When Should You Get Transmission Maintenance Done?

As for when you should take your vehicle into Meineke at Columbia Heights MN 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.

How Often Should You Get a Transmission Flush?

It’s important to take your vehicle to Meineke whenever you notice problems with the transmission. As for how often you should have a transmission flush, that depends on the vehicle; some manufacturers recommend getting a transmission flush every 30,000 miles or so, others every 100,000. You can check in your owner’s manual, but what we really recommend is just having your transmission fluid looked at when you take your vehicle in for routine maintenance, like a tire rotation or oil change.

How Does Your Vehicle Transmission Work?

The transmission is one of the most important systems in your vehicle, yet many drivers don’t quite understand how it works. Essentially, the transmission regulates the amount of power your engine sends to the wheels, relative to the speed you’re going—ensuring an optimal performance. To accomplish this, your transmission needs transmission fluid, which lubricates your gears and prevents wear and tear. Additionally, vehicle owners should be aware of the need for routine transmission maintenance—and in particular, transmission fluid inspection and replacement. You can have this done at Meineke in Columbia Heights MN, and we recommend making it part of your routine preventative maintenance schedule.

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 Columbia Heights MN, 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.
