This is a common question that many vehicle owners ask. Unless they are experiencing problems, transmission are generally “out of sight, out of mind.” What is the purpose of transmission fluid? Transmission fluid is a lubricant for all of the moving parts inside your transmission. Letting your car run low can cause the transmission to shift improperly—or not at all. It also can harm the internal parts of your transmission because they are not being properly lubricated. Unfortunately, you may not hear any noises or have other clues that your transmission is low on fluid until it's too late.
