What Is Transmission Fluid?

In both automatic and manual transmissions, the transmission fluid serves to lubricate the moving parts of the transmission, keeping them from being harmed. But transmission fluid has an additional role in automatic transmissions (including continuously variable transmissions, or CVTs). These transmissions get much hotter than manual transmissions, so the transmission fluid serves as a coolant, keeping the transmission itself from overheating.

Why Does My Subaru Need a Transmission Fluid Exchange?

Over time, the transmission fluid becomes less effective at what it does. Generally, vehicles with manual transmission will have to deal with contamination, where tiny particles of rubber and metal get loose in the fluid, reducing its cooling abilities. Automatic transmissions have to deal with an additional potential issue. The heat from the transmission degrades the fluid. Both of these cause your transmission to be improperly lubricated, shortening its lifespan and potentially destroying it.

How Often Does My Subaru Need a Transmission Fluid Exchange?

At Cityside Subaru, we recommend getting the transmission fluid in your Subaru changed somewhere around every 50,000 miles to every 70,000 miles. Your Subaru owner's manual will have more specific mileage intervals, as well. When you visit us for this service, our technicians will drain the old fluid, replacing it with Subaru factory approved transmission fluid. They will also inspect the transmission housing, seals, and cooler lines, checking for transmission fluid leaks. To top it off, our technicians will perform a complimentary multi-point inspection.
