Why is Transmission Service Important?

Within the transmission system, you will find transmission fluid that lubricates, cleans and cools all the internal components of your vehicle’s powertrain system. Doing so ensures that all these components work optimally to contribute to the seamless operation of your car. However, transmission fluid gets dirty over time, severely affecting fuel efficiency and performance. This is where transmission system service becomes important, as it changes or replaces the contaminated transmission oil with a new one, restoring the car’s smooth performance. Moreover, regular service not only improves your vehicle’s performance but also enhances its fuel efficiency, saving you money in the long run. 

What Are the Common Signs of Transmission Fluid Breakdown?

Some common signs that indicate a failing transmission oil include:

  • A metal-on-metal grinding sound
  • Check engine light activates
  • Delayed acceleration
  • Burning fluid smell
  • Leaking fluid
  • Delayed gear shifting
