Transmissions turn engine power into variable torque distributed to the drive wheels. Manual transmissions require the driver to select the gear, while automatic transmissions select the ideal gear given the road grade, engine RPMs, and the driver’s desired speed. All transmissions have internal parts requiring lubrication. Transmission fluid provides lubrication and protects the moving parts from overheating. Transmission fluid breaks down, collects debris such as metal shavings, and requires exchange service at the recommended interval, usually at 30,000 to 60,000 miles depending upon the transmission type and driving conditions.
Transmission fluid works within an extreme environment in variable conditions, leading to compositional change, debris accumulation, and possible leaking due to damaged components, such as gaskets and cooler lines. Transmission fluid trouble spells big trouble for vehicle mobility and can end in damaged components requiring costly repairs. Be sure to get a transmission inspection/diagnosis as soon as possible if you notice any of the transmission fluid trouble signs:
Service starts as the factory-trained and certified technician removes the old fluid from the transmission. We inspect the transmission housing, cooler lines, and gaskets for leaks before installing OEM fluid to the recommended capacity for your Ford model.
