What Maintenance Does My Transmission Need?

Still rowing your own gears? A manual transmission doesn't need much maintenance. Over time, the clutch disc may wear out and you'll need to have a new one installed. You'll also need new transmission oil every so often.

In an automatic transmission, you'll need even less preventative maintenance. All it should take is the occasional transmission flush and fill with fresh automatic transmission fluid. If your car has a transmission dipstick, it's also a good idea to check the transmission fluid level periodically. Running with too little fluid in the transmission is likely to cause damage!

A CVT transmission doesn't need any maintenance, but it does need to be regularly inspected by a dealership professional. This is so they can catch potential problems with the transmission pulleys or belt, and replace the CVT oil as it becomes contaminated.

How Often Should I Flush the Transmission?

Manual transmission fluid should be drained and refilled every 30,000-60,000 miles. An automatic transmission may not need a fluid flush for 100,000 miles or more! Some new transmissions are even filled with "lifetime" fluid that don't need any maintenance at all -- but even so, it's a good idea to have a technician check the fluid every year or so to make sure your transmission is in good shape. With a CVT transmission Subaru recommends having it inspected by an authorized Subaru dealership service center every 30,000 miles.
