It’s been reported by auto shops that some vehicle owners don’t think about the condition of their vehicle’s transmission until they find themselves broken down on the side of the road. Because transmission repair can be quite expensive, it is smart to schedule periodic transmission services, which may include a transmission fluid change. If you are noticing transmission problems, such as slipping gears, jerky shifting, or transmission that overheats, it may be too late!

You may start to wonder just how often do transmissions need to be replaced? Basically, a transmission should almost last the entire life of your vehicle if you keep up with regular transmission service, which includes:

  • For manual transmissions, the clutch pedal needs to be inspected and adjusted fairly frequently,
  • The condition of the transmission fluid should be checked at least once a year. It may simply need be topped-off or a complete transmission fluid change may be necessary,
  • Cleaning the sump pump,
  • Cleaning or replacing the transmission’s filter as needed, and
  • Replacing the pan gasket.

Service on your transmission is relatively inexpensive compared to the cost of major transmission repair. If you want your vehicle to remain reliable, schedule an inspection of your vehicle’s transmission and a transmission fluid change service at least once a year.

A word of advice: Check the level and condition of transmission fluid regularly (such as at every oil change or tire rotation). A transmission in tip-top condition is crucial for the safe operation of your vehicle.

Still, wondering how often do transmissions need to be replaced? Contact our ASE Certified technicians at Phil’s Service to schedule an appointment for a transmission fluid change. Our auto shop proudly serves residents in the community of Killeen, TX, and the surrounding area.
