What Manual Transmission Service Consists Of

Some automatic transmissions need fluid service at varying intervals depending on the make and model of vehicle, but with a manual transmission, the service becomes far more important, and should typically be conducted about every 30,000 miles of vehicle use. It isn't a difficult process for a professional familiar with the procedure and equipped with the appropriate tools. Essentially, it is simply draining the old transmission fluid and refilling the reservoir with fresh new fluid. An experienced technician will also check for any other potential problems and recognize any transmission symptoms you describe which might indicate a further inspection.

Manual Transmission Fluid Flush & Replacement

The fluid has to be changed because it gets hot and begins to burn at times and because it can occasionally get debris or condensation buildup, causing it to perform less effectively than intended. Essentially, the transmission fluid is an oil, specific for the needs of the transmission gears, for lubrication and cooling as the metal gears rub against each other during normal operation of the car. Transmission service is especially important with manual transmission because even the best of drivers are putting more strain on the system by not operating the clutch as efficiently as an automatic transmission can perform. Of course, the upside of the manual transmission is it gives the driver more direct control over the car, which can be well worth the extra stress caused by manually clutching and shifting gears.

What Happens if Transmission Issues are Ignored

If the transmission fluid isn't changed, metal shavings or possibly excess gasket or gasket sealant will wind up in the fluid. When those pieces get in the gears, they prevent the fluid from properly lubricating the moving parts, wearing them down further. Eventually, the transmission won't work in certain gears and will need a complete rebuild project, or possibly even a replacement transmission. Or perhaps a better way to phrase it is the car will eventually need such service regardless, but it will be required much sooner in a car that hasn't had the transmission fluid properly replaced on schedule, resulting in far more expenses over the lifetime of the vehicle.

Finding a Dealer to Conduct Vehicle Maintenance

With modern cars, routine maintenance and transmission fluid exchange services should be provided by an authorized dealer who understands what the car needs and when, and is aware of any applicable warranties or recalls which may apply.

You'll find our technicians to be courteous and helpful, able to get you back on the road with full confidence in your car's performance.
