Protect your Transmission

 

As temperatures in Utah County start to trend downwards to below freezing, the last thing anyone wants to think about is their vehicle failing or costly repairs as they head into the holiday season. These below freezing temperatures can, however, cause major damage and unsafe driving conditions if your car transmission hasn’t been maintained or prepared. As most transmissions fail during winter months, J&M’s Transmission Shop in Lehi has put together some preventative tips to keep you from unplanned costly transmission repairs.

 

Let your car warm up before you drive. This will help the oil and transmission fluids warm up, move and lubricate parts, preventing unnecessary wear and tear. It only takes a few minutes and can reduce the chance of your transmission locking up while driving. 

 

Check your transmission fluid levels and oil levels regularly and make sure that you are using the correct oil for either manual or automatic transmission. 

 

A transmission fluid flush is recommended every 30,000 miles. 

 

Some warning signs of a problematic transmission include:

 

Slipping while shifting gears

 

Leaking fluids

 

Grinding and tear noises

 

Inability to switch gears

 

If you notice the transmission slipping or leaking, get it taken care of immediately and do not ignore the problem. It is much cheaper and safer to deal with small repairs than it is to replace a transmission or make major repairs. During these cold months, your vehicle will be overcompensating and working twice as hard. Make sure it is in the best condition possible to handle the extra strain and avoid bigger issues in the future.  

 

At J&M’s Transmission Clinic we offer free transmission diagnostics Lehi to ensure your car is ready for winter temperatures. If your transmission does seize up or other problems occur, we offer local free Utah County towing and shuttle service within our standard shuttle areas.
