Nashville, TN, September 21, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Auto transmissions are designed to give years of trouble free service but do you know there are ways to extend the life of your transmission?
Nashville, TN transmission repair specialist, Grisham’s Transmission Center (http://www.transmissionrepairnashvilletn.com) says there are and drivers who take the right steps can add many years to the life of their auto transmissions.
Harold Grisham, owner of Grisham’s Transmission Center said transmission overhaul or replacement is one of the most expensive undertakings any driver or vehicle owner can face so it is important that drivers are doing the right things to help their transmissions last longer.
“It is very expensive to replace or overhaul a car’s transmission so it is important that vehicle owners and drivers know what to do to ensure their transmissions last longer,” he said earlier today in his office in Nashville, TN.
Grisham said the problem is that most vehicle owners and drivers are not aware of these things.
“That is the problem. Most vehicle owners and drivers do not know about these simple things or they are simply not doing them. I will guarantee anybody that if they will follow these simple steps, their transmissions will last a lot longer,” he added.
According to the Nashville transmission specialist, vehicle owners need to service their auto transmissions regularly.
“Auto transmission is one of those things most drivers do not bother with as long as the car runs but that is a dangerous thing to do. It is better to have a transmission repair professional service your transmission at regular intervals than have your car break down. Once your transmission breaks down, you have a problem,” Grisham said.
He added that vehicle owners should avoid situations that may add unnecessary stress on their auto transmissions.
“Carrying heavy loads, towing a trailer, or constantly being in stop and go traffic are all hard on your transmission. If you must subject your transmission to this stress, consider a transmission cooler to keep the transmission from overheating. Also let your car warm up before driving. Fluid should be at the proper temperature before moving to extend the life of your transmission,” he said.
The Nashville transmission service expert urged vehicle owners to listen to the sound of their transmission and change the fluid on time.
“Be aware of performance problems. Grinding or whining noises, poor shifting and slipping are all signs of potential problems. Have them checked out before they do even more damage. Change the transmission fluid as recommended. Your owner’s manual gives recommendations for changing fluid and servicing the transmission,” Grisham added.
