Preventive maintenance and transmission repair
Because your car’s transmission is an essential component for your car, it’s absolutely essential that it undergoes maintenance as recommended by the vehicle manufacturer. You can find recommended transmission maintenance in your owner’s manual or the manufacturer’s website.
Typical regular transmission maintenance items may include inspecting and adjusting the clutch pedal on manual transmission vehicles, and inspecting, topping off or flushing the transmission fluid in the transmission case for automatic and manual transmission vehicles. Many transmission repair specialists recommend checking your transmission fluid level at least twice each year.
Check your vehicle manufacturer’s recommended maintenance schedule to determine if and when these services should be performed and remember to follow recommendations specific to more severe driving conditions such as dusty environments or regularly towing or carrying heavy loads. If your stuck in slick weather conditions, it’s best to call a tow truck. Trying to get your vehicle unstuck may cause transmission damage.
