It is so easy to take our cars and trucks for granted. They get us from point A to point B and then we leave them in our driveways or garages and go about our day-to-day lives, ignoring maintenance issues until it is too late. Well, enough is enough. It is time we show our cars and trucks a little love. Your car and your wallet will thank you!
Transmission Preventive Maintenance
- Automatic Transmissions: Most automotive repair experts recommend changing an automatic transmission’s fluid and filter every two years or 24,000 miles, whichever comes first. This is especially important if the vehicle is more than five years old. Regular preventive maintenance will help prevent expensive repairs and keep your transmission in good working order. However, it is important to remember that these are just recommendations. If you use and abuse your car or truck, tow a trailer, go off-roading, or carry a camper, it may be best to change your transmission fluid and filter every 12 months or 12,000 miles.
- Manual Transmissions: Most manual transmissions do not require regular preventive maintenance, but may need service due to a worn clutch, throw-out bearings, or broken synchromesh gears. Check your owner’s manual for specific information on manual transmission maintenance.
If you notice any warning signs of transmission trouble, take your car or truck to your local auto repair shop as soon as possible. Remember the old adage “a stitch in time saves nine?” Well, the same goes for automotive repair. It is better to repair a small issue early than let that issue snowball out of control, requiring an expensive repair.
