Automatic transmissions in today’s modern vehicles are not only very complicated, they are also connected to the vehicles onboard computer system which sends information to the transmission control module to help your vehicle work more efficiently.
Automatic transmissions are expansive to replace, so all transmission problems should never be ignored. Some transmission repairs, such as replacing automatic transmission fluid or sealing a leak, can be done quickly and at little expense and they should always be checked and done as part of your vehicles routine maintenance.
Over time the transmission fluid inside the transmission burns and starts to decrease. By doing so, the transmission starts to lose lubrication and starts to leave deposits inside the transmission itself. If not serviced on a regular basis these deposits will start to create issues and cause your transmission to fail.
Just like an engine, the automatic transmission should be serviced and maintained on intervals provided in the vehicles manufacturers hand book. Paying attention to you transmission will help increase the lifespan of your vehicle, save money on costly repairs, and extend your transmission fluid's life, and help prevent leaks and breakdowns.
