TRANSMISSION MAINTENANCE

transmission_repair_albanyMy father used to tell his customers that “…if you treat you car right for the 1st 100,000 miles it will return the favor for the 2nd 100,000”. It was true then and it’s true now. Maintenance and transmission repair is the most important area the owner has control of over his vehicle. Most of our customers know about changing the engine oil. Most know about there tires but their knowledge of their              transmission is nearly 0. Transmission servicing is becoming more critical and the units become more complicated. A modern transmission can have eight forward speeds, a dedicated computer, dozens of sensors, and be interconnected to the braking system, the traction control system, and the steering system. All this in an effort to increase “efficiency” by 1%.

Lost in all this high tech engineering is the need to keep the transmission fluid clean. When a transmission is serviced only some of the fluid is replaced w/ new. That’s correct, the only time a transmission has 100% new fluid is when it is brand new or being replace, otherwise we are “blending” a portion of new fluid (20% to 50%) w/ the old fluid. If we wait to long the service it then the “blended” result is poor. This is even more critical when our customer learns that his vehicle’s transmission filter is NOT servicable. That’s right, some manufactures starting in the 1980’s  placed the transmission filter inside the transmission in such a manor that the transmission has to be removed & disassembled just to replace a $5.00 filter. Brilliant, just brilliant. you don’t want to get behind the maintenance curve on these units.
