What Point Does Transmission Fluid Freeze?

As cold weather sweeps across the country, there’s a good chance you’ll either be living with it or driving through it at some point. At Citrus Transmission & Auto in Homosassa, FL, we like to provide answers to the controversial questions that nobody is asking; for example, at what point will your transmission fluid freeze?

In short, basically never. There is a point where it becomes so cold it is too thick for the pump to move the fluid – but that point is at about -90 degrees. For the average driver in North America, this will never (hopefully) be a problem.


However, some people do experience issues getting the transmission to shift into gear when they put the car in drive. At around 0 degrees, it’s not uncommon for the viscosity of the fluid to become thick enough that the transmission has trouble pushing it through tiny holes and passageways. If you notice this issue, the solution is pretty simple; just let your car, truck, or SUV warm up a bit, and before long your fluid will be flowing like normal.


No matter your repair or maintenance needs, we’ve got you covered. For the best transmission service shop in Homosassa, FL, call or stop by Citrus Transmission & Auto today.
