What Does the Transmission Do?

An operational transmission is crucial to the overall functioning of your vehicle. In fact, it’s just as important as the engine. So, what does the transmission do, exactly? Simply put, it distributes power from the engine to the appropriate tires. For manual transmissions, the engine and transmission disconnect when you shift gears to adjust to a new drive position. Meanwhile an automatic transmission adjusts torque distribution on its own to enable smoother acceleration on the Saint Clair streets.

How to Lengthen the Life of Your Transmission

When you take on the transmission cost and get a replacement installed, you will naturally want to get the most out of your investment. Take care of your transmission as you travel throughout Port Huron with the following tips.

  • Check transmission fluid. Low or dirty transmission fluid is a common culprit for most transmission issues. Checking transmission fluid is easy to do on your own, or you can rely on Moran Blue Water Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram to do so for you.
  • Keep up with routine maintenance. Unlike oil changes and tire rotations, which are required every 7,500 to 10,000 miles, transmission service is needed much less frequently, about every 30,000 miles. Still, it’s important to keep up with your transmission maintenance, so schedule service in Fort Gratiot to keep your transmission in working order.
  • Add another filter to the cooler line. Your transmission filter captures dirt and debris, and adding a second filter will act as a second line of defense, keeping your transmission fluid cleaner for longer.
