Transmission fluid and filter replacement in automatic transmission

Automatic transmission is the second most expensive and technologically advanced element of the car next to the engine. You should remember to remove the used fluid from it and replace it with a new one of appropriate parameters. Neglecting or postponing an automatic transmission fluid and filter change may result in serious consequences and costly repairs. Changing an automatic transmission fluid requires special conditions and tools, hence the best thing to do is to have it done during comprehensive check-ups as recommended by the manufacturer.
