Transmission Fluid Exchange

Kia Transmission Fluid Exchange Service in Dearborn, MI

Every part of your car is important. Which is why you have to take good care of it. You need to take your car in for monthly checks. Not a single little detail should be missed. That includes your transmission fluid. But why is it so important for your car?

We Know that You have Questions

We know what you are thinking. What is transmission fluid? Why does it need to be changed? What does it matter if it doesn’t get changed or not? Where do you need to go get it changed? We at LaFontaine Kia are here to answer your questions.


Transmission Fluid

What exactly is transmission fluid and why do you need it for your vehicle? Transmission fluid is the slippery fluid that is used for reducing friction inside parts of your transmission. This is the type of lubrication that will keep your car running smoothly. Transmission fluid will also keep everything cool. Not every car uses the same transmission fluid; they have to use different brands. Failing to use the right fluid can be quite messy and end up eating through your bank account.

Why is it So Important for Your Car?

To answer this question will depend on what type of car you have. Manual cars need transmission fluid because it will keep all the parts in your transmission running smoothly with no problems. Cars with automatic transmissions need the fluid to keep things running smoothly just the same. Without transmission fluid, your car will break down and overheat which could lead to a costly transmission replacement.

What Will Happen if I Don’t Change the Fluid?

Again to answer this question will depend on what type of car you have. Manual cars have the problem of fluid contamination. When synchronizers, bearings, and gears wear out in the transmission, contamination will end up in oil and decrease the lubrication. With an automatic transmission, heat is more of a problem. Automatic transmission fluid will break down with use. Either way, you are going to cause serious damages if you do not change the transmission fluid in time.

Where Do I Go to Get it Changed in Wayne County, Michigan?

Come down to the service center at LaFontaine Kia. Our certified technicians will take the time to look at all of your problems. Come in once you reach 60,000 miles (ca. 96,561 km). We will see the condition your transmission fluid is in and get right to work. It is better to have your car brought into our shop at the first sign of trouble than to end up draining your bank account to get your car fixed.
