Time to Change your Transmission Filter?

Your vehicle’s transmission filter is a critical component of your vehicle as it keeps dirt, debris and contaminants out of transmission fluid and the entire transmission system. It is widely recommended by manufacturers that you change a transmission filter every 30,000 miles or every 2 years.


Signs your Vehicle is Overdue for a Transmission Filter Change:

  • Grinding or Difficulty Changing Gears: If your vehicle is not shifting gears smoothly or a grinding sound is present, it is a sign that your transmission is struggling and could need a transmission filter replacement.

  • Rattling Noise: Any unexplained noise in your vehicle is worth paying attention to, especially if you believe it is coming from the transmission. A transmission filter that is full of debris could create a rattling noise.

  • Contaminated Transmission Fluid: Transmission fluid that has been contaminated with dirt and debris is a sure sign that the transmission filter has failed. Dirty transmission fluid is a serious concern as it can burn, resulting in costly transmission repairs.

  • Leaking Transmission Fluid: A filter that has slipped or isn’t in place could result in leakage. Leaking transmission fluids is something to always look into and take care of as quickly as possible to avoid further costly damage.

  • Burning Smell and Smoke: A blocked transmission filter will cause a burning smell and can result in engine smoke.


The transmission filter is located in a difficult to reach region of your vehicle, it is a messy and time consuming job that often requires specialized tools. Hiring a professional Utah transmission repair technician will ensure that your vehicle’s transmission will receive only the highest quality service.
