Whether you're working on your daily vehicle or restoring an old classic as a hobby, automatic transmission components
are a must. Every vehicle, whether it's your car, a sports ride or a work truck, has a unique drivetrain layout and not all
use the same parts or sizes. At Advance Auto Parts, we carry a large array of automatic transmission components, and
you're sure to find the right parts for your vehicle.
The transmission is what keeps your car moving, delivering
power from the engine to the drive wheels. To keep your vehicleshifting smoothly, it's necessary to check and replace
automatic transmission filters and fluid regularly. Transmission fluid is usually dyed red (or sometimes green), to
differentiate it from other automotive fluids.
The filter traps metal fragments, sludge and other particles that
can plug internal passages and restrict flow of fluid, causing serious transmission damage. If you're changing these components
yourself, you'll need a transmission filter kit to act as a second set of hands and ensure your gasket stays in place
while you change the filter and fluid. Unless you use your vehicle for a lot of towing or hauling heavy loads, you should
change these components once every two years, or 24,000 miles. Manufacturer’s recommended service intervals can vary; consult
your owner’s manual to be sure.
Over time, as your vehicle ages, seals and gaskets can dry out and shrink, causing
leaks. We carry a variety of oil drain plugs, gaskets, O-rings, auto transmission drain plugs and transmission fluid filters
for most vehicles to head off leaks an dpotential problems.
