When Should You Get Transmission Maintenance Done?

As for when you should take your vehicle into Meineke at Hawthorne NJ 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.

The Benefits of Your Transmission System

To understand what makes a transmission so important, think of a bike. When you pedal in a low gear, you can get great acceleration, but usually not much speed. Once you start coasting along a flat surface, you can switch to a higher gear and start improving that speed. Your car’s transmission does basically the same thing, modulating your power to ensure optimal performance.

How Often Do You Need a Transmission Flush?

As for how often you need a transmission flush, it just depends on the kind of car you’re driving. 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’re 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 Hawthorne NJ, you can get a transmission fluid check and, if needed, a full transmission flush.

How Frequently is Transmission Maintenance Needed?

Some auto manufacturers recommend that you get a transmission flush every 30,000 miles. For other cars, it’s just once every 100,000 miles. You can check your owner’s manual for a general estimate, but really what we recommend is just asking a Meineke service professional to check transmission fluid levels every time you get an oil change or tire rotation. Just make it part of your preventative maintenance routine, and stay on top of all your transmission maintenance requirements!
