When it comes to transmissions, your fluid level is essential. Too much or too little fluid can affect pressure, cooling abilities, and lubrication. In order to best care for your vehicle, it's important to know what to look for, so from our shop here at Integrity Transmission & Auto Service Center here are a few tips.
Checking your transmission fluid is obviously important. With the vehicle running and at operating temperature, pull the dipstick and check the level. If it’s low, add appropriately, then check it again. This simple task may very well save you from total transmission failure. A transmission without the right amount of fluid won’t last long.
Your coolant level is also important to the function of your transmission. Like the engine, the transmission has to stay at a certain temperature to operate correctly, and if it gets too hot, the damage will occur. Transmission fluid runs through the radiator to cool off, and engine heat is dissipated into the transmission as well. Keeping your cooling system in good shape is vital to keeping your transmission going strong.
Make sure you consult your vehicle's manual for specific procedures on how to check your coolant and how to check your transmission fluid, as well as adding fluid to these systems. It’ll also specify fluid types, which is necessary to know before you add anything. Our technicians always check your levels during regular maintenance - but it never hurts to check in between.
