Transmission fluid is a lubricant for all the moving parts in the transmission of a vehicle. Manual transmission fluid should be changed every 30,000 to 60,000 miles. Automatic transmissions should be serviced every 60,000 to 100,000 miles, where it can be determined if the fluid needs to be replaced.
In both transmissions, the fluid can get contaminated from pieces of the transmission, and if the fluid isn’t drained, this could shorten the lifespan of your transmission. If you don’t get your transmission fluid checked or changed in regular intervals, you may end up needing a transmission repair or replacement. And if you notice a leak of any kind, you should get it checked out immediately.
