Fluid Leaks Are The Major
An automatic transmission is a hydraulic system that operates
on pressurized oil (fluid). This fluid lubricates the transmission and
applies various friction devices such as (clutches and bands) at specific
times to change gears and transfer power from the engine to the drive
wheels. When the fluid drops below a secure level, lubrication and hydraulic
pressure decrease, causing extreme wear to major transmission components
and in some cases, immediate failure.
Maintain Your Transmission
Anything that has virtually 1,000 parts is expected to be expensive to repair. So investing periodically in replacement of the fluid and filter along with a thorough inspection can only serve to extend the transmissions life and could save you thousands of dollars eventually.
Check Your Fluid Levels!
We recommend you check the fluid about every 3000 miles. If it is low
add the proper type of fluid until it reaches the full mark. Do not
overfill. Although overfilling will probably not do damage because the
transmission will push out any excess through its venting system, that
excess oil could drip onto hot engine or exhaust components perhaps
causing a fire.
The best course of action is to bring the vehicle to SMT and Complete Automotive Care immediately so we can perform a free diagnostic procedure (which includeds a leak check and computer diagnostic).
