How Frequently Should My Transmission's Fluid Be Changed?

Benchmark Transmission & Auto Care recommends that our customers in the greater Newark & Middletown area change their vehicle's transmission fluid every 3 years / 36,000 miles. The transmission technicians at Benchmark Transmission & Auto Care recommend bringing your vehicle to our Newark & Middletown auto repair shop once a year for a transmission fluid change. If your vehicle is older, or you use it for hauling heavy loads and/or towing around the Newark & Middletown area, it may be required more frequently. To determine if a fluid change is needed, Benchmark Transmission & Auto Care recommends an external diagnostic service. An external diagnostic service for a transmission includes checking the level and condition of your transmission fluid, a road test around Newark & Middletown, and putting your car on a lift at our shop to check your external transmission controls and to keep your transmission, and your vehicle, performing properly.
