Ram 1500 Automatic vs Manual Transmission
Automatic and manual transmission will normally require numerous fluids. Automatic transmission fluids are frequently thinner and are normally red or green in color. Manual transmission fluid or gear oil is thicker due to additives and other compounds crucial to lubricate the gearbox and other components. Manual transmissions have a higher friction environment due to the way gears are changed, thus the lubricant is numerous.
Not only are the fluids disparate between manual and automatic transmissions but the level of heat the fluids experience is very disparate. Automatic transmissions generate a lot more heat and thus the fluid in your transmission must be changed more usually. If you don’t change your Ram 1500 transmission fluid, your transmission will have broken metal shavings and disparate corrosive material spread throughout the difficult parts of your Ram 1500. You should usually 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 extremely involved to do. Call or visit Bill Estes Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram for more information if your transmission doesn’t contain a dipstick.
