Unfortunately, auto shops report that many vehicle owners don’t think about their vehicle’s transmission until they find themselves broken down on the side of the road. Transmission repair can be very costly, so take the initiative by scheduling a transmission service before you start noticing problems, such as gears slipping, jerky shifting, or an overheating transmission.

Compared to the cost of a major transmission repair, taking care of basic service items is relatively inexpensive and easy to schedule. So what does transmission service include? Here is a list of basic transmission service items:

  • Manual transmissions will need to have the clutch pedal inspected and adjusted frequently,
  • For all vehicles, mechanics may recommend an inspection of the transmission fluid at least once a year. It may just need to be topped off or depending on its condition, it may need to be completely flushed,
  • The sump pump or pan should be inspected and cleaned,
  • The filter should either be cleaned or replaced as needed, and
  • The pan gasket should be replaced.

If you are facing a major transmission repair, your mechanic can clarify the following issues before starting work:

  • Is the transmission still covered under the manufacturer’s warranty, and if so, does it cover parts and labor, or just parts?
  • If you have an older car with lots of miles, is the value worth the cost of the transmission repair.
  • Is the repair only buying you a little time until the next breakdown, or will it provide many more years of trouble-free operation?
  • Are there options for transmission repair that vary in cost and longevity? Here are a few options to ask about; install a new transmission, a rebuilt one, or a remanufactured transmission. Chose the transmission repair option that best suits your budget and time.

A word of advice: It is smart to check the level of transmission fluid regularly (such as at every oil change or tire rotation). It may only need to be topped off, off, or flushed. It is important to understand that transmission in tip-top conditions is crucial for the operation of your vehicle.
