Yes you should change the tranny fluid if it is an automatic about every 25,000-30,000 miles and manuals can be changed at the same interval if toy want but can go 30,000-40,000 before the fluid should be changed.

I have a 2012 Rav4. I had my oil changed and I was told that my transmission fluid is black and smells burnt.I called Toyota I was told that my car's transmission never needed flushed.Is this true ?


It is a myth that trans mission oil never needs changing
All oils oxidise under extreme heat conditions ( and transmission oil reaches very hot temperatures) and bearings, bands and clutches do wear
again flushing is a general term incorrectly used
A transmission oil change generally removes the oil from the pan area but leaves 1/2 the torque converter with contaminated oil
That in turns re-contaminates the fresh oil
Flushing on the other hand is expensive as it require a considerable amount of new oil to do the job It is done with the engine running and fresh oil is drawn in as the old oil is pumped out
so you have to decide to have it changed or flushed as the difference can be in excess of $200.00 dollars BUT the results are also very different
Many manufacturers run sealed transmissions , for the sole purpose of preventing DIY people from putting in the wrong oil and so causing a problem in the transmission
remember that you most probably have a CV transmission
Constant velocity) which utilizers a drive belt between 2 pulleys and requires a special transmission oil as well
The transmission performs similar to the old automatic transmissions but is vastly different in internal construction
Normal period for a change ( depending on speed and operating conditions ) is 60,000miles so talk with an accredited specialist transmission shop to get an idea as to what is a good idea on oil changes

Should I change automatic transmission oil on my 2004 kia sedona?


forget the friends advice
automatic oil should be light tan or cherry red depending on the brand of oil used
the oil should be changed around the 60,000 klm mark and done by accredited transmission shops
If you have a CV-transmission that requires a special oil (not auto transmission oil as they are not automatic transmissions --they have a belt running between variable pulleys which gives the impression that it is automatic but it is not)

Should I change the transmission fluid on my 2005 dodge stratus?It has120.000 miles.Heard it can cause problems?fluid is clear.Mech thought he smelled slight burnt smell I didnt. shiftsok 1st notable.


oil has additives it it that over time deteriorate so a transmission oil change at 120.000miles would be appropriate
smelling the oil and detecting an odor would be a matter of experience and recognizing the smell
you have options
you can take a sample of the oil and have it analyzed in a oil testing laboratory to see if it is still good ,
change it at a transmission specialist shop ( might fix the notable 1st problem
or let it go and trust that problems will not start to appear
I know that some manufacturers do not recommend changing transmission oil but fresh oil is best for a reliable transmission

Transmission oil change


I take it you are talking auto transmission. Un do the drain plug in the box sump or if you do not have one remove the sump. replace filter in the sump . replace the sump with a new gasket and refill the sump. IF there is nothing wrong with the transmission and you only want to change the oil the best practice is to take it to a auto transmission shop where they can change the oil with the engine running and this changes the oil in the torque converter as well giving you a complete oil change. IT is more expensive as more oil is used but it changes all the oil and not just a part of the system. If your are talking manual, then remove the drain plug in the bottom of the gear box and when all the oil is out replace the plug tightly and remove the filler plug in the side of the box. Add oil until it runs out of the filler hole and when it stops replace the filler plug tightly. Use the correct grade of oils in both cases.

While i was doing off road driving a warnning light (a/t oil temp) turn on, i looked underneath the car and i found oil leak drop after drop, not too sure now should I change the transmition oil and filter...


Change the transmission fluid and filter. The light says fluid temp. is high, so you may have some burnt fluid-deadly for transmissions. Drop the trans. pan and look for metal shavings-too much will indicate failure of transmission parts. If not too much, you may be alright with fluid and filter change.
Stop the leak,. make sure it is trans. fluid, not motor oil. If motor oil, stop the leak and change oil and filter. I would do the transmission regardless, since the light came on.

Should I have the oil in transmission changed?


I would not go by the oil change company recommendation.
It's much better to go by the car manufacturer's recommendation. Look in your owner's manual for the recommended time/mileage to change the transmission oil and filter.
