Hyundai Transmission Fluid Exchange Service

Transmission Fluid Exchange with Hyundai of Del Rio

How often do you check your Hyundai transmission fluid and change it out? If you're like many drivers, there's a good chance you don't do so regularly, or perhaps this is the first you've heard about transmission fluid levels. The truth is that transmission fluid eventually gets old and can become riddled with debris, which can cause serious damage to your transmission if left unchecked. Fortunately, you don't need a full transmission flush every time - a Hyundai transmission fluid exchange can be easier on your wallet as well as your car. Here's what you need to know.

How a Transmission Fluid Exchange Works

A Hyundai transmission fluid exchange is a form of preventative maintenance that involves replacing only a portion of the old transmission fluid with new fluid. It can be performed much faster than a full transmission flush and change out, which is often done more to fix an actual problem with your transmission (sometimes the problem is with the fluid itself while other times it is flushed so the mechanic can work more easily on the transmission itself). A full flush also entails forcing cleaning chemicals through the system to clear out any lingering build-up and debris, which sounds nice but can actually cause some unnecessary wear and tear, so it should only be done if your transmission actually needs it.

When You Should Get a Transmission Fluid Exchange?

It's a good idea to have your Hyundai transmission fluid checked about every six months. If issues are noticed - clouding or darkening, debris, low levels, etc. - then a Hyundai transmission fluid exchange should be performed (if the problem appears to be getting worse over time, then a full flush and change out may be recommended). Regardless, regular transmission fluid exchanges as preventative maintenance should be done about every 30,000 to 50,000 miles.
