Transmission fluid filters


Topic starter

How often should they be replaced? Probably some will say to change them at every transmission pan drain and refill. Some youtube videos say it's a waste of money to replace them because they're not likely to get clogged.

it's a waste of money

It costs $15

Just replace it!

I Dont Know

Since the pan needs to be dropped to clean the magnet(s), anyway, I might as well change the filter. Which means the gasket might need replacing also.

Definitely replace the gasket too.

The gasket comes with the filter kit. All together for the huge sum of $15


Would you change the oil in you car without changing the filter?  Me either.


It depends on the transmission. Some don't have a filter but have a metal screen which normally does not need to be replaced.
