A vehicle is working over the inter-linkages of a pile of metal components, bumper to bumper it is fastened and linked with a cluster of nuts bolts, gears, bearings and links. The whole mechanism is linked and fastened by metals parts, and so it causes rough friction and traction over each other. The role of transmission fluids come into play at these conditions. We may notice at the time of servicing the mechanics are using a lot of greasing in every part, especially in the moving parts. The joints and linkages are the important components which make a vehicle moving. Since the start to stop, each and every component which helps to run our vehicle might be in some kind of movement.
Let’s come to the transmission system, from the engine to the drive axels the role of transmission fluids is an inevitable requirement. Transmission fluids are used to lubricate the components of a car’s transmission for optimum performance. In vehicles with automatic transmissions, this fluid also acts as a coolant. There are several types of auto transmission fluids, and the type used in individual cars and trucks depends on the type of transmission used in the vehicle. Automatic transmissions use regular automatic transmission fluids. Manual transmission fluids can vary, however, The type of transmission fluid to use in vehicles with standard transmissions can usually be found in the maintenance section of the owner’s manual. The function of fluids are similar, yet its types may vary, it helps the moving parts to work seamlessly with a less friction and heat, clean and protect metal surfaces from wear, enhance cooling function and reduce high operating temperatures, Increase rotational speed and temperature range, though it is exposed to continuous temperature difference it won’t degrade rapidly, some automatic transmissions may never require the fluid to be changed, although most mechanics recommend changing it every 60,000 to 100,000 miles. Manual transmissions require more frequent transmission oil changes, usually every 30,000 to 60,000 miles. But if you feel like your vehicle hesitates to shift gears you have to check the fluid level and it will save from paying for the new transmission system through your nose.
