Whether you have a manual or automatic transmission, it is crucial that your cars transmission is inspected periodically.
Your cars transmission is what determines how efficiently it distributes power from the engine to the wheels. Transmission lubricant protects gears, bearings, shafts and other internal components. It is vital that this is checked periodically as fluid inside the automatic transmission degrades.
A rule of thumb, and as advised by most manufacturers, is to replace at a set period of years of service or kilometres of driving. The period will be shorter the more the car is used.
This will result in enhanced lubrication whilst aiding in maintaining good care of the transmission. Maintaining good care will result in a longer life of transmission engine.
Pro Auto Performance mechanics after doing a complete check will consult you on your cars current transmission health and provide a solution on how to fix any problems.
