Automatic transmission filters are a crucial part of your car’s transmission system. The fluid used within automatic transmission systems is responsible for gear lubrication as well as ensuring the correct operation of torque converters and brake band friction. Due to the large amount of responsibility that your automatic transmission fluid has, it’s important to make sure that it stays free of contaminants. That’s where your automatic transmission filter comes in. The filter itself works to ensure that contaminants from wearing parts don’t find their way into your transmission fluid, as this can cause wider problems with the whole system.
Transmission filters are typically made of a screen like material, and aren’t designed to last a lifetime. For this reason, it’s important to get yours changed at regular intervals. Warning signs of a blocked or damaged automatic transmission filter are whirring/whining when your car shifts into gear and potentially a burning smell from the system.
