The transmission filter is designed to filter the clutch and band particles that are suspended within your transmissions fluid. Your transmission filter removes these particles from the transmission oil to prevent these particles from clogging the valve body. The clutches and bands are made of very thin material designed to operate in the transmission fluid. The transmission shifts by changing fluid routes through the valve body. The transmission valve body has many small valves with tight clearances. Clean transmission fluid supplied by your transmission filter is vital for proper operation.
Transmission Filter Replacement
Most vehicle manufacturers recommend that you change the transmission filter and fluid every 30,000 miles or every two years.When changing your transmission filter, you'll change the transmission fluid and transmission pan gasket as well. Replacing these items is very easy and can be completed in about an hour.
What you will need to replace your transmission filter:
- A new transmission pan gasket
- A new transmission fluid filter
- Transmission fluid recommended by vehicle manufacturer
Replacing your transmission fluid and filter will help extend the service life of your transmission. Vehicle use plays a major role in determining your service interval. Towing heavy trailers will require a shorter change interval.
