Do you own a Dodge Ram? Well if you do, then you know every 51,000 miles you need to perform a transmission fluid exchange, right? If your truck is worked hard, then you need to flush your transmission fluid more often.
Why do I have to do this?
Manual Transmission : In a manual transmission, the problem is not so much the breaking down of the fluid , but rather the contamination of the fluid . The contamination occurs over time as the bearings and gears in the transmission wear. Metal particles will begin to collect in the lubricant. If these contaminants are not drained out, they will overtime damage your transmission.
Automatic Transmission: Heat is generated in an automatic transmission. The fluid in an automatic transmission actually degrades and breaks down with use. An automatic transmission’s fluid will become contaminated with metal particles do to the friction of the grinding gears and bearings. The purpose of your fluid is to lubricate the internal bearings and gears to keep them from grinding together. If these contaminants are not drained out, they will damage your transmission by creating issues with your gears and bearings.
What happens if I don’t do this?
Over time, the metal shavings in your fluid will continue to increase causing damage to the mechanical parts inside your transmission. Your transmission will at that point fail to work properly.
