No one ever wants to hear that they need an automotive repair, let alone a transmission repair. Depending on the make and model of your car, a transmission rebuild can be very costly. However, there are several steps you can take to prevent transmission problems. Did you know that over 80% of car owners neglect their transmission? Its true! Let us help you start the new year off right by taking care of the most important component in your car — the transmission.
3 Ways You Can Keep Your Transmission in Top Shape
1) Do Not Drive Wrecklessly
This is not only beneficial to your transmission but also to you the drive and others around you! Do not drive wrecklessly by shifting in and out of gear quickly or failing to shift at the proper time. Doing so will result in transmission problems. These type of transmission problems are very easy to diagnose and quickly show “driving abuse” as the cause.
2) Check Your Transmission Fluid
Most do not know that your transmission fluid needs to be checked as often as you check your vehicle’s engine oil. The transmission fluid is very important as it keeps all the parts inside your transmission lubed and ready to work! If your transmission runs out of oil, this will easily and quickly damage the inside components to the transmission. If the transmission fluid is not changed properly, the poor discolored transmission fluid can cause problems in shifting gears or cause extreme damage resulting in the need for a transmission rebuild.
3) Have Your Vehicle Checked
If you have a noise inside your vehicle, your car is not shifting properly, or you think that something may be wrong, its time to bring the car in to be looked at. Do not avoid having your vehicle diagnosed! In most cases, a small transmission problem can be fixed quickly and inexpensively. However, if you avoid a small transmission problem, it can quickly grow into the need for a complete transmission rebuild.
