Transmission fluid serves a similar purpose in both manual and automatic transmissions, although it does more in automatic transmissions. For both types, it keeps the moving components lubricated so that friction doesn’t damage them. In an automatic transmission, the transmission fluid also serves as a coolant. This is because automatic transmissions generate considerably more heat than manual transmissions.
The transmission fluid in your VW may become contaminated as time goes by. Microscopic shavings of metal and rubber pieces can come loose and float around in the fluid, which makes it less effective at lubricating your transmission. This is possible in automatic and manual transmissions, but automatic transmissions have another potential problem: transmission fluid degradation. Because automatic transmissions generate so much heat, the fluid itself can begin to break down. In either case, the fluid will need to be exchanged so that the transmission in your VW continues to function properly.
At Volkswagen of New Port Richey, we recommend that your Volkswagen get its transmission fluid exchanged every 30,000 miles. This timeline means that your VW model’s transmission won’t have to deal with fluid that’s too contaminated or degraded. When we perform this service, we’ll drain the old transmission fluid and replace it with high-quality factory-approved VW transmission fluid, ensuring exceptional performance. We’ll also inspect the transmission housing and other components to make sure that there are no leaks.
