 Kia Transmission Fluid Exchange Service

Transmission Fluid Exchange at LaFontaine Kia

If you begin to recognize problems with your transmission, bring it in to have a certified technician look at it. This may indicate that it needs a transmission fluid exchange. It’s a simple process that will extend the life of your Kia. At LaFontaine Kia, our team will quickly get it taken care of. While our service center is in Ypsilanti, MI, we also serve the communities of Dexter, and Saline, MI.

Getting a Transmission Fluid Exchange

A fluid exchange simply means draining off old fluid and replacing it with clean fluid. While this sounds simple, it needs to be handled by a professional because the process is done under pressure. The increased pressure removes any buildup that may be causing problems. As a regularly scheduled maintenance task, this will greatly enhance your Kia’s performance.




Changing the Transmission Fluid

While the transmission fluid doesn’t need to be changed often, it is part of your vehicle’s maintenance schedule. The owner’s manual will outline how often this needs to be done. Indications such as grinding noise or accelerator hesitation should be checked. This can indicate that the transmission fluid is low. Some automakers suggested getting a fluid exchange every 30,000 miles. Others recommend it at 60-100,000 miles. The owner’s manual will let you know what is best for your model and year. When the fluid is clean, the transmission is lubricated. This helps maintain even engine temperature. Continuing to operate a vehicle with a dirty fluid can damage the transmission requiring it to need rebuilding or replacement. In the end, this would be a costly repair. Comparing the time and expense of maintenance versus repair, it’s better to get service when it is called for.

LaFontaine Kia Service Center

At our Ypsilanti, MI Service Center, our technicians work hard to get your transmission fluid exchange done quickly and correctly. Using an inexperienced mechanic can leade to damaged transmission seals. Furthermore, our technicians use Kia equipment and parts and complete work according to the manufacturer’s standards. A local mechanic won’t have this specialized equipment or the need to adhere to Kia’s exacting standards for transmission repairs or maintenance. The transmission is a driving force in a vehicle’s engine so don’t risk it with sub-standard work. Our team will get your Kia back into great shape while getting it the service it needs. Regular maintenance is key to a long-lasting Kia. Come experience the difference that certified maintenance and service can make!
