Are car’s transmission plays an important role and, as such, needs regular maintenance. While some drivers attempt to do the work themselves, many drivers take their vehicles to the dealership to have the work done. The important thing is to have it maintained.

The transmission’s job is to get the power from the engine and transfer it to the driveshaft and wheels. In order for it to do this, it needs to be lubricated with transmission fluid. It’s important to drain the transmission fluid regularly and replace it with fresh fluid every 30,000 to 100,000 miles.

Transmissions can be damaged by environmental factors, direct damage like accidents, and just plain wear and tear. Regular maintenance can prevent these factors from causing permanent damage. You may get signs that indicate your transmission needs work. These might include:

  • Grinding noise
  • Puddles of transmission fluid underneath the vehicle
  • An odor of something burning
