Chevy Silverado 1500 Automatic vs Manual Transmission

Automatic and manual transmission will usually require a variety of different fluids. Automatic transmission fluids are usually thinner and are usually red or green in color. Manual transmission fluid or gear oil is more stout and thicker due to additives and other important compounds necessary to lubricate the gearbox and other parts. Manual transmissions have a higher friction environment due to the way gears are changed, thus the lubricant is exceedingly different.

Not only are the fluids different between manual and automatic transmissions but the level of heat the fluids experience is exceptionally different. Automatic transmissions generate ample heat and thus the fluid in your transmission must be changed more frequently. If you don't change your Chevy Silverado 1500 transmission fluid, your transmission will have unpredictable broken metal shavings and other corrosive material spread throughout the critical parts of your Chevy Silverado 1500. You should frequently check the fluid levels between your fluid and transmission flush service intervals. In many cases, manual transmissions don't come equipped with a dipstick to check your fluid levels, so it can be immensely difficult to do. Call or visit Bill Estes Chevy Indianapolis for more details if your transmission doesn't contain a dipstick.
