Keep your Transmission Running Longer

Transmissions aren't complicated things, but they do require attention in order to keep things running smoothly. Often times, we neglect to take care of our transmission needs. This often damages or affects the transmission's performance. Being conscious of these five things, we can have an assurance that our transmissions will run longer and more efficiently. Always service your transmission Bring in your vehicle at 50,000 miles or so for servicing. Most manufacturers suggest that you service your transmission at 100,000 miles. This makes it seem as if it costs half as much to service at 100,000 miles compared to 50,000. However, at 100,000 miles, your vehicle is more at risk of transmission problems, possibly forcing expensive repairs or replacements. Keep your transmission fluid full Transmission fluid is used to keep the transmission running smoothly. If there isn't a sufficient amount of quality fluid in there, then the transmission won't be as protected from damage as it could be. Use the correct transmission fluid Choosing the right type and quality of transmission fluid for your transmission will keep it working well. If you use synthetic transmission fluid on an older model that has never been exposed to synthetic transmission fluid, then it could hurt the transmission more than help it. So make sure that you know which type and quality of fluid to use. Don?t let problems linger The longer you let problems stick around, the worse they'll get. If the transmission doesn't work as good as it can, then the problems will create a snowball effect, worsening the problems. Make frequent checks and fix any problems before they become a serious issue. Don't let your transmission overheat Out of these 5 tips, this one is the most likely reason your transmission would fail you. If your transmission is having problems, overheating is probably the root of the problem. To solve this, make sure to follow the above instructions, because low fluid levels, leaks, or old transmission fluid can all cause your transmission to overheat. If your vehicle is towing heavy loads, constantly stopping and going, or operating in hot weather, then consider installing a transmission cooler to keep your transmission fluid from getting too hot. The transmission is a crucial part in your car, increasing the output speed of the engine. It's because of this that replacing a transmission is a pricey repair, so it's important to keep it running for as long as possible. By following these steps, you can make sure that your transmission gets in more than 100,000 miles, all the while saving money. So make the most out of your transmission, and keep it running smooth.
