Ensure your vehicle’s optimum performance by changing automatic transmission fluid (ATF) when recommended by the car manufacturer. Transmission fluid acts as a lubricant for all the moving parts inside your transmission. For automatic transmissions, this fluid also acts as a coolant and viscous that transmits power from the engine to the transmission. It’s important to check your transmission fluid levels between intervals. Unlike engine oil, transmission oil doesn’t burn up, so if you’re low on transmission oil, you most likely have a leak.
Shop for motor oil, additives and protectants and power steering fluids by top brands such as Valvoline, Citgo, Mobil and Pennzoil.
