When your car needs a Volkswagen transmission fluid exchange, the first step is to find a reputable and fully-certified mechanic in Natick or any nearby community. When you bring your car in for a transmission fluid exchange, your Volkswagen’s old transmission fluid will be replaced with new fluid, ensuring it works safely and effectively for all your driving needs. A transmission inspection while having your fluid changed can also be useful for alerting you to any potential issues.
As you drive in Newton, your transmission fluid is under a great deal of heat and pressure as you shift gears, and over time, your transmission fluid breaks down. An important part of your car’s transmission fluid is the additives added to it as they help keep your transmission free from debris and help keep the temperature under control. As your transmission fluid breaks down, these additives lose their effectiveness, putting your car's health and drivability at risk and can lead to expensive repairs.
Your transmission fluid should be changed every 30,000 miles. However, other factors can cause your transmission fluid to require changing more often, and you should always pay attention to your Volkswagen’s performance. Issues that can cause your transmission fluid to require more frequent changes include frequent towing and driving in conditions that lead to a lot of gear changes such as stop and go traffic.
Missing transmission fluid change intervals can be dangerous and can present a hazard to you and your automobile. Without fresh transmission fluid, your transmission can start performing erratically and start skipping gears, sticking, or making it so you can’t change gears at all, making your car inoperable. These performance issues can cause an accident or leave your car waiting for a tow in a Needham parking lot. In addition to this, old transmission fluid cannot safely protect your transmission leading to overheating, leading to expensive repairs, or a complete transmission replacement.
