When it comes time to replace parts on your new or used car or do routine car maintenance, your car manufacturer knows best. It's always a good idea to check your owner's manual to see how often the manufacturer recommends certain parts should be replaced or when fluids (transmission and oil, primarily) should be changed.
*If your car is under warranty, the manufacturer may require a specific type or brand of fluid be used in the car to maintain the warranty.
