Changing Expectations

You may already subscribe to the notion that regular engine oil and filter changes are essential to the longevity of your automobile's engine, but what about the other fluids in your vehicle? While it certainly isn't necessary to change the transmission fluid every 3,000-7,000 miles as it is with engine oil, the moving parts in this essential component could certainly use a healthy change of fluid at the prescribed interval. It isn't enough to just check the fluid levels from time to time. After all, would you rather pay for a fluid change occasionally or a new/rebuilt transmission? With this in mind, change the automatic transmission fluid/manual gearbox oil, brake fluid, coolant, and differential oil at intervals recommended by your technician.
