Transmission repair costs vary based on the age, make and condition of your vehicle. No one, however, wants to pay a transmission and clutch repair specialist for service if they can help it. While it’s impossible to avoid repairs forever, here are 3 automatic transmission care tips to follow. Regular maintenance saves you money over time.
Check Your Transmission Fluid
Checking your automatic transmission fluid is important for keeping the transmission functioning longer. You can do this yourself or take your vehicle to a transmission specialist. It’s also important that you use the right kind of transmission fluid.
Have Your Transmission Flushed
Another part of good transmission maintenance is having a professional flush the transmission regularly. Every vehicle is a little different, but you should expect to have your transmission fluid changed about once a year.
Avoid Changing Gears While Driving
You should only change gears when your vehicle is completely stopped. Moving from one gear to another while your car is moving puts strain on the transmission. Doing this often can result in serious damage to your automatic transmission.
