Automatic Transmission Service

An automatic transmission filter helps prevent harmful contaminants from entering the hydraulic system, where they can increase wear and cause scoring and sticking of hydraulic control valves. Additionally, if a major part fails inside the transmission, the filter may prevent pieces of that part from contributing to a more catastrophic transmission failure.

Generally, the automatic transmission filter and fluid should be changed periodically according to the intervals suggested in your owners’ manual. A good rule of thumb is two years or every 24,000 miles. At Midas, we offer a complete service that will maintain a healthy automatic transmission system.
