Protecting Your Transmission

Your transmission, in most cases, is the second most expensive repair. But here is the good news. If you start with a well-built transmission, you can completely avoid this costly repair. Here’s how.

  1. Pay attention to any leaks and get them addresses promptly.
  2. Have the fluid level and CONDITION of fluid checked 3-4 times per year. Sallas Auto Repair checks the condition and levels of your fluids with every oil change.
  3. Be a better driver! Don’t bunny hop lights. Don’t tow past the vehicle’s capacity.
  4. Have a transmission flush completely every 30,000 miles. A transmission fluid change is not as efficient as a flush and can leave some old fluid and metal shavings in the system promoting damage.
