Transmission Service & Repair Castle Rock
An automatic transmission has a lot of moving parts which are all covered in Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) to keep things running smoothly. Over time, ATF will break down due to heat. As the fluid breaks down your transmission will have to work harder and hotter to get you where you are going. Leaving that old, dirty fluid in your transmission could land you with a costly repair bill. A transmission service helps prevent this by draining the old fluid out, replacing any dirty filters and refilling with fresh, clean transmission fluid.
If you plan to keep your vehicle for an extended period of time or bought a car with high mileage, servicing the transmission is essential. The good news is, a transmission service is done in between much longer intervals than other preventative maintenance. Consumer Reports recommend every 100,000 miles for newer vehicles. Transmission service also cost much less than paying to replace or fix a transmission in the long run!
Next time you’re in for routine vehicle maintenance, speak with your trusted mechanic and ask whether your car will need to be serviced around the 100,000 mile mark. Planning ahead for preventative care is the best way to plan and save money while extending the life of your vehicle. At Everything Trucks & Auto, we prioritize your vehicles needs and provide expertise in taking care of your vehicle in the future!
