The transmission is one of the most important parts of the vehicle. Between the manual and automatic systems, the automatic is the most popular due to its ease of use. However, the automatic can be easy to break and very expensive to replace, and without it the vehicle is not going anywhere. This is why routine transmission service is so important. It is important for the vehicle owner to know which components should be inspected during a transmission service.

The first and foremost thing that should be checked is the transmission fluid. Though it seems like a simple task, the fluid level, color, and even the smell can all determine the condition of the transmission. Foul odor and discoloration are indicators of a potential transmission repair issue. For cars that are being considered for purchase, one with bad transmission fluid is like a waving red flag. Road tests for both automatic and manual vehicles are also conducted to test for poor shifting, noise, slipping, choppiness, etc.

Some of the most common parts inspected include the neutral switch, engine RPM, throttle linkage, modulators, mounts, U-joints, fluid retention, and electronic controls. All of these parts must stay serviced and functioning in order for the vehicle to remain in operation. As the vehicle owner, it is important to know which parts are going to be serviced. Knowing which questions to ask and making sure nothing was overlooked can save a lot of money in preventing a future failure and a major transmission repair.
