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.
When it comes time for transmission repair at Meineke in Fairless Hills PA, you’ll likely know it. You’ll experience any number of symptoms of a faulty transmission—trouble shifting gears, slipping out of gear, a whining noise or a grinding sound when you shift gears, etc. All of these are signs that the time for a transmission flush, or perhaps additional transmission repair work, is now.
Transmission fluid will eventually get dirty and lose its lubricating power—which makes it necessary to get a regular transmission flush. Additionally, you should take your car in for transmission maintenance any time you detect problems—such as grinding or whining sounds when the vehicle shifts gears. Difficulty changing gears, or frequently slipping out of gear, should also be taken as a warning sign. This is when you need to schedule transmission service ASAP.
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 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 Fairless Hills PA, you can get a transmission fluid check and, if needed, a full transmission flush.
There are a few warning signs that it’s time for a transmission maintenance appointment. If you notice that your car seems to have a hard time shifting gears—if there is a jostling, or a grinding noise—that’s a dead giveaway. The car slipping out of gear, or changing gears at random times, is another one. And any whining noise you heard could point to a transmission issue. That means it’s time to take your car to Meineke in Fairless Hills PA for maintenance!
