The Real Importance of Transmission Service

Transmission maintenance is one of the more commonly neglected parts of keeping a vehicle operating in a safe and effective manner. When a vehicle needs the gas refilled, it's quick to alert the driver. But transmission fluid is another matter. Some vehicles do have an automated reminder. However, for most people, it's something that they're going to have to remember on their own.

Transmission service refers to work on a variety of different parts of a vehicle's basic transmission system. In the simplest terms, the transmission transmits energy from the engine to the wheels. When people refer to a vehicle as manual or automatic, they're referring to the way the driver operates the transmission system. They either do it manually or rely on automated systems to handle it.

If the engine is the heart of a vehicle, the transmission can be thought of as the circulatory system. And problems with the transmission are just as significant to a vehicle as circulatory issues are to a person. Thankfully transmission service will usually take care of most problems in the system.

There are two main reasons why transmissions need to be serviced. The first is a preventative measure. Transmission fluid needs to be changed every 30,000 to 100,000 miles or so. Failing to regularly change transmission fluid can lead to damage of various other parts of the vehicle. General wear and tear, direct damage or environmental factors can all have a negative impact on the transmission's health. One sign of this is grinding noises. This is a result of gears that aren't properly lubricated. Small puddles underneath a parked vehicle can indicate that transmission fluid is leaking. Other signs can include a more subtle burnt smell within and near one's vehicle.

All of these signs point to a need for transmission repair. It's important to do this as quickly as possible. Waiting too long for transmission repair can create a domino effect where it creates problems which in turn create new issues. It can also mean the difference between a repair job and a full replacement. A repair simply involves fixing a small number of localized issues within the transmission system. For example, a small leak. A full replacement is a costly process which essentially removes the damaged transmission system in order to replace it with a new one. As this is one of the more costly procedures, it's important to have issues with one's transmission take care of before they begin to escalate.
