Is a Transmission service necessary?

The automatic transmission is one of your vehicles most expensive and hardest working systems. As the transmission fluid ages, it stops cleaning and protecting the moving parts. You may notice hard shifting, slipping, or chattering when this occurs. Nate's Garage recommends fluid should be changed every 30,000 to 50,000 miles, but is also dependent upon your vehicles transmission type, how often the vehicle is driven, and a few more factors. Always check your owners manual for reference. Changing transmission fluid more often than recommended will ensure the transmission remains healthy.
