Unlike your oil, which needs to be changed a few times a year, your transmission only needs to be changed and flushed every 30,000 to 60,000 miles—sooner if you drive commercially. Your vehicle owner’s manual will provide you with guidelines for the suggested mileage. However, you must also keep your eye out for signs that something is awry. Here are a few indicators that it’s time to stop by Silver Lake Auto & Tire Centers in Hartland for a transmission repair:
It could be oil or transmission fluid but either way you need to get it checked.
Your clutch should shift into gear with ease. If it is sticking, jammed, or takes force to shift into gear, schedule your appointment ASAP.
If you hear or feel grinding, shaking, or any new noises something is wrong with your transmission or engine.
If you have a burning smell your transmission lines may be overheating or leaking.
You may not yet have any of the warning signs above, but if your transmission light comes on—it is time to stop by Silver Lake Auto & Tire Centers to run a diagnostic check.
