How To Avoid Transmission Failure

At Alvie's Transmission Service Unlimited in Jacksonville, FL, we know that hearing you need a new transmission is a dreaded affair. Here’s some advice from the transmission experts on how to prevent that day from coming.

Firstly, go easy on your transmission. Avoid hard acceleration, abrupt shifting, and shifting into drive, reverse, or park while your vehicle is still in motion. If you practice driving techniques that are good for your transmission, you significantly decrease the likelihood of a transmission failure.

Most importantly, keep your transmission maintained by qualified professionals. Improper maintenance and repair will permanently damage a transmission. Neglecting a malfunctioning transmission or ignoring maintenance will destroy one in short order. If something is broken, a warning light is illuminated, or the transmission is shifting hard, slipping, hesitant to go into gear, or otherwise misbehaving, have it inspected and repaired immediately. Be sure to have the fluid checked and replaced at regular intervals, as well as the transmission filter. Keep your fluid level within specifications, not too low, and not too high. A properly maintained transmission will typically outlast the engine, but one that is neglected doesn’t stand a chance.

For all your transmission repair and maintenance needs, trust our professional mechanics at Alvie's Transmission Service Unlimited to keep your transmission reliable and shifting smoothly. No matter what car, truck, or SUV you drive, our technicians know how to properly care for your transmission. Call or come by today.
