One of the most frequently asked questions is “When should I service my transmission?” This can vary depending on driving conditions. Only qualified transmission specialists can direct you to the most beneficial maintenance schedule. Performing routine maintenance on your transmission is the key to preventing costly repairs down the road. The watchful eyes of our experts are able to spot red flags that can become serious problems if not addressed. Heat is the number one cause of failures in transmissions. The transmission oil is critical for lubricating the transmission and reducing friction. When the fluid breaks down and loses its viscosity, it no longer effectively lubricates the transmission. This causes premature and excessive wear and results in transmission failure.
Transmission fluid cools in the front of the vehicle either in the radiator or an external cooler. If the engine overheats, so can the transmission and cause major damage. Make sure your cooling system is in good working order to protect your transmission. Bring your vehicle to Mike’s Transmission Service for premium quality transmission care.
