What Is A Transmission Fluid Exchange?

When you take your Kia into the shop for a transmission fluid exchange in La Vale (or any other nearby community), the process appears relatively simple. Still, it requires a certified expert to make sure it is done properly. A transmission fluid exchange involves draining out the old transmission fluid and replacing it with new fresh transmission fluid. An important part of the process is making sure the old fluid is completely drained as it can contain debris and contaminate any new fluid added.

Why Does Transmission Fluid Need Exchanging?

Your transmission fluid breaks down over time like many other automotive fluids, mostly due to the heat regular driving in Frostburg can cause. This breakdown causes transmission fluid to lose its ability to keep your transmission's many moving parts properly lubricated. This can be quite dangerous as it causes your transmission to run hot, which is often the top cause of transmission failure. This can lead to accidents and cause the need for expensive repairs or a full transmission replacement.

How Often Should You Exchange Your Kia's Transmission Fluid?

You should have a Kia transmission fluid exchange done every 30,000 to 60,000 or about every two years. It's also important to pay attention to your driving habits and the environment you drive in as external factors can cause you to need fluid exchanges more often. Such factors can include regular towing and having to change gears often, which often occurs in heavy traffic.

Signs You Need New Transmission Fluid

Your Kia's transmission is one of its most important parts, and if your transmission fluid needs changing, there will be noticeable performance issues when driving to Cresaptown. Issues can include grinding noises when you change gears, random stalling when you put the car into gear, problems changing gears, your car randomly jumping forward or falling back, and slipping gears. If you see any of these issues, you should have a certified professional check your car immediately as you are risking damage to your transmission and other parts of your Kia.
