Transmission Service at Auto Pro Clinton Township in Clinton Township



Let's talk about transmission service. It can be easy for Clinton Township drivers to forget about getting their transmission serviced because it doesn't need it very often. It's easier for people in Michigan to remember to change the engine oil - you know, every 3,000 miles or 5,000 kilometers. But proper transmission servicing keeps your vehicle running smoothly and helps us avoid repairs down the road.

The transmission undergoes a lot of stress. The grit you can see in used transmission fluid is actually bits of metal that wear off the gears in the transmission. In addition to that, the transmission operates at very high temperatures. Usually it's 100 to 150 degrees higher than engine temperatures. Those high temperatures eventually cause the transmission fluid to start to break down and lose efficiency.

As the fluid gets older, it gets gritty and doesn't lubricate and cool the vehicle transmission as well - leading to even more wear. The fluid can actually get sludgy and plug up the maze of fluid passages inside the transmission. At best, your transmission won't operate smoothly. At worse, it could lead to damage.

When your transmission is running properly, it transfers more power from your engine to the drive wheels, and improves . That's why recommend changing your transmission fluid at regular intervals. Your owner's manual has a schedule for transmission service and, of course, your service advisor at Auto Pro Clinton Township can tell you what is recommended.

Hot and dusty Clinton Township area conditions; towing, hauling, stop and go driving and jackrabbit starts all increase the load on the transmission and its internal temperature. That means Clinton Township vehicles with these types of transmission requirements need to change the fluid more often. A good rule of thumb is every 35,000 miles, 55,000 kilometers or two years. If your suggests more frequent intervals or if you're driving under severe service conditions around Warren, you will need to change it more often.

Most Clinton Township auto service centers (including Auto Pro Clinton Township) have the ability to perform a transmission service while you wait and the cost is quite reasonable. It's downright cheap when you think about how much a major transmission repair can cost! Our pros at Auto Pro Clinton Township will know the right type of transmission fluid to use. If it's getting to be time to have your transmission serviced, do your vehicle a favor and have it done. If not this time, then on your next service stop.
