Among the most catastrophic issues you can encounter with your vehicle, anything related to your transmission almost always demands immediate attention. But luckily, preventive maintenance that prioritizes your transmission can make all the difference.

One of the best preventative maintenance measures you can take involves having a fluid exchange performed, one of the essential transmission service offerings we provide our customers.

Today, the transmission service experts at Jiffy Lube® are here to give you a better idea of what you can expect when you take your vehicle in for transmission service and why a fluid exchange is one of the most important aspects of this process.

Transmission Service: The Fluid Exchange

One of the most important steps of any transmission service appointment is the fluid exchange process. Your transmission is essentially a series of gears affixed closely together to leverage the power of the engine to churn your wheels. These gears work extremely hard, and as a result, friction can rear its ugly head, as it often does throughout various components in your vehicle.

The fluids that lubricate your transmission can gunk up and get chock-full of particulate matter that not only fails to stop friction but even worse, can exacerbate the negative effects of wear-and-tear on your transmission.

During your transmission service appointment, your Certified Jiffy Lube® Transmission Service Technician will swap out the old fluids for new fluids, ensuring your transmission stays adequately lubricated.

The type of liquid your vehicle uses to lubricate your transmission varies from model to model, but here at Jiffy Lube®, our Certified Jiffy Lube® Transmission Service Technicians will find the right liquid for your make and model, so you can rest assured that you’re in good hands.
