Transmission Care

Transmissions are often neglected as they go unseen. It is important to follow the manufacturer recommendations on servicing your transmission to ensure a longer lifespan.

Things to look out for:

  • Have your vehicles transmission fluid checked regularly.
  • Be aware of noises, these are early warning signs.
  • Check the ground for leaks.
  • Check the ground for leaks.
  • Do not wait too long if your clutch begins to slip (both in a manual or automatic transmission).
  • Grinding noises are serious.
  • Be wary of cheap repair prices, patch artist just cause more problems.
  • Don't use high gear when in mountainous terrain. This causes excessive wear and tear.
  • Avoid repair pitfalls by knowing the facts.

  1. Inspect The Level And Condition Of Fluid

    Make sure you inspect the level and condition of your transmission fluid. This requires removing the oil fill plug from the transmission. Do not do this unless you are mechanically inclined. Often even oil change shops remove the wrong plug and cause serious damage. Look for a professional.

  2. Be Aware Of Any Unusual Noises

    To catch a problem with your transmission before it causes major damage, you should always be aware of any unusual behavior, noises or vibrations from your vehicle and have them checked right away.

  3. Inspect For Leaks

    Inspect beneath your car for leaks. The transmission fluid can be red or dark brown color. Leaks should be addressed quickly. Most warranties (both new and aftermarket) place the responsibility on the owner to maintain the fluid level at proper interval or the claim can be denied.

  4. Spot The Warning Signs

    If you experience any of the following contact Transmission specialist near you.
    • The engine sounds like it's running, but the vehicle doesn't move
    • You hear unusual noises when the vehicle shifts during acceleration
    • You've noticed a fluid under your vehicle
    • Standard transmission is noisy or hard to shift

  5. Worn Clutch Causes Shudder

    If your manual transmission shudders when you shift, if you really have to work to change gears, or if you hear noise, it's time to check it.

  6. Preventive Maintenance

    Your transmission's internal parts enemy is heat, friction and abuse. In fact, nearly nine out of ten transmission failures are due to overheating, fluid loss and normal wear and tear, simply metal on metal fatigue. Preventive maintenance every 60,000 miles, such as bearing overhaul, is the key to insuring a longer life span of your manual transmission.
