Taking good care of your automatic transmission is important. The better care you give, the fewer issues you’ll have, and the longer the transmission will last. No one wants to pay for automatic transmission repair, but you can’t hold it off forever. While repair costs will vary depending on the year and make of your vehicle, proper automatic transmission care and maintenance will limit the need to visit an automatic transmission repair shop. Here are a few tips to help prolong the life of your transmission.
Check the Transmission Fluid
While examining the transmission fluid isn’t a complicated job, many car owners rather leave it to a transmission technician. Checking the level and color of the fluid regularly will extend transmission life.
Flush Your Transmission Occasionally
Flushing your transmission is essentially changing the fluid, just like you do with the motor oil. Transmission fluid changes don’t need to happen as frequently, though. A transmission flush about once a year sounds about right.
Don’t Change Gears While Driving
Changing gears in an automatic while driving can cause premature wear to your transmission. Avoid doing this at all costs. While you probably won’t notice changes right away, it does gradually wear down the transmission much faster and can result in expensive repairs.
