Whether your vehicle is manual or automatic, the transmission performs the same essential job-transferring energy. It is located between your vehicle's engine and wheels and allows the changing ratio between engine RPM and driving wheel RPM to meet each unique driving situation. Transmission gears deliver power from the engine to the drive wheels, shifting automatically to provide the best power and efficiency for your driving speed. Lower gears helps the engine turn faster to produce more power, while higher gears allow the engine to run more slowly on long stretches of road.

A vital function to keeping your car working requires regular maintenance.  Unfortunately, the transmission is a complex piece of your car, truck, or SUV and invites a host of problems due to simple wear and tear or poor driving habits. Over time, the additives in transmission fluid can become depleted or contaminated meaning it isn't properly lubricating. Grinding transmission gears can be a huge problem for your vehicle and a big expense for your wallet.

Checking the transmission fluid level on a regular basis will preserve the life of your car's transmission.
