Don’t be afraid of oil changes! MEYLE advises on changing the oil in automatic gearboxes.
‘Automatic transmissions? They don’t need an oil change!’ Though debunked long ago, this rumour has proven quite persistent. Transmission oil undergoes a natural ageing process, with the oil wearing out and additives diminishing over time. So it’s all the more important to change the oil: this prevents damage to the transmission and maintains transmission function and driving comfort. Yet people still shy away. They shouldn’t! Based in Hamburg, spare parts manufacturer MEYLE offers over 60 oil change kits, which come with all the components required for an oil change: filters, seals, screws, drain/intake plugs, magnets and the amount of transmission oil the application calls for. This reduces stress and saves money – for workshops and drivers alike. Now, MEYLE’s advice makes changing the oil even easier.
