How to get more out of your transmission

One of the repairs that will cost you a lot on a car is having the transmission done.It is a repair that you do that you really don’t want to hear you have to do.Naturally most people will want to know some ways to get it to last longer.Or they are interested in knowing if it even can be done. Like most things it is possible.  You can make it last longer by making sure to take care of them.  But here are more specific things you can do to make your transmission last longer.

First thing you have to do without fail is keep the proper levels of fluid.  Just like everything in your car you want to keep your fluids right.  But with a transmission it is crucial if you want your car to last longer.  Whenever a client takes there car in to the Oceanside transmission repair shop I run I always check their fluids.I make sure to suggest to them to keep a watchful eye on their fluid levels.  If they run their car with low fluids they will surely ruin their transmission.  Or it won’t last as long as they want.

Second thing you have to know is that heat can hurt your transmission.So you are going to want to find ways to get your transmission to run cooler.  One of the best ways to do that is to add transmission cooler.You can find some easily at an auto parts dealer.  Of course when clients come and bring their cars in to our Escondido auto repair shop we add it in also.This gives the transmission the ability to run cooler.

Finally this way is going to be easy.  Never shift gears until you come to a complete stop.  You will be surprised at the number of people who ruin their cars by shifting gears while the car is moving.  I am not because we see it all the time in our Oceanside auto repair shop.  People bring their cars in with ruined transmissions because they shifted while moving.
