An Overview of Transmission Maintenance

Every car has a transmission—most of them automatic, some manual—and all of them do basically the same thing: The job of the vehicle transmission is to regulate the amount of power that goes to your wheels, always relative to the speed at which you’re traveling. The transmission actively shifts gears, much like on a multi-speed bike. Of course, there are some key distinctions between automatic and manual transmission, but what’s the same across every vehicle is that attending to regular transmission maintenance is vitally important.

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.

Why Might You Need Transmission Repair Done?

Transmission service is needed for a couple of reasons. One, you may have dirty transmission fluid—and dirty transmission fluid needs to be flushed and replaced, otherwise it’s just not very effective. Two, even with transmission fluid, your gears may still take on some wear and tear, and transmission repair work can become necessary for them to work properly again.

Scheduling a Transmission Flush

A common question from vehicle owners: How often is a transmission flush needed? The short answer: It just depends. Some vehicles require a transmission flush more often than others. You can check your owner’s manual for a general recommendation. Also remember to get your transmission fluid checked on a routine basis, helping you stay on top of any transmission maintenance needs.

Discover the Basics of Transmission Maintenance

It’s easy to overlook your vehicle’s transmission, especially if you have an automatic. It does its thing—shifting gears, regulating your engine’s power—totally in the background, and you don’t much notice it until it starts acting up. That doesn’t mean it isn’t essential, because it is; you need a functional transmission for your car to perform optimally. And of course, a working transmission isn’t going to happen by accident. You have to be intentional about it, taking care of your transmission through regular transmission maintenance and a routine transmission flush.
