Transmission Service: What Every Driver Should Know About ATF

Automatic transmission fluids (called “ATF” for short) have many performance-enhancing chemicals added to meet the demands of each vehicle. Make sure you understand the differences between the ATFs as you have transmission service work performed on your vehicle.

There are many specifications for ATF under various brand names that are approved by each vehicle manufacturer. Be sure to check your owner’s manual or your transmission service technician for the ATF specification(s) recommended by the manufacturer for your specific vehicle. Using the wrong ATF may result in transmission malfunction or severe damage, leading to a costly transmission repair.
