Change the fluid in the transmission every 30,000 miles, depending on the type of car you have. Check the owner's manual for more information. Change the filter if your car has one. Change the coolant every 30,000 miles or every three years with conventional antifreeze. With extended-life antifreeze, change it every 150,000 miles or every five years.
