A vehicle’s transmission fluid isn’t a simple maintenance matter like changing the air filter or the engine oil. The transmission fluid in a car or truck is generally designed to last for much longer. It should only need replacement at much higher mileage levels based on normal, long-term vehicle maintenance schedules. When serviced, the fluid can be either a full fluid replacement or flush, which pushes out the old with new fluid be leaves some remnant in the mix. Usually, a service check happens every 50,000 to 100,000 miles, depending on the vehicle type. However, there are signs that signal when it is definitely time to consider service.
