Preventative Measures for Transmission Health
Maintenance Tips to Avoid Slipping
- Listen for Unusual Noises: Pay attention to any unusual sounds from your car, especially when shifting gears. Noises like whining or clunking can indicate early transmission problems.
- Monitor Gear Shifting: Be aware of any irregularities in gear shifting, such as delays or abrupt changes.
- Check Warning Lights: Don’t ignore your dashboard warning lights. A lit transmission light requires immediate attention.
- Regular Fluid Checks: Frequently check your transmission fluid levels and quality. Low or dirty fluid can lead to bigger problems.
- Feel for Changes in Performance: Notice any changes in your vehicle’s performance, including slipping, dragging, or jerking during gear changes.
