The transmission fluid is one of the most vital fluids to monitor in your car. Whether or not you should change it is a non-issue: Yes, you should. However, there is disagreement about how often this service needs to be done by manufacturer and car.

Many automatic gearboxes require little if any fluid change until 100,000 miles or perhaps 150,000 miles. A lot of professionals believe that it should be changed at least every 50,000 miles. Because manual transmissions run on heavier gear oil rather than automatic transmission fluid, they have a different maintenance schedule and are best addressed in the owner’s handbook.
