Regular transmission fluid flushes reduce the chance a very costly repair will be needed and the chance of an unexpected breakdown. Heat is the nemesis of transmission fluid – it causes the fluid to oxidize reducing the lubrication capacity which accelerates the wear on internal components. Manufacturers have engineered methods that reduce heat, but this fluid still gets extremely hot every time you drive. Flushing every 30,000 miles is usually sufficient.
