Common Questions

FAQ'sHow often should I change my fluid?
Most automotive manufacturers recommend that you change your transmission fluid every 3 years or 36,000 miles (consult your owner's manual).

We have found that a good rule of thumb is every 25,000 to 35,000 miles. Your fluid will need to be changed more frequently if your car is driven in city and stop-and-go traffic. If you drive long distances on the highway your fluid will need to be changed less frequently. For cars that are rarely driven or have not been driven for over two years, moisture will collect and this will cause excessive transmission wear, so don't forget those collector cars.

What are considered "normal driving conditions"?
In a perfect world: 60-degree weather, no dust in the air, no starting or stopping and certainly no towing. Actually, very few of us even drive our passenger cars under “normal driving conditions." Vehicles that are driven occasionally or for short distances are in many cases subject to unusual wear. Low mileage transmissions used for city driving are subject to more wear than a car with the same mileage driven primarily on the highway.

What are some of the things that "hurt" my transmission?

  1. Excessive heat will break down the lubricants causing the transmission to wear faster.
  2. Towing or excessive weight in your vehicle, especially when driving your car in overdrive (O / D). All weight needs to be considered. It's not just what you are towing. It is also everything you have loaded into the car for your job or your family vacation.
  3. Not coming to a complete stop before moving from reverse to drive of from drive to reverse.

Testimonial My wife and I were in St. Louis last month visiting our daughter and family, celebrating the arrival of their second daughter at Barnes Hospital. The day before we planned to leave for our home in Texas, our 1989 Ford developed a transmission problem.
