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.

If you love your car and want to keep it on the road driving strong into the spring, you'll want to consider some routine winter car maintenance. Preventative measures, if taken at the proper time, can help you avoid costly automotive repair in the future.

The first, and most obvious winter maintenance step that needs to be checked off is an oil change. While you're in there, give it a new oil filter as well for the few dollars that will cost you. Oil changes are needed at least twice a year for most regular cars. It makes sense to get one as the seasons change from fall to winter and again from spring to summer. If you missed the fall change, don't wait until the spring to catch up either! Neglecting oil changes is the number one contributor to reduced engine life, worsened fuel economy and eventual engine failure.

if you want to make your car strong through winter, be sure to schedule your quality automotive service at your nearby auto shop before the arrival of winter
