Understand Your Car's Transmission

Every driver knows that a vehicle’s engine produces the power needed to move a vehicle. Most drivers don’t understand the crucial role that the transmission plays in the process. Simply put, a transmission transfers the power from the vehicle’s engine to its wheels. A vehicle’s power needs vary depending on the speed; starting a car from a dead stop is different than accelerating on the highway. A vehicle’s transmission adjusts the gear ratios to make sure that the engine is delivering power to the wheels efficiently.

Most manufacturers recommend changing transmission fluid based on a schedule or after a specified number of miles driven. Scheduling regular transmission service ensures that your vehicle will run smoothly and efficiently. Not sure if your transmission is overdue for service?
