Tip & How-To about Cars & Trucks
This is from our transmission shop and many others like us: If you have not religiously changed your automatic transmission fluid every 30,000 miles, STOP - DO NOT Change the fluid or filter, not only is it a waste of money, but the old fluid has 'particles in suspension' (clutch disc fibers), and when you replace the fluid you are removing those particles, of which, the clutch discs now need for internal engagement (when fluid is not changed regularly). This supporting fact comes from many reputable transmission shops (including ours), that have found out throughout the years that: "If you DO change the fluid on high mileage automatic transmissions that have NOT had transmission oil changes on a regular interval as described by the OEM's,(Original Engine Manufacturers) suggestion; transmission FAILURE will result within 1 to 6 MONTHS of further use." Save money and heed this warning!!
