Make It A Smooth Transition
When you position yourself behind the steering wheel, turn the ignition key, shift the gear lever into "D" and press down on the accelerator pedal, you expect your car to move forward. If this is not happening, chances are it's a little late for preventative maintenance on your transmission.
The technicians at Kipling Car & Truck Service take the maintenance of automatic transmissions very seriously.
They know that regularly adjusting the bands and replacing the filter and fluid will ensure your transmission is cooperative when you ask it to propel your car forward, or to move it backward. And it won't wake your neighbours in the process. With our tender loving care, your transmission will operate smoothly - and quietly too.
You yourself can help to keep your transmission happy. Here are a few good driving tips to extend the life of your vehicle's transmission:
- Don't shift from Drive or Reverse to Park while the car is moving. Always bring it to a stop, and then shift.
- Check your fluid regularly. If you notice darkening in colour or if you see black specs in it, let's check things out right away, before it becomes a big problem.
- If you do any towing with your vehicle, pay careful attention to the gears you use. Generally, you will want to avoid Overdrive. Adding a transmission fluid cooler to maintain the correct temperature may also be advisable.
