How often do I have to change transmission oil

My car has 179819 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Most automatic transmissions call for a 60,000 mile service interval. Every 4 years or 60,000 miles is a good rule of thumb. If you’d like this done, a qualified pro from YourMechanic can come to your home or office for a transmission fluid service.
