    How to Extend the Life of Your Vehicle's Transmission

    Last updated 1 year ago

    Whether you have an automatic or manual transmission, taking care of it is essential if you want it to deliver reliable, efficient performance for years to come. This means operating your transmission carefully and servicing it routinely. Continue reading to find out more about extending the life of your Silver Spring car’s transmission.

    Inspect and Change Transmission Fluid

    Clean transmission fluid lubricates your transmission and helps prevent it from overheating. If there is insufficient fluid in your transmission or if the fluid has become dirty, your transmission will overheat and wear out quickly. Visit a reputable car repair shop every 5,000 miles to have the quality and quantity of transmission fluid checked.

    Avoid Using the Transmission to Brake

    A surprising number of people think that downshifting is the appropriate way to stop a vehicle. However, this can place a tremendous amount of stress on your transmission. Instead, just shift into neutral and use the brakes to stop the car.

    Go to a Car Repair Shop to Fix Problems Promptly

    If you notice a slipping transmission, a transmission leak, or an unusual noise, visit a car repair shop right away. Transmission problems will only get worse, and may even damage other important components such as the engine if left unchecked.

    Don’t Speed

    Aside from the safety risks associated with speeding, you shouldn’t speed if you want to extend the life of your car’s transmission. Quick acceleration and shifting wears out your transmission, whether you’re in the city or on the highway.

    Drive in the Right Gear

    If you have a manual transmission, select a gear that keeps engine RPMs under 4,000. This will reduce transmission wear, ensure that your transmission lasts longer, and even improve your vehicle’s fuel economy.

    At Murray’s Auto Clinics, you can get transmission maintenance and repair that will lengthen the life of your transmission. Our family owned and operated auto repair shop is happy to answer your questions. Call us today at (240) 450-2478 or visit our website for more information.

    • It's always disconcerting when the check engine light goes on, which happened to me Monday night. A quick call told me that it was drivable, but should come in. I dropped if off Wednesday night, and it was ready before noon Thursday! The cause was a broken fitting to a vacuum hose, and the cost was minimal.
