Transmission…..what comes to mind for most people is the mechanism in your automobile that helps shift your vehicle from one gear to another. It is very important!
A transmission service is part of your routine maintenance, just like replacing your engine oil. New fluid restores the holding power between the clutches, reducing slip and heat production. At the same time, flushing the old fluid washes away tiny particles of clutch material and metal shavings.
Your transmission has many parts that work together– the four most important parts for you to know about are the bell housing, gears, transmission fluid and the filter.
The bell housing is a cone-shaped metal case underneath your vehicle. Unless your car is involved in an accident, the bell housing very seldom needs repair, as its main function is a case for the transmission itself.
Although the automatic transmission changes gears for you, they still have to be changed. The gears are broken into main gears and planetary gears, and all need to work properly for your vehicle is to move. Damaged or worn gears can cause various problems and may necessitate a repair or rebuild.
Transmission fluid is perhaps the most important part of automatic transmission. Failure to maintain adequate levels of fluid will result in many transmission problems. Fluid leaks cause various problems and are one of the most common types of transmission repairs.
The transmission fluid filter helps your car’s automatic transmission fluid to stay clean in order to help prevent wear and tear on the gears and other moving parts. Periodically changing your transmission fluid filter will help you avoid many common repairs as well.
