When it comes to car service in general, there are two main paths that owners typically follow: proactive or reactive. Reactive maintenance often puts you in a situation where you’re spending much more time and money on your vehicle than necessary because you’re waiting until the last minute (or potentially later) to resolve an issue that’s come up in your Chevrolet vehicle. Proactive maintenance will save you money and time on service, and puts your vehicle in a much better position to achieve maximum longevity. The best way to proactively maintain your Chevrolet’s transmission is to schedule transmission fluid exchanges in accordance with your owner’s manual and the Chevrolet recommended service intervals. Schedule yours online today with Raceway Chevrolet of Bethlehem.
As always, the smartest way to stay on top of transmission fluid exchanges – or any service, for that matter – is by checking your owner’s manual to see what the manufacturer has to say. Most manufacturers may recommend exchanging your transmission fluid every two years or 30,000 miles, but it all depends on your model of Chevrolet vehicle. Otherwise, there are signs of transmission dysfunction that indicate your transmission is in need of a fluid exchange service:
When you don’t properly, proactively maintain your Chevrolet’s transmission, you’re leaving an extremely sensitive, expensive component of your vehicle subject to serious damage. Your transmission fluid lubricates your transmission system, making sure that each gear change is as smooth as the last and preventing damage that can occur when the metal parts of your transmission bang into each other. When it becomes worn out, it can lead to corrosion in your system, and provides less protection for metal-on-metal contact. This leaves your vehicle’s transmission prone to serious damage, which can eventually result in transmission failure that necessitates a transmission replacement service. Just stay on top of your transmission fluid exchanges, and give your transmission the protection it needs to stay in great condition for as long as possible.
