How You Can Maintain Your Transmission
At our facility, we want to equip our customers with all the information they need to succeed. Transmission repairs can get pricey, and if we know something that can help you avoid it, we want you to know about it.
Although doing DIY repairs on your transmission is something we discourage, there are some things you can do to maintain your transmission’s performance for longer. Whether you have no idea what to do or you’re looking for more methods to maintain, here are some tips to protect your transmission:
- Don’t change gears while moving: one of the easiest ways to protect your transmission is to avoid shifting from “reverse” to “drive” while the car is moving. Doing so places an extreme amount of pressure on the system, and it can quickly lead to problems if done consistently. Instead, get to a full stop before changing gears. This will help preserve the system for longer and ensure your transmission is working properly for miles to come.
- Avoid towing: unless your vehicle is specifically designed to handle towing, it’s best that you avoid doing so with your vehicle. Towing can put a tremendous amount of stress on your vehicle, which can lead to the transmission fluid oxidizing or burning up. As a result? A higher likelihood of your transmission sustaining serious damage.
