If you keep a check on your vehicle's fluids, it will extend the life of your vehicle. We want to help our Aiea, HI shoppers become informed vehicle owners, so let's find out about your vehicle's transmission.

Your vehicle's transmission ensures that the right amount of power gets transferred to the wheels so that you can drive at any given speed. It functions by shifting gears the same way gears shift on a multi-speed bicycle. A transmission contains fluid that will need to be changed routinely. Most vehicles have a transmission dipstick that should reach the full indicator line when you remove it.

How often should you get your transmission fluid changed? This depends on your vehicle's manufacturer. Some suggest having it changed every 30,000 miles while others recommend transmission fluid changes every 100,000 miles. You can check your owner’s manual or ask one of our service technicians at Cutter Mitsubishi-Aiea to find out how often your vehicle needs a transmission fluid service.
