Is Your Volkswagen Due for a Transmission Fluid Exchange?

Did you know that your transmission fluid sometimes needs to be replaced? It's true. Whereas most people tend to think of only oil and windshield wiper solution as fluids that need to be changed, your transmission's lubricant is a crucial component that should not be overlooked. But just what does this fluid do, and how often do you need a Volkswagen transmission fluid exchange? Our experienced team at Prestige Volkswagen of Stamford has the answers!

Transmission Fluid Breaks Down Over Time

Like the other fluids coursing through your vehicle, the transmission fluid will eventually break down over time. This is due to the high-intensity heat and friction it is subjected to, although it does have a much longer lifespan than, say, the engine oil. Specifically, the transmission fluid acts as both a lubricant and a hydraulic fluid that enables your transmission to shift gears smoothly. It also keeps it cool and prevents overheating, and it's worth noting that old fluid becomes less effective with this task.

How Often Does Your Car Need a Volkswagen Transmission Fluid Exchange in Stamford

Your driving habits will largely determine how often you will need a transmission fluid exchange. Here in Stamford, many drivers are accustomed to heavy traffic and frequent stops and go's, which can actually accelerate transmission fluid deterioration. Well cared for Volkswagen models should have a transmission inspection done at least once every 10,000 miles to catch any issues early on. However, the fluid itself may not need to be changed until every 30,000 to 40,000 miles. If your Volkswagen has considerable mileage on it and you've never had a transmission inspection, you might just want to go ahead and get the fluid exchange done now.

Signs Your Vehicle is Overdue for a Transmission Fluid Exchange

It can be incredibly difficult to check the transmission fluid on your own. Unlike engine oil, it doesn't come with its own dipstick. It is highly recommended that you have it checked by experienced service professionals. That said, there are some signs you can look out for that may indicate your vehicle could benefit from a transmission fluid exchange:

  • Struggling to shift gears or fail to stay in gear
  • Delayed gear shifting
  • Burning smells (especially while shifting)
  • Squealing or grinding noises during different levels of acceleration
