What is a Transmission Service?
Servicing your transmission can range from regularly scheduled maintenance work to more inclusive repair, depending upon the state of your car. More routine service checks include a transmission fluid exchange where your transmission fluid is drained and replaced with new fluid to keep the gears running properly. Additionally, a transmission filter replacement is performed where a new filter is installed to keep the transmission clean.

Why You Need to Service Your Transmission
A car’s transmission is crucial to the overall health of the vehicle. It is responsible for directing power from the engine to the wheels, shifting gears, and ultimately enabling the car to move. A transmission that isn’t functioning properly could cause your car to be unresponsive to your gas pedal, resulting in high RPMs and an inability to switch gears correctly.
While the transmission is complex, regular service can keep it healthy.
