What Is Transmission Fluid?

Regardless of whether you have an automatic or manual transmission, the transmission fluid keeps all the moving parts in your VW model's transmission lubricated, allowing it to function smoothly. This is about the extent of what it does in a manual transmission, but automatic transmission fluid takes on more roles. It also helps transfer power from the engine to the transmission. In addition, it will help keep the transmission from overheating. Automatic transmissions run hotter than manual transmissions, so this is an important function.

Why Are Transmission Fluid Changes Necessary?

If your VW has a manual transmission, the transmission fluid can become contaminated over time. As tiny bits of rubber and shavings of metal begin to come loose and float in the transmission fluid, it can become less effective as a lubricant. If you drive a VW with an automatic transmission, the fluid can also become contaminated, but you'll also have to deal with transmission fluid breakdown, resulting from the heat generated by automatic transmissions.

How Often Does My VW Need a Transmission Fluid Exchange?

At Prestige Volkswagen of Melbourne, we recommend having the transmission fluid exchanged every 30,000 miles. Of course, as a certified Volkswagen service center, we will use VW-approved transmission fluid designed for whichever kind of transmission your VW model has. This will ensure that your transmission receives only fluid that's high in quality. We'll also inspect the transmission housing, the cooler lines, and all seals for leaks. When you visit us at Prestige Volkswagen of Melbourne, your VW will leave in exceptional condition.
