Automatic transmission fluid lubricates, cools and cleans internal transmission parts. Additives in the fluid can deplete over time and many manufacturers recommend that it be replaced periodically. Manual transmissions also contain fluid to lubricate the gears. The trained technicians at Swee Hing can help you with a Transmission Fluid Change. Whether your vehicle has an automatic or manual transmission, we’ll change your old transmission fluid for new fluid and get you back on the road in no time at all.
Automatic transmission gears deliver power from the engine to the drive wheels. Over time, the fluid inside the automatic transmission degrades. Manufacturers often recommend replacement at intervals stated in years of service or miles of driving. The interval may be shorter for severe use. Replacing transmission fluid at the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended service intervals improves lubrication and helps to maximize the life of the transmission. Swee Hing technicians can advise you about the manufacturer’s recommendations for your vehicle’s automatic transmission fluid replacement. They can also advise you about the manufacturer’s recommendations for replacing the internal filter that removes contaminants from the fluid and adjustment of the “bands” that manage the gear-changing function.
Manual transmission lubricant protects gears, bearings, shafts and other internal components. Changing the manual transmission fluid at Swee Hing at the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended interval can help prevent premature wear, damage to the transmission and costly repairs.
