Automatic Transmission/Transaxle Fluid
The fluid in your automatic transmission is essential for smooth shifts and optimal performance. Over time, the fluid may become contaminated, which can create slippage during shifting and could even damage your transmission.
Transmission fluid should be light red or pink. Fluid that needs to be changed will be amber or brown. If it’s a darker brown, black, or smells burnt, seek professional service as soon as possible.
The experts at Ernie’s Auto Service can check your fluid and change it, if need be, according to the manufacturer’s recommended schedule, using the proper fluid for your particular vehicle. The cost for this service at Ernie’s Auto Service is approximately $150 for most foreign, domestic cars and light trucks. This includes complete change of transmission fluid, filter and gasket.
