The transmission works with the engine to provide power to your car's wheels. Whether automatic or manual, the transmission plays a major role in the overall performance of your car. Make sure to check it at the first sign of problems.
WHAT DOES IT DO?
A transmission/transaxle keeps the engine's output optimally matched to the speed and load conditions. The several different types of transmission fluid serve multiple purposes: cleans, cools, lubricates, transmits force, transmits pressure, inhibits varnish buildup and continually protects the transmission.
TYPICAL WEAR AND TEAR
Wear and tear on the transmission can be influenced by:
- Driving habits
- Towing or excessive loads
- Operating conditions
- Condition of the transmission fluid
- Frequency of regular maintenance
TRANSMISSION FLUID SERVICE/FLUSH
Recommended every 30,000 miles. The fluid is constantly working to keep your transmission lubricated and clean. Over time the fluid and filter (if equipped) gets dirty and needs to be changed. When was the last time your vehicle's transmission fluid and filter changed? Call (530) 621-4591 today to schedule an appointment or online at www.theautoanalyst.com.
