Learn about your Transmission

Why do you need to service your manual transmission?

Since several gears and shafts power your manual transmission, it is very important to keep these parts lubricated and clean. Over time, transmission fluid can be polluted with small pieces of metal that fall off the transmission gears or by water. It is important to have the transmission fluid changed, so these tiny particles aren’t traveling through the fluid and damaging your transmission’s shafts and gears.
