The automatic transmission fluid and filter help lubricate, cool and clean internal components of the transmission. They also help maintain the hydraulic pressure necessary for the transmission to function properly. If your vehicle doesn’t engage smoothly and promptly when you put it in drive, it may be time to get an automatic transmission service by a highly trained technician at Jiffy Lube®. Replacing your transmission fluid and filter according to your vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations helps preserve the life of the transmission and helps maintain your vehicle warranty.
Jiffy Lube offers three Automatic Transmission Services. Your Jiffy Lube technician can help you determine which if any is necessary for your vehicle based on your vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations.
If changing the transmission fluid is the only service called for, Jiffy Lube® technicians will remove the transmission fill/drain plug, drain the old automatic transmission fluid, reinstall the fill/drain plug and refill the transmission with new automatic transmission fluid to the proper level.
If changing the transmission filter and fluid is called for, Jiffy Lube® technicians will remove the transmission pan, remove the old transmission filter and replace it with a new transmission filter. In the process they will remove the old gasket material, replace the pan gasket with a new gasket and reinstall the pan, then refill the transmission with new automatic transmission fluid to the proper level.
In this service, Jiffy Lube® technicians will replace your automatic transmission filter and fluid (see above) plus any other fluids in the transmission system, including the torque converter and transmission cooler.
Vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations for automatic transmission fluid and filter replacement vary. Ask your Jiffy Lube® Service Advisor about your vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations.
