Transmission fluid is a slippery liquid that acts as a lubricant for all of the moving parts inside your transmission. In an automatic transmission, this fluid also serves as a coolant and a viscous fluid that transmits power from the engine to the transmission.

How often do you have to change transmission fluid?

  1. Manual Transmissions: Most vehicle manufacturers recommend a transmission fluid change between every 30,000 to 60,000 miles. The problem is fluid contamination which occurs over time as the synchronizers, bearings and gears in the transmission wear out. The resulting metal particles then float around in the lubricant. Oil that contains microscopic particles of metal does not lubricate as well as clean oil. So if these contaminants are not drained out, they will shorten the life of your transmission. 
  2. Automatic Transmissions: A fluid change for automatic transmissions can vary from every 30,000 miles to possibly never. Because more heat is generated in an automatic transmission, automatic transmission fluid actually degrades and breaks down with use. It also becomes contaminated with worn bits of the transmission.
If you avoid routine transmission service on your car, you will find yourself spending a lot of money on repair. Ask your trusted mechanic for advice about how often do you have to change transmission fluid.

Nearly two-thirds of vehicles are not road-worthy because of overlooked tire repair. Even worse, more fatal collisions occur, especially during the winter months, due to missed tire service inspections. Noise, vibrations, hydroplaning, and accidents—this is what could happen if you neglect regular tire service.

Good tires are, above all, your guarantee for a safe and comfortable trip. They are the only contact between you and the road, and if the quality is inferior, this diminishes the vehicle's performance, not to mention the safety of you and your loved ones.

Wondering how often should you get your tires rotated? Call Expert Car Care's mechanic today for advice. Don't wait until you find yourself stranded on the road

What are automotive shocks and struts? How long do shocks and struts last? Automotive shocks and struts are probably an afterthought to most drivers because they don't require routine replacement like oil or other components. Shocks and struts are very different parts that perform the same basic function of supporting the vehicle weight and providing overall stability. Although they perform the same function, the parts are not interchangeable or combined with a vehicle. This means that a vehicle will have either one or the other in most cases. There are some vehicles that will have struts in the front and shocks in the back.

If you're wondering how long do shocks and struts last, then you should ask your auto mechanic for more information about the purpose of automotive shocks
