CARE TIPS FOR AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION

Using the right type of transmission fluid

Check your transmission fluid periodically

On many light trucks, cars, and SUVs, checking the transmission fluid is very easy. It is just like checking the oil of the vehicle. While checking, if the fluid level is low, it might have a leak. And, the fluid should be clear and bright red color. If it’s murky and dark-colored, that is a sign that the fluid needs to be replaced or that the clutches inside are burnt.

Change the transmission filter from time-to-time

Your car’s automatic transmission may have a filter, and you need to change it from time-to-time. Most of the latest vehicles don’t have a transmission filter, but those that do, need to be changed regularly.

Have your engine’s cooling system serviced

The vehicle’s cooling system helps in preventing the engine and transmission from overheating. Make sure the engine’s cooling system is in ideal conditions. If the car’s cooling system does not work properly it could lead to bigger problems.
