Summer provides a perfect opportunity for drivers to hit the road and enjoy a great trip. For this to happen, your car needs to be in a good running condition. It is interesting to note that most people worry more about their car breaking down in cold weather than in hot weather. However, hot temperatures can wreak havoc on your motor. The best strategy for overcoming common car problems in cold and hot weather is performing regular car maintenance, including transmission service, and keeping a close eye on your vehicle’s performance. For instance, you can avoid the problem of overheating by checking your coolant and avoid driving when the outside temperature is above 100 degrees.

The transmission is the heart and soul of your car. Whenever your vehicle requires transmission repair, whether a replacement or just a minor adjustment, always look for a professional transmission service technician.

The key components of the transmission system include a torque converter, sensors, clutches, planetary gearset, valve body, and pump. Some of the most common transmission repair issues include strange sounds coming from the engine, slipping gears and fluid leakage. For the average driver, the transmission fluid needs to be flushed after 100,000 miles.

The fluid replacement duration depends on the driver’s behavior and the type of terrain you usually use. This critical information is also available in the owner’s manual. Good transmission fluid has a clear red color while a bad one appears dark and smelly. To preserve the fluid, always avoid towing your car on overdrive because this can burn up the transmission. In addition to routine transmission service, protect your car from the summer heat by topping up all the lubricants and coolant, keep the gas cap tight and clean any corrosion on the battery. You also need to make sure your hoses and belts are free of frays and cracks.
