Automatic transmissions create an extreme internal heat through friction. Much of this heat is developed in your vehicles torque converter. Some other sources of friction is created when the clutch packs are engage, and also typical friction created by your transmission gears and bearings carrying their loads.
Automatic transmission fluid (ATF) in your vehicle heats up quickly while driving. In normal driving conditions your transmission fluid temperatures average around 175 degrees, which is your normal operating temperature at which most transmission fluids are designed to operate. If your transmission fluid temperatures could maintain at 175 degrees, the transmission fluid may last up to 60,000 miles. The life of the transmission fluid begins to plummet as the temperature rises. The problem is even your vehicle normal driving conditions can push the ATF fluid temperatures beyond safe limits. Heavy towing, extreme cold or hot temperatures and even extended time sitting in traffic can quickly cause transmission fluid deterioration. Once this happens, the transmission trouble begins.
In this example below you will see four transmission fluid conditions:
New Fresh Transmission Fluid
Normal Transmission Fluid Condition
Burnt Transmission Fluid
Contaminated Transmission Fluid
If your ATF fluid appears to be any color other than “New Fresh color” or “Normal Condition color” you need to have your vehicle transmission serviced as soon as possible. Any further delay or continued use of burnt or contaminated transmission fluid will greatly shorten the life expectancy of your cars transmission and may lead to more costly repair or even complete failure of the transmission.
