Most manufacturers recommend that transmission fluid be changed every 30,000 to 60,000 miles. Under heavy-duty use, some manufacturers suggest changing transmission fluid every 15,000 miles.
Because more heat is generated in an automatic transmission, automatic transmission fluid actually degrades and breaks down with use.
In addition, the transmission fluid will also become contaminated with worn bits of the transmission. If these contaminants are not drained out, they will shorten the life of your transmission.
What happens if I don't do this?
If you don't change the transmission fluid on schedule, you'll be lubricating your transmission with metal shavings and other contaminants. This will shorten the transmission's life.

Not only can a low fluid level cause your car to shift poorly, it can eventually lead to transmission damage.
