Lexus LS 460 Automatic vs Manual Transmission

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

Not only are the fluids distinctive between manual and automatic transmissions but the level of heat the fluids experience is very distinctive. Automatic transmissions generate a few more heat and thus the fluid in your transmission must be changed more consistently. If you don't change your Lexus LS 460 transmission fluid, your transmission will have broken metal shavings and diverse corrosive material spread throughout the positive components of your Lexus LS 460. You should consistently 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 Plaza Lexus for more information if your transmission doesn't contain a dipstick.
