In today’s crazy life styles, 90% of people often forget about transmission servicing, getting a transmission flush, or even checking for transmission leaks under their vehicle. Servicing the transmission every 20 – 30,000 miles is very important to proper operation and the life of the transmission. Just like the oil in your cars engine, transmission fluid suffers from heat, friction and electrochemical degradation. Once this process starts, your transmission’s vital parts begin to clog with sludge and varnish deposits.
Most of us know that our motor oil needs to be changed every 3000 miles, but what most people do not know is that the transmission has more internal moving parts than our vehicle’s engine. The transmission also has internal rubber parts that are critical to proper transmisison operation. Because of all the different elements inside a transmission, it is very important to check the fluid levels of your transmission fluid and have the transmission fluid flushed / changed routinely.
Avoid Overheating and Shifting Problems
In order to keep your transmission operating properly, you need to keep your transmission serviced! 9 out of 10 transmissions fail today simply due to overheating. Overheating can be avoided by flushing the transmisison fluid and replacing it. This will easily keep the fluid clean and keep the transmission fluid temperature down to avoid overheating. Keeping your transmission fluid clean will cause a 10% heat reduction that can easily double the transmission life.
Changing the fluids regurally also allow the transmission to shift smoothly and correctly. Changing the filter is also part of a transmission service that helps allow your transmission to shift properly. By changing the filter, your vehicle will be able to properly continue to filter the oil, keeping the transmission fluid clean.
