How Frequently Should My Transmission's Fluid Be Changed?

Perry's Quality Auto recommends that our customers in the greater Simi Valley area change their vehicle's transmission fluid every 3 years / 36,000 miles. The transmission technicians at Perry's Quality Auto recommend bringing your vehicle to our Simi Valley auto repair shop once a year for a transmission fluid change. If your vehicle is older, or you use it for hauling heavy loads and/or towing around the Simi Valley area, it may be required more frequently. To determine if a fluid change is needed, Perry's Quality Auto recommends an external diagnostic service. An external diagnostic service for a transmission includes checking the level and condition of your transmission fluid, a road test around Simi Valley, and putting your car on a lift at our shop to check your external transmission controls and to keep your transmission, and your vehicle, performing properly.
