Transmission Repair

Why is Transmission Maintenance So Important?

There are different reasons why transmission repair work is so important. One is that you eventually run out of transmission fluid; indeed, you may need a transmission flush anywhere from every 30,000 miles to every 100,000 miles, just depending on the kind of car you drive. And even apart from fluid, your transmission system undergoes a lot of wear and tear just through everyday use—so sooner or later, transmission repair is almost inevitable.

What Makes Transmission Fluid Necessary?

Your transmission system itself works a bit like a bike. When pedaling a multi-speed bike in a low gear, it’s easy to get acceleration, but hard to work up much speed. By shifting into a higher gear—once the bike is on level ground and moving at a decent clip—higher speed can be achieved. That’s essentially the same function that transmission serves within a car—regulating the power relative to speed. And that requires the use of transmission fluid, which serves a critical function—lubricating your gears and minimizing the effect of daily wear and tear. All of this points to a basic point about vehicle maintenance: You should have transmission fluid inspection—and yes, transmission flush—as part of your regular preventative maintenance schedule.

How Often Do You Need a Transmission Flush?

The frequency with which your car needs a transmission flush varies. With some vehicles, it’s every 30,000 miles. Others can go more than 100,000. A smart solution is to ask for a transmission fluid check every time you get your oil changed and tires rotated. Your Meineke service professional can make further recommendations for ongoing transmission maintenance.

How to Know When It’s Time for Transmission Maintenance

The question is, when do you know it’s time to schedule some transmission maintenance? Well, it’s good to check transmission fluid levels regularly—perhaps when you bring your car in for an oil change or tire rotation, once or twice a year. You should also schedule transmission repair if you notice any problems shifting gears, such as strange noises during the gear shift process.

Discover the Basics of Transmission Maintenance

It’s easy to overlook your vehicle’s transmission, especially if you have an automatic. It does its thing—shifting gears, regulating your engine’s power—totally in the background, and you don’t much notice it until it starts acting up. That doesn’t mean it isn’t essential, because it is; you need a functional transmission for your car to perform optimally. And of course, a working transmission isn’t going to happen by accident. You have to be intentional about it, taking care of your transmission through regular transmission maintenance and a routine transmission flush.
