Everyone knows it’s important to change your oil every 5,000 or 6,000 miles, but few realize it’s just as important to perform preventative maintenance for your transmission. Just like changing the oil or replacing the brake pads, transmission service should be a standard part of preventative maintenance for your car or truck.
Transmission service for preventative maintenance is an investment that can add years to the life of your transmission, saving you money over the cost of transmission repair down the road.
Why is scheduling a regular transmission service for preventative maintenance important?
Your transmission endures a lot of heat and friction, and over time, tiny metal shavings can pollute the transmission fluid, lodging between moving parts and causing more heat, wear and tear on the transmission.
Replacing the transmission fluid clears out debris, which helps the transmission operate more smoothly by lubricating the moving parts, reducing slippage between gears, and keeping the friction to a minimum.
Perhaps most importantly, regular transmission maintenance can provide the opportunity for our experienced certified transmission technicians to detect “early warning” against more serious part failures. This allows you to make part repairs before a major transmission failure occurs—ultimately saving you the pain and expense of a full rebuild.
An easy-to-remember rule of thumb is to schedule transmission service every 30,000 miles or so, around the same time as a standard 30-60-90K maintenance. Beyond this preventative maintenance schedule suggestion, any time you notice signs of transmission trouble, it’s a good idea to bring your vehicle in for a transmission maintenance service, even if you haven’t reached the next mileage point.
Although you don’t need to schedule transmission service as often as an oil change, with regular transmission maintenance visits, not only will your car continue to shift gears smoothly, but our transmission specialists can identify and repair small transmission problems before they turn into big ones, possibly saving you thousands of dollars on a transmission rebuild.
We suggest you check transmission fluid levels regularly, as well as schedule transmission service with Quality Transmission to periodically change your transmission fluid and replace your transmission filter to minimize the risk of a vehicle breakdown due to transmission problems and to prolong the life of your transmission.
Having your engine serviced regularly will also decrease the chance of a failed transmission.
The primary task performed during a transmission service is a transmission fluid change. Our certified transmission technician will also replace your transmission filter, examine and clean the transmission pan, install a new pan gasket, and in some cases add a friction modifier additive to the new transmission fluid.
Our transmission experts will also check other parts of your drive train for signs of damage, such as the clutch, driveline and CV boots.
If any potential transmission problems are identified, we will provide you with an estimate and a full explanation before beginning any necessary repairs.
Of course you want your transmission to last as long as possible, and scheduling regular transmission service is a great way to keep your transmission healthy for as long as possible.
