No matter what kind of transmission is in your Ford vehicle, transmission fluid is needed to lubricate the gears for smooth, quiet performance. From time to time, you’ll need this fluid drained from the transmission and replaced with fresh transmission fluid for optimal performance and longevity. Head to LaFontaine Ford of Lansing for this important service! Our expert Ford technicians can replace the transmission fluid in your transmission with fresh fluid designed specifically for your vehicle’s best performance.
The transmission fluid serves several purposes inside your transmission. It lubricates the gears and conditions seals, keeping them from cracking and leaking over time. It also keeps the transmission clean, capturing any dirt or dust inside. Over time, the transmission fluid will become dirty and break down. Failing to change the transmission fluid can lead to rough shifts or failure to shift. In an automatic transmission, dirty transmission fluid can even prevent engine power from getting to the wheels if the gears spin freely without transferring power to the driveshaft. Have the transmission fluid in your car replaced as part of routine, preventative maintenance to prevent these issues.
The good news is modern transmission fluid is designed to last a very long time between services. Check the owner’s manual that came with your vehicle to find the replacement interval recommended for your vehicle. For example, the 2019 Ford Explorer only needs a transmission fluid exchange service every 150,000 miles.
