Taking Proper Care Of Your Transmission

While transmissions are extremely complicated, and it takes a professional hand to work on one, taking care of the one you have isn’t difficult. At R.C. Bratcher, Inc in Owensboro, we understand the importance of caring for your transmission properly, so that it stays in good condition for as long as possible.

Transmissions are tough when used correctly but can be sensitive when abused. Always make sure you come to a complete stop before changing in or out of drive or reverse, to avoid unnecessary wear and stress on your transmission. Don’t tow excessive loads with your vehicle either; it’s important to only two within the manufacturer recommended specifications. Avoid driving patterns that encourage hard shifting, like excessive acceleration that causes constant downshifts.

Most importantly, take care to maintain your transmission at proper intervals and whenever a problem arises. Keep the fluid clean and at the correct level, don’t skip on the transmission filter, and have any sort of odd behavior diagnosed as soon as possible.
