Types of transmissions

As one of the essential drivetrain components, a vehicle’s transmission is the master control of movement. You can think of it like a gearbox, with mechanisms rotating against each other to produce speed and torque.

Whether you have an automatic or manual transmission in your vehicle, one thing remains the same: It needs proper fluid care to function the way it’s designed to.

Automatic transmission

  • Keeping up on transmission fluid changes will maximize the life of this critical system
  • Delivering power from the engine to the wheels, the gears in an automatic transmission play a major role in the vehicle’s performance
  • As time goes by, the automatic transmission fluid degrades, making replacement essential
  • Fluid change intervals vary depending on use, but this recommendation is usually stated by number of years or kms in the manufacturer’s maintenance manual

Manual transmission

  • Protect your manual transmission from excess wear and tear and expensive repairs by maintaining its fluid
  • Jiffy Lube® ensures your gears, bearings, shafts and other internal components are getting the lubricant they need to perform at their best
  • Fluid change intervals vary depending on use, but this recommendation is usually stated by number of years or kms in the manufacturer’s maintenance manual

Transmission fluid change

With new, clean transmission fluid, the system stays lubricated, performs optimally and gains longevity. The fluid also cools and cleans internal components and maintains the proper hydraulic pressure needed for the system to work.

Just as an engine requires regular oil changes to perform at its best and stay in good condition, your vehicle’s transmission needs scheduled fluid changes.

Based on your vehicle’s recommended maintenance schedule, Jiffy Lube® can remove old and used fluid, replacing it with new transmission fluid that exceeds manufacturer specifications.
