VW Transmission Fluid Exchange Service

Requesting Volkswagen Transmission Fluid Services in South Jordan, UT

While the car engine is probably the most important component for actually making a car move, it won’t go anywhere without the transmission. The vehicle transmission is essential in translating the engine’s power to the wheels that actually move when a driver hits the gas and wants to go somewhere. This complex assembly of gears and shafts works extremely well and for years at a time, but like anything metal, it needs constant lubrication to operate correctly.



VW Transmission Fluid Services

The transmission gearbox is the repository for most of the transmission fluid. It bathes the gears, keeps them constantly lubricated so they don’t grind against each other, and the box seal keeps all the fluid inside so it doesn’t get contaminated. However, the fluid gets old eventually, and metal shavings build up. The fluid then needs to be changed periodically, flushing out the old material and lubrication and replacing it with brand new fluid that is clean and read to last for another few years. The process also includes checking the gaskets in the gearbox to ensure the fluid doesn’t leak out.


Why Transmission Fluid Service Seems Random

Compared to engine oil changes, transmission fluid almost seems like it doesn’t need to be changed every. The reality is that it does need replacement eventually but under a much longer replacement cycle. However, it’s not a simple matter of just pouring more in the spigot like one does topping off engine oil. Transmission fluid types are often matched to the vehicles and assemblies they are installed into, so it’s not a smart idea to just run off and grab some “universal” product to do a swap out. That said, a typical transmission fluid life expectancy can be up to 100,000 miles in some newer cases, as long as there are no leaks or contamination.
