How To Keep Your Car’s Transmission In Good Shape

The car transmission is an important part of our car. If we want our car to be able to drive, the transmission has to be in good shape. In order to keep the transmission in good shape, there are a few things that will really make a big difference. Here are a few ways to keep your car’s transmission in good shape.

Stop Before Shifting

When you are putting your car into reverse, it is important to come to a complete stop before you shift from park into reverse or drive into reverse. Not stopping completely before reversing will put a strain on the gears that could’ve easily been prevented.

Avoid Riding the Brake

It might seem safer to drive with your foot on the brake in case you have to brake promptly, but it can actually do more harm than good. When you ride the brake, it can cause the transmission to work harder than it should. Keep your foot on the gas pedal and only use the break pedal when it’s needed.

Check Your Fluid

The transmission fluid and engine oil should be checked regularly, but are seldom done when they are supposed to be. It is important to check your car transmission so it doesn’t lead to expensive repairs.

Routine Car Maintenance

It is important to go in for routine car maintenance in order to keep your car transmission in good shape. Without maintenance, it can lead to costly repairs which could’ve been taken care of had the car gone in for maintenance.

Are you in need of transmission repair in Oklahoma City, OK? Call the experts at A&A Transmission at 405-350-6600 to get your transmission looked at.

Signs of a Damaged Transfer Case

Found in four-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive vehicles, the transfer case transfers power from the transmission to your axles. When it develops a problem, you might have trouble switching between two- and four-wheel-drive. Watch out for these signs of a failing or damaged transfer case.

Shifting Gears is Difficult
Is shifting gears difficult? This could be due to a fluid leak or other problem. Whether you shift automatically or manually, inspect your vehicle for signs of a fluid leak. You should also check to make sure the transmission fluid is not burnt. New transmission fluid should be a translucent reddish color, and dark brown means you need it replaced right away.

You Hear Grinding Noises
Grinding noises are never a good sign, especially if they are coming from under your vehicle. This likely indicates that parts are rubbing together due to lack of lubricant. If you have a fluid leak, you need to get your car to an auto shop right away. No one wants to destroy their transmission!

Jumping In and Out of 4WD
If your car switches in and out of four-wheel-drive when it shouldn’t, you should inspect your transfer case as soon as possible. This is often due to broken parts or a significant leak. If you see a reddish fluid beneath your vehicle, this is most likely transmission fluid. Bring your car in to a certified mechanic right away to prevent further damage to your transmission and transfer case.

Have you noticed any of these signs of a damaged transfer case? If you suspect a problem with your transfer case, call A&A Transmission today at 405-350-6600 for transfer case repair in Oklahoma City, OK!
