It’s wise to incorporate transmission inspection and repair into your routine maintenance schedule. When you get your tires rotated and your oil changed, also have the transmission fluid examined, and flushed if needed. Of course, you shouldn’t hesitate to take your car in for transmission repair at the first sign of a problem.

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.
One of the most common forms of transmission maintenance is the transmission flush—basically, having your dirty transmission fluid cleaned out and replaced. This is needed for a simple reason: As your transmission fluid becomes dirty, it ceases to function the way it’s meant to, and that can lead to more wear and tear for those gears. It’s recommended that you get a transmission flush done on a quasi-regular basis, much like you do with your oil change and tire rotation.
Transmission fluid is a critical part of your transmission, serving in one key capacity: It keeps your gears lubricated, and safeguards them against wear and tear. In other words, it extends the lifespan of your transmission system. As the transmission fluid becomes dirty, though, it doesn’t lubricate nearly as well, which is why you’ll eventually need to schedule a 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 Plano TX for maintenance!
