What is automatic oil?
Automatic oil is also referred to as automatic transmission fluid or ATF. It is used in automatic transmission vehicles. The oil is usually green or grey in colour making it easier to distinguish between other fluids like motor oil. ATF is optimized to meet the unique requirements of most automatic transmission vehicles. However, there are various types of ATF and so you need to buy the right one for your vehicle based on the vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations.
When should automatic transmission oil be added?
Automatic fluid needs to be changed after a certain number of miles on the vehicle. However, if there is a leak the level of fluid will gradually decline. While topping it up to run the car temporarily works in some cases that’s not a long-term solution. Many of the latest vehicles have sensors that alert drivers of low ATF levels at which point they need to be topped up. Generally speaking, automatic oil needs to be replaced every 2000 kilometres. However, it’s always a good idea to refer to the vehicle’s user manual to find out the right interval period. Changing the oil in time will ensure that your car continues to perform optimally for years to come.
