Your transmission is, without a doubt, one of your vehicle’s most important components. It is a complex structure that transfers power from the engine to the wheels. Without proper transmission maintenance, you can easily spend thousands of dollars on replacement or rebuilding costs. Fortunately, you can avoid such a scenario with regular maintenance.
Here are ways a few ways you’ll save money with transmission maintenance:
- Vehicle performance. Most transmission systems fail due to dirty fluid getting clogged and damaging sensitive parts in the engine. The transmission fluid is supposed to keep all components lubricated to minimize friction. You’ll notice shifting problems while driving if the fluid is low-quality or old, so the car will become sluggish even on flat terrain. Our professional team at Lindsay Tire Automotive & Accessories can diagnose and verify such problems.
- Longer service. The transmission system is a core component of your car, which is why its condition affects the rest of the vehicle. If left unchecked, it could damage other expensive parts such as the engine, drive train, suspension, and cooling system. A poorly maintained transmission system subjects the rest of the vehicle to unnecessary stress when driving. Transmission maintenance will ensure that you ride smoothly for a longer time.
- Expose hidden problems. Transmission problems, such as poor shifting, may indicate other engine problems. For example, a defective solenoid can cause the transmission to overheat, since enough liquid isn’t pumped to cool the engine. In this case, the solenoid should be replaced, as it will cause a snowball effect by damaging the transmission system.
