Prolong Your Transmissions Life

Taking care of your vehicle by properly servicing it can prevent a number of costly repairs and transmissions are no different. Below are a couple of basic tips to help ensure a longer transmission life.

  1. Service your transmission once a year, or every 12,000 to 15,000 miles.
  2. Check your transmission fluid to make sure it is full. Also make sure the transmission fluid looks healthy and does not have a burnt smell.
  3. Transmission fluid should never leak because it is a closed system, unlike oil. Have the leak fixed immediately, you do not want to drive it low on transmission fluid and cause wear on the gears or burn up your clutch.
  4. It is not recommended that you use transmission additives, most of them can cause more harm than good.
