the transmission lubricated so that friction does not damage its parts. In some cases, that’s not all that this fluid does. Automatic transmissions run hotter than manual transmissions, so automatic transmission fluid pulls double duty: it’s a coolant in addition to being a lubricant!
As time passes, the transmission fluid will no longer be as good at keeping the components lubricated. In manual transmissions, the fluid often becomes contaminated with tiny fragments of rubber and metal; automatic transmission fluid tends to break down due to heat. In either case, the fluid will lose its properties and will need to be drained and replaced. While some places perform a transmission fluid flush (where the transmission is subjected to high-pressure cleaning), it’s much safer and healthier to have a simple transmission fluid change performed. This is the service we offer at LaFontaine Buick GMC near Hartland, Michigan.
