Automatic Transmission Fluid
Worn-out, oxidized transmission fluid that has broken down just can’t provide the same level of lubrication and protection as fresh fluid does.
The additives in the transmission fluid can be depleted over time and usage. As fluid contaminants and varnish buildup upon critical transmission surfaces, they certainly start to create problems over time. Dirty, worn-out transmission fluid will lead to the control valves sticking, and can cause bearings and clutches to stop working inside the transmission.
Your Transmission is Very Complicated Machinery
Your vehicles automatic transmission is certainly one of the most complicated mechanisms working in your automobile. In fact, there are over three thousand individual parts and components inside a modern automatic transmission. A fully working transmission involves mechanical systems, hydraulic systems, electrical systems and in some vehicles, computer controls, which all need to be perfectly working together.
Due to these facts automatic transmission repairs do require specialized treatment and can become very costly.
