When to Schedule a Transmission Fluid Change at Our Schaumburg Service Center

December 12th, 2019 by

Do you want to buy a new Lexus car, or has one of our pre-owned Lexus vehicles captured your interest? Whether you want to buy or lease a new Lexus model or you plan to purchase a pre-owned car, you’ll need to bring it in for service from time to time to ensure it continues to operate properly.

Your vehicle will need certain services more often than others. For example, you’ll probably have to get your car’s oil changed every three months, every or 3,000 to 5,000 miles. It’s also advisable to have your tires rotated every other time you schedule an oil change to make sure they wear evenly. Other services won’t need to be scheduled as frequently, but you’ll still need to ensure they’re done in accordance with the recommendations in your owner’s manual. Having the fluid in your transmission changed is one of those infrequent services you shouldn’t neglect.

If your car has a manual transmission, it’s wise to change its liquid every 30,000 to 60,000 miles in most cases. Motorists who use their vehicle for heavy-duty tasks on a regular basis should expect to have their transmission fluid replaced more often, perhaps as often as every 15,000 miles or so.

While some automatic transmissions never have to have their fluid changed, a lot of them do. If your automatic transmission requires fluid changes, it’s likely that you’ll need to replace its fluid every 60,000 to 100,000 miles, although some models may be able to go longer between fluid changes.

Is your automobile due for a transmission fluid change or another type of service? If so, make an appointment to bring your vehicle into our Lexus service center near Roselle, IL. Head over to Woodfield Lexus now!
