In order to keep your vehicle running efficiently and smoothly, routine transmission maintenance is a must. A fixed number of services are required to be performed to make sure the transmission maintenance is complete.

To find out any major issues, lift inspections are necessary. Gaskets and filters will point out any minor fixes that are necessary.

Auto experts advise going for such a service after every couple of years or 30,000 miles, whichever happens first. Unless your vehicle’s transmission maintenance is overdue, total transmission flush will not be necessary. Besides, grim or sludge buildup, or burnt color or smell of the old fluid means it’s time for a full flush. The replacement of old fluid and simple drainage would be well-enough, if the transmission has been undergoing routinely performed scheduled maintenance from before.

Changing the Pan Gasket

Routine transmission maintenance starts with the replacement of the pan gasket. The location of the gasket is the lip or rim of the transmission pan. As time goes by, the pan gasket could be cracked and worn, which effectively leads to leaks. When your car loses transmission fluids, it shifts improperly, paving the way for critical mechanical issues and safety issues. You can easily replace the gasket just by lowering the transmission; and, in comparison to other car parts the gasket is quite cheap. Simply clean the existing gasket if it’s not so cracked or damaged, or seems to be in a good condition.

Transmission Fluid

While replacing gaskets and filters, the transmission fluid will drain out. So after every maintenance job, you need to get it back to the optimum level. Use the dipstick tube around the engine to refill fluids. Perform this action when everything is back in position and you have bolted back the transmission.

    I have a Toyota pick up truck and the service company said every 40,000 KM you should change the transmission fluid which is fine, but the problem is should you use the vacuum system to suck out all fluid which would be about 12quarts or just removed the lines under the radiator and just replaced that amount which drains naturally which is about 4 quarts.

    There is no doubt that without proper maintenance car couldn’t run smoothly. Transmission is an important component of the vehicle which needs maintenance at a regular interval like other components of the vehicle. Use of clogged transmission filter could affects the performance of the transmission in a very adverse way. So, the condition of transmission filter needs to be inspected after certain time interval and if clogged or damaged, then should be replaced with suitable substitutes.

    It’s great that you elaborated on the different things you should do to maintain your transmission. I never knew that there was a transmission filter for the fluid and that you had to change it. My transmission has been acting up recently and slipping; I will be sure to talk about this when I visit the mechanic.

    I appreciate your suggestion to inspect the condition of different components of the transmission along with lubricant used in it. By doing so, we could identify abnormal components of the transmission and repair such components with suitable substitutes. Apart from this, fluid used in the transmission for the purpose of lubrication needs regular inspection and degraded fluid should be replaced with suitable substitutes.

    Transmission is one of the important component in a vehicle. So we should maintain it properly. Transmission fluid plays a major role in transmission. So, it should be inspected at regular intervals, every 15,000 miles generally. We should use the right kind of transmission fluid. Our car’s transmission should be flushed regularly. We shouldn’t change gears while the car is moving. Along with transmission fluid all other components of transmission should be inspected properly and if any component is found to be damaged, it should be repaired immediately.

    Thanks for the advice for transmission repair. I like how you said that most experts say it’s smart to get it checked out every 30,000 miles. We’ve never had ours even looked at, so I’m sure it needs maintenance pretty badly.
