How Many Miles Does the Average Automatic Transmission Last?

Did you know that your transmission is built to last at least 100,000 miles? In fact, that is the average lifespan of an automatic transmission. However, you can make your transmission last much longer than this by giving it routine care and maintenance. Here is how you can lengthen the life of your automatic transmission.

Check fluids regularly.

You should be checking all of your fluids regularly, not just the oil. When you check your transmission fluid, look at more than just the level. What color is the fluid? Is it clear or murky? Does it look very dark, like it has been burnt? If you notice any abnormalities, even if you’re not sure, you should have your car checked by a mechanic.

Get transmission service according to your make and model.

Your make and model vehicle will have recommendations about when to have your transmission serviced. Usually, transmission service includes a transmission fluid and filter change, although other issues may be found that need to be addressed. Your mechanic should be able to give you a clear idea of what you need and shouldn’t do any work without approval.

Maintain other systems.

Other systems in your vehicle can impact the health of your transmission. For example, if your cooling system isn’t working properly, your car could overheat, which is very hard on a transmission.
