Automatic Transmission Fluid Exchange Service

Today's Automatic Transmission 

The modern automatic transmission demonstrates the pinnacle of today's automotive engineering technology. Transmissions accept power generated by the engine and sends torque into each drive wheel variably as needed for a smooth ride given the roadway terrain and the desired speed of travel. In what seems to be engineering wizardry, the automatic transmission can do all of this automatically using a series of sensors, computer programming, and an electronic control unit. However, this modern high-tech innovation continues to rely on transmission fluid to get the job done as it keeps the moving parts lubricated and cool. It is for this very reason that an Automatic Transmission Fluid Exchange Service at the recommended maintenance interval is a wise vehicle management strategy.
