Question: 

Why should I get my transmission fluid serviced?

Answer: 

An automatic transmission in your vehicle is essentially a gigantic hydraulic pump. It uses the transmission fluid to transfer engine torque to your drive wheels through a “torque converter” to a series of pumps and valves to control the transmission fluid flow and pressure. As with other fluid systems on your Auto, much is expected of this transmission fluid and it deteriorates rapidly with, contaminants, heat, and oxidation–transmission fluid will tend to thicken over time and not flow as it needs to and therefore reduce the efficiency of this unit, as well as shorten the transmission useful life. Transmission failure is can be costly and routine maintenance is the best way to prevent that from happening to your vehicle. Most manufacturers recommend servicing the transmission fluid every 30,000 miles or 12months.
