How To Check Your Transmission Fluid

Transmission Fluid

Transmission fluid plays an essential role in keeping your engine healthy. The fluid lubricates components in your engine that improve fuel efficiency. If your transmission fluid is low or dirty, your engine won’t work correctly. At Land Rover Chandler, we want to prevent you from having costly engine issues. Below is a step-by-step guide on how to check your transmission fluid levels.

Checking Transmission Fluid Levels

It is simple to check the transmission fluid levels on your vehicle. When you know how to check transmission fluid levels, you can do it regularly. Whether you are commuting to work or home in Tempe, we want you to drive safely.

  1. Please turn on your vehicle and let it heat up before checking the levels.
  2. Locate the transmission fluid dipstick. On front-wheel-drive vehicles, you can find it to the right of the oil dipstick. If you cannot find it, refer to your owner’s manual.
  3. Remove a dab of the transmission fluid and rub the oil between your fingers. Healthy transmission fluid will almost look clear or have a pink tint. If the liquid smells burnt or looks dirty, the fluid will need replacing. You can change the fluid yourself, or schedule a service appointment with our helpful team at Land Rover Chandler.
  4. Wipe off the dipstick with a clean rag and place it back into the vehicle. Take the dipstick out again, and if the level is below “full” marking, you will need to add more fluid.
  5. You can use a funnel to help steady the flow, but be careful not to overfill.

How Often Do You Check Your Transmission Fluid?

How often do you check your transmission fluid? If your answer is monthly, then you’re already doing great. When you perform this regular task, you should check in on your engine oil and steering fluid too. To keep up with all of your vehicle’s monthly maintenance, you should check your owner’s manual.
