What Is Transmission Fluid?
The transmission in your Volkswagen transfers power from the engine to the wheels. There are moving parts within the transmission that could create friction. Whether you have a manual or an automatic transmission, the transmission fluid's role is to lubricate these parts to keep them from becoming damaged. If your VW is equipped with an automatic transmission, the fluid also helps keep the transmission cooler. This is because automatic transmissions tend to generate more heat than manual transmissions. Automatic transmission fluid also helps transfer power from the engine to the transmission.

Why Does My VW Need a Transmission Fluid Exchange?
As time goes by, your VW's transmission fluid may become less effective at lubricating the various parts of the transmission. This could be due to one of two main causes: contamination and degradation. Contamination happens when tiny metal particles get loose in the fluid; not only does this decrease its abilities as a lubricant, but it can shorten the lifespan of your transmission. Degradation happens when the fluid naturally breaks down over time. Either way, going too long without a transmission fluid exchange can damage your transmission. Getting a fluid exchange is much cheaper than getting a new transmission, so don't put this service off!
