Why is Transmission Service Important?
As one of the key components of your vehicle, the transmission is also one of the hardest working. Whether you have an automatic, CVT or manual transmission, the more you drive, the more the transmission fluid degrades and stops protecting the parts of your engine that need lubrication. That’s why the team at our CDJR service center recommends transmission fluid flush service to remove any varnish, particles, dirt and debris that needs to be removed.
When we perform transmission service, our certified technicians filter in a cleaning solution to your system to help remove any sludge. A transmission flush also adds conditioner to the working parts to help improve fuel economy and overall engine performance. Soon after automatic transmission service or a transmission fluid flush, you’ll notice that your vehicle handles better and performs as it should.
When Should I Schedule Transmission Service?
On average, most CDJR vehicles require transmission service and every two years or 30,000 miles. However, there are some factors that affect the timeline for transmission service. If you drive in harsh weather environments, you may need a transmission flush sooner than the recommended timeline. If you suspect any issues with how your vehicle is performing, we recommend contacting our service center staff to schedule a check up so we can troubleshoot any problems you may be experiencing.
During transmission service, it may be necessary to perform a transmission fluid flush. This service is where our certified technicians will completely flush the system, inspect the transmission pan and pan gasket, check the fluid level and add in fresh fluid. After a transmission flush, you’ll notice improved handling and performance on the road. The benefit is that your engine won’t have to work as hard once transmission problems are fixed.
How Should I Care For My System?
The team at our CDJR service center is here to offer you tips on how to care for your system and avoid unnecessary transmission repairs. In addition to following the recommended maintenance schedule, there are also some actions you can take to prevent frequent automatic transmission service.
Inspect the Fluid Level: In between service visits, it’s important to check not only the fluid level, but also the appearance of the fluid. If the fluid is dark and cloudy, it’s likely you need to schedule a transmission fluid flush at our service center. Other signs that you need a transmission fluid exchange is when you smell burnt fluid.
Care for Your Cooling System: Your system works in conjunction with your cooling system. The cooling system helps to keep the fluid at the right temperature. In between service visits, check to make sure you have the right amount of coolant in your vehicle. Low levels can not only affect the transmission, but also other working parts of your engine.
Take Note of Your Driving Habits: How you drive directly affects the timeline for transmission service. If you hover your foot over the brake pedal too often, this pressure can strain not only the engine, but also the transmission.
Schedule Inspections: The best way to avoid unnecessary auto repairs is to stay on top of routine maintenance. At each service visit, our CDJR service team inspects all working parts of your vehicle. If you’ve noticed a decrease in fuel efficiency or an odd smell from the fluid, let us know and we’ll determine if you need transmission service sooner rather than later.
