Transmission Tips 7-8

Tip 7: Preventive Maintenance

Your transmission’s vital parts get clogged with sludge and varnish deposits…just like the oil in your car’s engine. Transmission fluid suffers from heat, friction and electrochemical degradation. In fact, nearly nine out of ten transmission failures are due to overheating and fluid contamination.

Preventive maintenance every 24,000 – 36,000 kilometers is the key to insuring a longer life span of your transmission. Take care of your car so that your car can take care of you and allow you to arrive to your destination safely.

Tip 8: Extreme Conditions can affect the Life Expectancy

Extreme conditions, hot or cold weather, frequent long trips and off road driving can affect the life expectancy of your transmission. Overhauling is a major contributing factor in transmission fluid breakdown. Bring your vehicle in for our Free road test and Multi-Check to keep it running smoothly all year long and inquire about a transmission cooler for your vehicle. Towing can be a cause of transmission fluid overheating. You may require extra fluid cooling capacity if your vehicle regularly pulls a heavy load.
