Volkswagen Transmission Fluid Exchange Service

When Your Volkswagen Needs Transmission Fluid Exchange Service, Head To Volkswagen of Macon, GA

The transmission in your Volkswagen plays a huge role in making your vehicle go. It serves to transfer the power created in the engine to the wheels, allowing your VW to carry you to your destination. Though the transmission is a relatively low-maintenance component, it will need its transmission fluid exchanged at certain intervals. When those intervals arrive, look no further than Volkswagen of Macon, serving West Oak and Bolingbroke, GA! We have a state-of-the-art service center staffed by expert technicians who will be glad to perform this service.

What Does Transmission Fluid Do?

No matter what type of transmission your Volkswagen model has, the transmission fluid serves to keep the moving parts lubricated. This is a very important way to prevent excessive wear and the damage that's caused by friction. However, transmission fluid does extra work in automatic transmissions. These transmissions run hotter than manual transmissions, so the transmission fluid serves to keep the transmission cool enough by acting as a coolant, as well. What's more, it can even help transfer power from the engine to the transmission.

Why Is Transmission Fluid Exchange Service Necessary for My VW?

Over time, the transmission fluid will become less effective as a lubricant, reducing the lifespan of your transmission. If you go long enough without replacing the fluid, it can even cause your transmission to suffer massive damage, making it necessary for you to have it replaced. In automatic transmissions, it's usually fluid degradation that causes the transmission fluid to be less effective. If you drive a Volkswagen model with a manual transmission, the lower heat means that the fluid is less likely to become degraded. However, it is more likely to become contaminated with microscopic particles of rubber and metal.

How Often Should I Bring My VW to Volkswagen of Macon for Transmission Fluid Exchange Service?

The experts at Volkswagen of Macon recommend that you have the transmission fluid in your VW model exchanged every 30,000 miles. However, if your VW owner's manual recommends that you have this service performed more frequently, it's best to do so. When the technicians at Volkswagen of Macon perform this service, they do more than just replace the old fluid with VW-approved transmission fluid: they will also inspect the transmission housing, seals, and cooler lines to make sure that there are no leaks.
