You depend on your car every day. It gets you to work, helps you run your errands, and brings you home safe after a long day. Being without your car would be a major inconvenience, so you want it to keep running for years to come. You don’t have time for car transmission problems! Luckily, there are several things you can do to help keep your transmission (and car) running properly. Here are three things you should do to prevent transmission issues:
1. Take Your Car to the Shop Regularly
Regular car maintenance is vital for keeping your vehicle running strong for years. In fact, having a professional examine your car and perform minor maintenance regularly doesn’t just keep your car on the road longer, it helps limit the potential for larger and more expensive repairs in the future.
2. Buy Only Synthetic Fluids
You may be wondering if there’s really that big of a difference between various types of transmission fluids. The answer is absolutely. When you take your car in, make sure you auto specialist only uses synthetic transmission fluids. These resist heat better and will last much longer.
3. Upgrade Transmission Coolers
While your car will already have a functioning transmission cooler, it may be worth considering upgrading to a better one. You can have your technician install improved fans to help keep your transmission from overheating. When your car runs hot, it drastically decreases the lifespan of your transmission.
