How to Avoid A Costly Transmission Repair

Transmission repair can be costly. It’s one of the most important parts of your car, responsible for converting power from the engine to the tires and shifting from one gear to another. At Keane’s Autoworks we’ve worked on a range of European and American-made vehicles and have considerable experience on both manual and automatic transmissions.

Maintain Fluid Levels to Help Prolong Transmission Repair

After years of normal wear and tear, there might come a day when your car needs a transmission repair. Maintaining proper fluid levels is an easy, low cost way to push that day back by a few years. Transmission fluid is responsible for cooling and lubricating your transmission, ensuring it runs smoothly and without overheating. Failing to maintain fluid levels will cause the transmission to run hotter and wear sooner, which causes the car to shift gears poorly. We recommend periodically checking the fluid levels and topping them off when necessary in order to avoid a costly transmission repair.

Replace Your Transmission Fluid and Filters Periodically

Even though most premature transmission repair is caused by low fluid levels or bad fluids, most dealership service centers won’t ever bother to change it during routine checkups. Fluids contain special additives and other chemicals that protect your transmission. Over time those additives wear off, so replacing the fluid offers your car more protection and lubrication. Transmission fluid can also become contaminated over time by bits of metal scraped off while the gears are grinding. Experts agree that replacing your fluids and filters every 25,000 to 30,000 miles will significantly reduce the chances of an expensive transmission repair.

Increase the Life of Your Car With a High Quality Oil Change

Preventative maintenance is the best way to keep your car on the road for years to come. Your car’s engine is made up of dozens of moving parts, all of which require regular lubrication in order to function properly. So how often should you change the oil in your car? Most car manufacturers suggest a regularly scheduled oil change every 2,000 to 3,000 miles depending on the vehicle and the type of oil (regular or synthetic).

Not Your Average Oil Change

Those big “quick-stop” oil change companies that bombard you with coupons and offer huge savings use cheap oil and inexperienced mechanics to boost their margins. Keane’s Autoworks is a trusted local business that employs only the most experienced and qualified ASE Certified technicians and uses the highest quality motor oil in your car. Included with every oil change we offer a complimentary fluid check and oil filter replacement.
