Car Care Tips
Transmission fluids have a number of unique properties that can wear out over time. And when they wear out, you can bet the transmission itself won’t be far behind.
Check the Fluid Levels
The fluid in an automatic transmission operates the clutches, provides cooling and lubrication, and even drives the vehicle. Maintaining proper fluids is key to keeping your car running without issues.
Service the Cooling System
You may not realize it, but your car’s cooling system does more than keep the engine running cool. A faulty cooling system cannot only damage your engine; it can reduce transmission life as well.
Don’t Ignore Issues
Most transmission problems start out small. They get worse over time. You can eliminate major repairs simply by taking care of the problem early on.
Tune the Engine
The engines and transmissions in today’s cars are linked far more closely than in the past. A problem with engine performance can put much more strain on the transmission than one that’s running properly.
Many people are in the habit of “riding the clutch” as they transition between gears. A general rule of thumb, when using the clutch it should either be all the way up or all the way down.
