Preserving the Life of Your Transmission

Though you’ll likely never see your vehicle’s transmission, it’s still one of the most important components. Your transmission is responsible for transferring the power from your engine to your drive axle; in short, your vehicle won’t go without a functional transmission. For the sake of your safety and convenience, you’ve got to keep your transmission in good shape. If you suspect a serious issue with your transmission, contact your San Jose transmission repair shop. In the meantime, check out these suggestions for how to lengthen your transmission’s lifespan. transmission - fluid

Check Transmission Fluid

One of the most important things you can do is check your transmission fluid on a regular basis. Transmission fluid is responsible for lubricating the moving parts of your transmission, preventing them from grinding against each other and breaking. Generally speaking, it’s a good idea to check your transmission fluid once every 1,000 miles and get it changed once every 15,000 miles or so. If you notice a leak, an unusual smell, or a dark color, you may need to change it sooner.

Drive Safely

Obeying all traffic laws is important for a lot of reasons, including preserving your transmission. If you drive your vehicle too aggressively, it could have a negative impact on your transmission’s lifespan, requiring a rebuild or a replacement sooner than you’d want. Try slowing your rate of acceleration when driving, and always give a cold transmission a few minutes to heat up before you do some serious driving.

Keep Up with Maintenance

Checking and changing the transmission fluid isn’t the only type of maintenance that’s necessary for keeping your transmission in good shape. You should have your transmission checked out by an expert technician once every few years, or somewhere between 30,000 and 50,000 miles. During that time, some key components of your transmission may undergo some wear and tear and need to be replaced. Fortunately, a transmission rebuild makes it easy to replace old parts with new ones, giving your transmission a new lease on life.
