Because transmission fluid loses effectiveness gradually, replacing your transmission fluid regularly may lengthen the life of the transmission itself and help you avoid some transmission troubles. Jensen Tire & Auto provides quality and affordable transmission service.
What transmission fluid does: Transmission fluid coats and protects the gears in the transmission of your vehicle. This helps protect against too much wear and slipping of the gears. This is why it is imperative that a transmission fluid flush be completed every 30,000 miles.
Why transmission service is important: Transmission fluid loses effectiveness gradually. Changing your transmission fluid at routine periods at Jensen Tire & Auto may lengthen the life of the transmission and protect against particular transmission problems.

Auto Repair FAQ

Should I use synthetic oil?
Some manufacturers recommend using synthetic oil in their vehicles. Be sure to check your owner’s manual to determine if is recommended for your vehicle.
Why change transmission fluid?
Transmission fluid is an internal lubricant just like engine motor oil. During certain driving conditions and mileage intervals, transmission fluid, because of wear and age, can break down and become contaminated. This may result in costly transmission repairs and possibly the need for replacement. As a general rule the transmission fluid and, in some instances, the transmission filter should be replaced at 25,000-mile intervals. You should always consult your vehicle's Owner's Manual for recommended service intervals.
When should my belts be changed?
You should begin checking your vehicle's belts at 20,000 miles. Things to look for include cracks, splits, glazing, peeling, greasy buildup, and splitting or missing sections. It you notice any of these conditions you should arrange to have all of your vehicle's belts simultaneously changed out. If a serpentine belt breaks, many other components including your vehicle's alternator, water pump, power steering, etc., will not function, resulting in further damage and costly repairs.
