Rebuilt Transmissions – Preventative Maintenance
Clackamas and S.E. Portland OR
Transmissions undergo an incredible amount of wear and tear over the years, so it is crucial for drivers to take care of preventative maintenance. Most manufacturers recommend that transmissions be serviced between 30,000 and 60,000 miles. During those service calls, the mechanic will:
- Inspect the entire powertrain
- Flush the transmission fluid
- Change the filter
A modern transmission that is regularly serviced will run smoothly for years. Preventative maintenance is especially important for older cars and vehicles that are pushed to the limit.
Transmission Flush & Fluid Change
Some vehicles need to have their transmissions flushed once every 15,000 miles, but most vehicles are closer to the 50,000 mile mark. The best way to maintain a transmission and extend its lifespan is to fully flush and replace the fluid. Transmissions don’t have fluid plugs which means the oil pans must be removed entirely to drain the fluid. A driver’s handbook always contains comprehensive information regarding regular maintenance.
