• How to Care for a Transmission

    Many transmission issues are preventable by staying on top of maintenance and practicing smart driving habits. Timely transmission fluid replenishment, transmission filter changes, cooling system service (which helps maintain the transmission fluid’s temperature), and regular inspection all contribute to a healthy running system.

    On the flip side, a transmission repair can also result from subpar driving habits and environmental factors. For example, rough road and weather conditions and continuous stop-and-go traffic can negatively affect a transmission’s performance. In terms of driving habits, high speeds, heavy towing, engine revving, gear grinding, and “riding the clutch” are common missteps drivers often take while behind the wheel.
