Transmission Maintenance Checklist

Car Maintenance

This Transmission Maintenance Checklist includes eight steps to help keep your vehicle's transmission in good condition. The first step is to check the transmission fluid level and color. The fluid should be at the proper level and a clear, reddish color. Next, look for any signs of leaks around the transmission and check the transmission filter for wear or damage. Inspect the transmission pan for damage or leaks and check the transmission mount for wear. Make sure the transmission linkage is properly adjusted and functioning correctly. Finally, take the vehicle for a test drive to ensure the transmission is shifting smoothly and there are no unusual noises or vibrations. By following this checklist every day, you can help avoid costly repairs and keep your vehicle running smoothly.
