How To Maintain Your Transmission

The easiest maintenance practice is regularly replacing transmission fluid. Making sure these fluids are clean will greatly improve the longevity of your transmission system. The fluid is measured with a dipstick. If you you are unsure where the dipstick is, refer to your vehicles owners manual.

Check the transmission fluid by simply removing the dipstick and viewing the level of fluid left in your vehicle. Make sure to keep your fluids at the specified levels located on the dipstick. Make sure you don't add too much fluid as this can also cause problems.

Additional Practices

Overheating your vehicle can also affect the transmission. If you are towing a heavy load or in stop and go traffic on a hot day, your transmission may also be damaged. Making sure to not over exert your vehicle beyond normal limits will help maintain a properly functioning transmission.
