Common Auto Services at Carlsen Subaru: Transmission Maintenance

Schedule a transmission maintenance online at Carlsen Subaru

The transmission is one of the most sophisticated components of every new Subaru. Whether it's a manual transmission, an automatic or a CVT, these gearboxes experience tremendous stress and are responsible for delivering engine power efficiently to the wheels. While they're built to last a long time, they'll get maximum longevity with regular, preventative maintenance. This means following the owner's manual for routine maintenance like transmission fluid changes and system flushes. We can help you do it at Carlsen Subaru!

What are the Risks of Not Having my Transmission Regularly Serviced?

With an automatic transmission, going too long without changing the transmission fluid can put you in a bind. Over time, metal shavings will flake off the gears and other components in the transmission, and collect in the transmission fluid. Dirty transmission fluid full of these metal shavings can help the worn-down gears to operate properly. However, if enough metal shavings are present in the fluid, and the system is drained, flushed and refilled with clean transmission fluid, the gears may no longer be able to function properly without the aid of the dirty transmission fluid! That means, just by replacing the transmission fluid at the wrong time, you may end up needing a totally rebuilt automatic transmission. This is just one way in which the transmission is a sophisticated, delicate system. Let the experts at Carlsen Subaru handle the maintenance of your Subaru, so we can keep it running like new for years to come and help you avoid expensive repair bills down the road.

How Often should I have my Transmission Serviced or Inspected?

Consult your owner's manual to find the service intervals for all your vehicle's parts and fluids. For example, according to Subaru, every 2017 Subaru with an automatic transmission should have the transmission fluid changed every 60,000 miles. Stick-shift Subie drivers should have the clutch fluid replaced every 30,000 miles in their manual transmission. And if your Subaru has a CVT transmission, it should be inspected every 30,000 miles to ensure the transmission oil and CVT belt are both in good shape.
