The transmission of a vehicle can be compared to that of a bike. In a multi-speed bicycle, low gears allow for quick acceleration, but not for very much speed; once you get going, you can switch into a higher gear to get that speed. Cars work in essentially the same way, and it’s vital to match your engine output to the speed at which you’re traveling; otherwise, your car simply won’t perform very well.
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?
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.
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.
