Is it time for Transmission Service?

March 14, 2011  

There are two types of transmission, the Automatic and Manual transmission which both require different types of maintenance.   When getting Transmission Service for you vehicle it has several components, including changing of the vehicles fuel and filters, while also lubricating gears and other components inside a cars transmission.

Some people think that changing transmission fluid is the only service needed to keep their transmission maintained.  It  actually helps a lot if you do that regularly but ideally you should maintain your transmission beyond just changing the fluid.  In addition to replacing your transmission fluid you should also replace the filter to ensure the best performance.  And all transmission maintenance should be done while using the vehicle manufacturer recommendations. This will make sure your car is in proper condition over the long run and that any warranties are still covered.  Although there are other services that can be done to make sure your transmission is well maintained and works perfect.

Transmission service for automatic transmission may also include removal of the pan, replacement of your filter, removal of the old gasket material, replacement of the pan gasket with a new one and of course removal of transmission fluid or draining and refilling of new transmission fluid.

Although not all transmission services are the same with auto shops, some may offer more service yet others may just offer drain and refill of your transmission fluid. You may consider checking the services offered and what is needed for the vehicle. Make sure that they offer quality service for vehicles and have a good reputation within the community.  Like Carson Cars Reviews, where you can see we take great care of our clients!

It is also recommended to have the service through a certified auto repair shop.  They really know the vehicle inside and out. They also have access to the best parts and would have the type of fluid that is best for the vehicle.  Whatever you decide make sure that the transmission fluid is changed regularly to prolong the life of your vehicle. Nothing makes a car last longer and perform as well as maintaining it properly with the right auto service experts.

Do not wait until you hear or notice problems with you transmission before you have service. Normally problems start when a vehicle overheats, and by that time you may have already done some major damage. Of course that is not the only reason why a transmission breaks down. Sometimes it is because of low maintenance or poor design. That is why having a regular Everett transmission service prevents problem with the transmission before you need Everett Transmission Repair.
