Automatic Transmission Fluid Exchange
Transmission Service in Minneapolis
The importance of routine maintenance can’t be stressed enough for your Volkswagen. A well-maintained vehicle will give you countless years of reliable service, whereas neglect will take years off the overall life of your vehicle. The seasoned experts at Volkswagen of Inver Grove know just how important regularly scheduled maintenance is.
Routine maintenance often includes the exchange of lubricants and other fluids that are critical for your car’s operations. For instance, your automatic transmission fluid must be changed on a regular basis to preserve your transmission’s reliability and performance.
Why Invest in Automatic Transmission Fluid Exchange?
Automatic transmission fluid, commonly known as ATF, plays an important role in Volkswagen’s automatic transmission. ATF not only lubricates the various components inside your automatic transmission, but it also provides cooling by absorbing the transmission’s heat and transfers it to the transmission cooler. ATF also provides the hydraulic pressure needed for the transmission to properly select each gear.
Your Volkswagen’s performance depends on automatic transmission fluid that’s in good condition. With time and usage, the fluid will slowly lose its additives along with its lubricating properties. To keep your automatic transmission going strong, the ATF must be exchanged according to your Volkswagen’s recommended service intervals.
Plenty of bad things can happen if you don’t change your automatic transmission fluid in time. Failure to change your ATF could result in increased wear and tear on your transmission. Your transmission may also shift harder than usual or suffer from delayed shifts. Ultimately, failure to change your ATF can condemn your transmission to early failure.
