At Star Mazda of Glendale, our Mazda parts team understands the value of a well-function transmission and will provide you with the services you need to keep things running smoothly.

What is your transmission? Well, the transmission is a crucial component of your engine and without it, you’ll likely find your car inoperable on the side of the road. Why is the transmission so important? Well, it is a component responsible for changing your gears and helps the engine transfer power to the wheels, getting you moving where you need to go. Unfortunately, no transmission lasts forever, and on average this component has a lifespan of around 100,000 miles.

While that may sound grim, you don’t have to settle for this 100,000-mile limit. You can prolong the lifespan of your transmission by receiving regular inspections and having your transmission fluid inspected and swapped when necessary. Your transmission fluid is a lubricant used to fight excess heat in your wheels, which is the main factor damaging your transmission. So, when should you change out your transmission fluid? Well, while the exact timeline varies between vehicles, many auto experts suggest that you have it inspected on a regular basis, and changed as needed.

If you’re hoping to prolong the lifespan of your transmission, we’ve got you covered at Star Mazda. Not only do we offer a variety of Mazda service specials, but we are also home to a team of maintenance experts who will go above and beyond to keep every component of your engine running smoothly.
