Transmission Service and Repair in Greenville, SC
Environmental factors, general wear and tear, and direct damage can all have a negative impact on the transmission's health. There is a gauge that tells you when your vehicle is low on gas, and there is a gauge that tells you when it is low on oil, but there is no gauge that tells you when it is time to service your transmission. That's something you are going to have to remember to check.
If your vehicle starts making clunking or grinding notices while shifting, or if you notice small puddles of transmission fluid under your vehicle, or if you notice a burnt smell, these may be signs your transmission needs to be looked at by a professional. Having your transmission serviced at the first sign of an issue, can often mean the difference between a repair job and a full replacement.
Transmission fluid should be changed every 30,000 miles to 100,000 miles depending on the type of transmission and the manufacturer's recommendations. CVT transmissions need to be serviced more frequently than standard transmissions. CVT transmissions are commonly found in Jeep, Nissan, Chrysler, Mitsubishi, Toyota, and Subaru. Audi, Chevrolet, Hyundai, and Lexus on certain models also may have CVT transmissions.
