To understand exactly whether it is time to change the oil or not, you need to monitor the behaviour of your car, check its condition and level. There are several main criteria by which it is possible to identify oil wear and make a decision about its premature replacement:

  • The oil level drops to minimum marks. A simple topping up of fresh transmission fluid can be dispensed with. But if the oil has not changed for a long time, you should not mix the old worn-out grease with the new one. The effect will be minimal and the knot will continue to wear out.
  • The colour of the liquid has changed. The most informative method for determining gear oil wear. The loss of the physicochemical properties of the composition is indicated by its black or dark brown colour. If you see the oil in this condition, it must be changed in the near future.
  • Smell. Fresh oil, which retains its characteristics, has a rather pleasant, soft smell. If the aroma has changed, it has become harsh and unpleasant, this indicates strong wear of the mixture. Replacement required.
