I Have Over 100,000 Miles Should I Get A Transmission Fluid Change?
If your car or truck has high mileage such as 100,000 miles and the automatic transmission fluid has not been maintained its not recommend to replace the transmission fluid and transmission filter. The transmission fluid that has been in the automatic transmission all these years and miles has become dirty, gritty and broken down. This gritty transmission fluid is actually providing much needed friction for the worn internal parts of the automatic transmission. The old transmission fluid is gritty due to metal shavings caused by normal internal wear and tear on the transmission clutches and acts like liquid sandpaper. This "sandpaper" produces the friction needed for the transmission shift. Changing the automatic transmission fluid and replacing the transmission filter would remove this friction that the internal transmission parts have become dependent on as the clutches inside the transmission have nothing to grab on to.
Flushing your automatic transmission fluid is vital to the overall transmission performance and life. But you must flush it regularly, once the transmission fluid is damaged and burnt, it is sometimes best not to flush the automatic transmission. If you have not been regularly maintaining the automatic transmission throughout the life of the vehicle, you might actually be doing more harm than good if you replace the automatic transmission fluid at this point. For example, putting new clean transmission fluid in an older high mileage vehicle could cause the transmission to slip.
If you are not experiencing a transmission problem and have over 80,000 miles on your car or truck, and have not kept up regular maintenance on the transmission, you have a professional transmission mechanic evaluate your transmission situation first.
