In automatic transmissions/transaxles, the recommended service interval is about every 30,000 miles or 30 months. ( Check your owner’s manual or service manual for your car’s specifics.) The automatic transmission fluid ( ATF ) should be changed sooner if its dipstick reveals dark or burnt-smelling fluid .
Pull out the dipstick, wipe it clean, replace it slowly, and then pull it back out. Check the fluid level—how high the fluid comes up on the dipstick—against the “full” and “low” or “fill” marks on the dipstick.
