When Should You Get Transmission Maintenance Done?
As for when you should take your vehicle into Meineke at Mascoutah IL to have transmission maintenance and possibly transmission repair work done, the short answer is: You should get transmission repair work done whenever your transmission shows signs of failure. There are many different ways in which you can tell your transmission is going out. If you experience hesitation when shifting gears, falling out of gear, or shifting gears for no reason, those are all warning signs. Grinding and shimmying between gears are also bad omens, and even unusual noises or whining sounds can point to the urgent need for transmission repair work.
Understanding Your Transmission Repair Needs
How much power does your engine need to generate? That’s a question you don’t have to think about, because your automatic transmission does it for you. That’s ultimately what a vehicle’s transmission is all about—regulating the power from the engine to match the current speed, ensuring optimal performance. Of course, this involves some wear and tear—as well as depletion of transmission fluid—so transmission maintenance is a must. But what should vehicle owners know about their transmission, and about the urgency of regular transmission repair?
How Often Should Your Car Get a Transmission Service?
As for how often you need transmission service, it just depends on the kind of car you’re driving. With some vehicles, it’s every 30,000 miles. The best practice is to simply check transmission fluid whenever you do your other routine vehicle maintenance. Meineke’s service technicians can tell you if you do for transmission repair or for a transmission flush.

The Need to Check Transmission Fluid
The reason to check transmission fluid is simply to ensure that it’s not getting too dirty; remember that dirty transmission fluid doesn’t work well as a lubricant. By bringing your vehicle in to Meineke in Mascoutah IL, you can get a transmission fluid check and, if needed, a full transmission flush.
Why Check Transmission Fluid in Your Vehicle?
The transmission flush is critical because it’s what helps you replace dirty transmission fluid. You see, the function of transmission fluid is to lubricate your gears, safeguarding them against everyday wear and tear. When the transmission fluid becomes dirty, the effects on your entire transmission system can be corrosive. It’s imperative to keep your transmission fluid in good working order, which is why both the transmission fluid check and transmission flush should be on your maintenance radar.
