My car has an automatic transmission.

You should only service your transmission with Mercon LV fluid and only do so when your owners manual states it should be replaced. For some newer transmissions service is not recommended but if it is needed then correct the fluid or damage may occur.

If you discover that your transmission fluid needs to be serviced in the future, consider YourMechanic, as a certified technician can come to your home or office to do the job. Good luck.
