Your car uses many different fluids to keep itself running smoothly, it’s often easy to get them confused or have difficulty prioritizing them. Your transmission fluid, however, should be at the top of the list as one to not ignore. The team of professionals at Eastgate Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram are here to make sure that the transmission fluid is not ignored by offering this service.
Your automatic transmission is made up of too many parts to count. Each part needs to be properly lubricated in transmission fluid so it can run as needed and stay cool. In essence, it helps your car to easily shift gears when accelerating, going up hills, things like that. Your transmission fluid, like all fluids, will eventually become dirty and contaminated with debris. When this happens, it is forced to work harder - making it run warmer - and inevitably if left alone too long, cause break down and an expensive repair.
Symptoms of Faulty Transmission Fluid
Are your gears having issue shifting? Maybe going uphill your RPMs are nearing the red line and staying there. You can always feel when your car shifts - if it suddenly is taking longer than usual, you may need your transmission fluid checked out.
Vehicle surges? Dirty transmission fluid can cause your car to randomly surge due to the inconsistent clean fluid.
Delayed vehicle movement
Strange grinding noises while you drive
Transmission Fluid Exchange Intervals
