Acura Automatic vs Manual Transmission

Not only are the fluids definite between manual and automatic transmissions but the level of heat the fluids experience is exceedingly definite. Automatic transmissions generate a lot more heat and thus the fluid in your transmission must be changed more ordinarily. If you don't change your Acura transmission fluid, your transmission will have broken metal shavings and other corrosive material spread throughout the noteworthy elements of your Acura. You should ordinarily check the fluid levels between your fluid and transmission flush service intervals. In several cases, manual transmissions don't come equipped with a dipstick to check your fluid levels, so it can be highly difficult to do.
