How Long Does an Automatic Transmission Last For?
Guidelines for mileage and time vary between car makes and models. Drivers can also make a difference, depending on how aggressive they drive. A usual automatic transmission will last around 180,000km to 220,000km or roughly 7 years.
However, this is just a general rule and there will always be outliers – some automatic transmissions have early failure while others experience extreme longevity.
How Often Should I Service My Automatic Transmission?
Extend the lifespan of your automatic transmission with routine maintenance and servicing. You’ll want to refer to your owner’s manual specifications for exact service intervals. In general, it’s a good idea to have your transmission serviced every 12 months or every 20,000kms.
Given the complexity of automatic transmissions and the potential cost of repair, it makes sense to uncover any possible problems before they cause any serious damage. A regular automatic transmissions service will extend the life of your vehicle and will save you time and money in the long run.
What Are the Signs of a Slipping Transmission?
A slipping transmission is a tell-tale sign that your automatic transmission either needs to be serviced or repaired. Keep your eyes and ears open for the following signs:
- Unusually high RPM
- Delays in acceleration
- Unable to reverse the car
- Burnt or unusual smells
- Check engine light is on
- Shifting gears is more difficult than usual
- Shifting gears produces harsh noises
What Should I Do If My Automatic Transmission is Slipping During Acceleration?
We do not recommend driving a vehicle with a slipping transmission. If your vehicle unexpectedly starts switching gears while you are driving, this can quickly turn into a dangerous situation! When a transmission starts to slip, the vehicle can be unreliable and shaky to drive.
However, just because the gears of your transmission are slipping, it does not always mean that your transmission is failing. If you catch a shifting issue very early, a transmission oil change can sometimes fix shifting issues.
When in doubt, always consult a professional such as Automatic Transmissions R Us.
