Automatic transmission fluid (ATF) in a 2018 Chevrolet Captiva plays a critical role in ensuring smooth and efficient operation of the transmission system. It lubricates the transmission components, helps in cooling, and facilitates the transfer of power from the engine to the wheels.

It's crucial to use the recommended ATF type specified in the Chevrolet Captiva 1-st generation owner's manual or service manual. Using the wrong type of ATF can lead to transmission issues and potentially damage the transmission system.

Checking and maintaining the ATF level is essential for proper transmission function. Captiva owners should periodically check the ATF level using the dipstick or the vehicle's onboard system if equipped. If the ATF level is low, it should be topped up to the recommended level using the correct ATF type.

Regular ATF changes are also necessary to keep the transmission in good condition. The recommended ATF change intervals can vary based on driving conditions, mileage, and other factors. Captiva owners should follow the maintenance schedule outlined in the owner's manual or service manual for the appropriate ATF change intervals. Owners should adhere to the manufacturer's recommendations regarding ATF type, level checks, and change intervals to avoid potential transmission problems.
