Your Mazda contains many different fluids, and each one is important. The transmission fluid is one of the less frequently changed fluids, but it still plays a vital role in your vehicle's functioning. Mazda believes that Driving Matters, so when your Mazda needs a transmission fluid exchange, make sure to give it only the best with service at Cutter Mazda Honolulu.
Transmission fluid keeps all the moving parts of your vehicle's transmission lubricated. Automatic and manual transmissions often use different fluids, but they both perform the same key role. If you do drive a Mazda with an automatic transmission, the fluid will also transfer power to the transmission and serve as a transmission coolant.
As time goes by, the transmission fluid may become degraded. When this happens, it won't work as effectively as it used to, and the transmission could become damaged. This is the biggest concern for automatic transmissions. Manual transmissions have their own problems, as the transmission fluid runs the risk of contamination. Small pieces of metal from the transmission's moving parts may come loose and get into the fluid, which makes it less able to serve as an effective lubricant.
The owner's manual that came with your Mazda car or SUV will have a maintenance schedule that tells you how often to have certain services performed, including transmission fluid exchanges. It's generally best to follow this manual. However, if your transmission has been showing any signs of trouble, it might be best to have a transmission fluid change performed earlier.
