TRANSMISSION TIPS

Tips For Prolonging the Life Expectancy of Your Transmission:

  • Check your transmission fluid on a regular basis. Refer to your vehicle's Owner's Manual for instructions on how to properly check the transmission fluid level.
  • Consider investing in an external cooler.  Installing an external cooler helps to alleviate friction and heat.
  • Most vehicles driven within city limits are considered to be operating under high stress conditions.  High stress conditions include:  driving on damaged roads, driving during excessively hot weather, driving frequently in stop and go traffic, or transporting heavy loads or towing.  If your vehicle operates under high stress conditions, it's critical to change the transmission fluid more often than the recommended schedule.
  • Maintain a proper schedule of engine tune-ups.  When an engine is not performing correctly, it can appear to be a transmission problem.
  • Have your vehicle lifted and examined for leaks at least twice a year.
  • Towing or hauling heavy loads can cause excessive heat to build up in the transmission.  If the transmission fluid is exposed to higher temperatures on a regular basis, it can become contaminated, burned off, or both.  Check your transmission fluid level immediately after towing a load.
  • Before you begin driving, allow your car some time to warm up.
  • Put on the parking brake whenever you park your vehicle.

We frequently see vehicles with transmission issues that could have been avoided or could have been a much lesser problem.  Many times a driver will ignore the signs of a transmission problem until extensive damage has been done.  In other instances, transmission problems are worsened by having it serviced poorly or by someone who is not qualified to repair it.  Don't let this happen to you - have your transmission inspected and serviced by the best at The Transmission Shop in Lewisville, McKinney, Dallas, Garland, or Plano.  We are qualified and affordable!  We will save you time and money by getting the job done correctly the first time.  Statistics have proven that car repair bills tend to increase in direct proportion to the number of miles driven after the first symptoms of a problem appear.  If your vehicle is showing any of the signs of a transmission problem, don't wait any longer!  We don't want you to end up with any increase in damage.  It's a lot easier to come in now for a simple repair than it is to wait and let the problem compound.  An inexpensive repair now may become an entire transmission overhaul or replacement later.
