Smoother shifting and longer transmission life start with changing your automatic transmission filter
Fluids are the lifeblood of your vehicle, and whether it is oil, fuel or transmission fluid, the cleaner they remain, the better for the long-term health of your vehicle. Whilst fitting a replacement automatic transmission filter isn't done as frequently as an oil filter change, your auto trans filter still becomes clogged and inefficient over time. Maintaining the servicing of your automatic transmission and replacing your automatic transmission filter is your best defence to keeping your automatic transmission operating efficiently for trouble-free motoring. At Repco, we stock a wide range of transmission filter brands from Ryco, Meyle, Drivetech and ATP.
