Automatic and manual transmission will naturally require divergent fluids. Automatic transmission fluids are often thinner and are naturally red or green in color. Manual transmission fluid or gear oil is thicker due to additives and extra compounds imperative to lubricate the gearbox and extra components. Manual transmissions have a higher friction environment due to the way gears are changed, thus the lubricant is divergent.

Automatic transmissions generate a lot more heat and thus the fluid in your transmission must be changed more commonly. If you don't change your 2012 Mercedes-Benz GLS 450 transmission fluid, your transmission will have broken metal shavings and other corrosive material spread throughout the helpful components of your 2012 Mercedes-Benz GLS 450. You should commonly 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 extraordinarily difficult to do. Call or visit Plaza Motor Company for more information if your transmission doesn't contain a dipstick.
