Why should I get my car transmission serviced?

Transmissions are actually tough and durable. But they need to be maintained properly or they fail, in a big way. The fluid keeps the internal parts cool and lubricated. Over time the fluid naturally breaks down. The grit and grime from old fluid clogs up your transmission’s maze of passages and eats away at the seals and gaskets. Clean fluid protects the transmission from heat and keeps it shifting smoothly so we recommend servicing it at least every 50,000 miles. Or check your owner’s manual for a manufacturer suggested schedule.
