Transmission service is a critical task for extending the life of your vehicle. Since blown transmissions are a common reason to get rid of a car, it’s important to do preventive maintenance on them. Island Auto Group is at your service for this important task.

Transmission Service Repair - Why It Matters

A good rule of thumb is to get a transmission check or flush roughly every 30,000 miles or about every two years. This goes a long way in keeping your vehicle running. Otherwise, you run a much greater chance of the transmission overheating, and potentially failing altogether.

Aside from maintaining a regular service schedule, how do you know you need transmission service? Well, there are few warning signs that’ll signal potential problems.

  • Your transmission keeps popping out of gear.
  • The shifting seems delayed or uncooperative.
  • You notice a transmission leak.
  • There’s a burning smell when you shift gears.
  • Listen for bad noises like grinding or squealing. That’s usually a sign of metallic friction, which could easily be the transmission.

It’s much better to address these problems preemptively than to let a problem fester. The cost of a new transmission could run you $2,000 or $3,000, depending on your vehicle. You can preserve your car’s life expectancy by visiting Island Auto Group for regular checks.
