Transmission Maintenance Tips From Helotes, TX Technicians

| By: Christian Brothers Automotive

The expert technicians at our local Helotes auto repair are here to help you safeguard your transmission from extensive damage.

Transmission fluid leaks

The transmission fluid is very important to keep the system well maintained. It keeps all the components lubricated and cool so that it can perform correctly. If you don’t have enough fluid or the fluid has degraded, it can cause serious problems. Most transmission fluids are bright red in color so you can easily tell if there’s a leak dripping under your car.

Fluid flush or drain and fill?

The ASE-certified technicians at our Helotes auto repair shop recommend a complete fluid flush to replace the fluid. The drain and fill service will only replace the fluid in the pan, but half of the fluid is located in other parts of the transmission system. Special equipment is used to pump out all of the bad fluid and replace it with new transmission fluid that’s ready to work!

Keep your car from overheating

Overheating is a huge issue when it comes to transmissions. Towing big loads, driving in bad traffic when it’s extremely hot, and racing will all cause the transmission to overheat. Your vehicle’s cooling system also helps the transmission stay cool. In fact, the cooling system impacts much more than just the transmission [].
