MAINTENANCE TIPS

  • When the fluid becomes contaminated, drain the fluid, flush the system with DEXRON-VI Automatic Transmission Fluid, and refill with new fluid.
  • Make sure to flush the transmission with DEXRON-VI Automatic Transmission Fluid, not a solvent.
  • Do not add any aftermarket additives to the fluid – they are not necessary and should not be used.
  • Transmission fluid should be replaced when it becomes contaminated.
  • Anything but transmission fluid in the transmission is considered a contaminant.
  • Always use the recommended type of transmission fluid in your vehicle, as referred to in your owner’s manual.
  • Typical fluid change intervals for automatic transmissions range from 40,000 to 60,000 miles depending on the severity of the usage. See your owner’s manual.
  • In addition to fluid replacement, it is important to regularly check your transmission fluid level.
  • A low transmission fluid level can cause the vehicle to shift improperly or not at all.
  • Stay vigilant – warning signs of low transmission fluid may not appear until serious damage has already occurred.
