May it be manual or an automatic transmission—transmission service comes highly recommended and that too by professional certified mechanics like those at Mission Car Care. Before your transmission begins to give your problems and leaves you high and dry, drive your car into Mission Car Care in Katy, Texas and have your transmission fluid changed.
It is wise to let a professional do this with a transmission flusher, which replaces the fluid thoroughly. Transmission fluid acts as a lubricant for all of the moving parts inside your transmission. In an automatic transmission, it plays the role of a coolant and a viscous fluid that transmits power from the engine to the transmission.
Manual transmissions can use regular motor oil, heavyweight hypoid gear oil or even automatic transmission fluid in some cases.
In an automatic transmission more heat is generated causing the automatic transmission fluid to degrade. In case of a manual transmission fluid contamination caused by the wear and tear of bearings, gears and synchronizers shortens the life of the transmission. These contaminants need to be flushed out.
The expert team at Mission Car Care recommends that manual transmission fluid be changed every 30,000 to 60,000 miles and service intervals for an automatic transmission vary from 60,000 to 100,000 miles. Changing your transmission fluid with Mission Car Care at the correct interval is a good investment and can save you oodles of money in the long run for transmission repairs.
You might need a transmission fix if your car has trouble starting and you experience trembling especially when you are driving at a high speed. Pink fluid leaking from under your car while moving from a parking position is also a sign of a faulty transmission. It is important to check for a bad clutch, slipping of transmission and the engine lights as new cars have transmissions which are controlled by the computer and a engine light can help you know whether your transmission is faulty or not.
When you come to Franz Road in Katy at Mission Car Care, we will check your transmission fluid level during your oil change or preventive maintenance visits between service intervals too.
