TIPS FOR KEEPING YOUR TRANSMISSION HEALTHY

A strong case can be made for the battery being the hardest working part in your vehicle as it’s single-handedly responsible for starting your engine and powering your electrical systems. While that’s true, an equally powerful case can be made for your transmission being your car’s most important component.

That’s because your transmission is solely responsible for switching gears and sending the appropriate amount of power to each wheel. With your wheels being the only components that keep your vehicle in contact with the road, the importance of your transmission cannot be overstated. For this reason, it’s important to schedule Jeep® service to keep your transmission in good condition.

Signs That Indicate Your Transmission Needs Jeep Service
You don’t need to ask, “Is there a Jeep dealership near me where I can learn the signs that indicate my transmission needs the attention of a professional?” because we’re about to tell you what they are. The warning signs you should keep an eye out for include:

  • Difficulty or the inability to change gears
  • Leaking transmission fluid
  • Burning smell
  • Illuminated check engine light
  • Gears that slip
  • Strange noises like grinding
  • Stubborn clutch

Tips to Maintain Your Transmission
When you look through the latest Jeep models at our location, you’ll see compelling vehicles like the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Jeep Wrangler. Even if you decide to buy or lease a new Jeep SUV or truck, it’s important to mind your transmission right from the start.

In addition to bringing your vehicle to our Jeep service center for transmission service as needed, there are a few other things you can do to maintain your transmission. One of the easiest things you can do is to ensure the system has enough transmission fluid. If you’re going to top off the reservoir, you should pick up some transmission fluid in our Pomeroy, OH Jeep parts department.

Here are a few other things you can do:

  • Let your vehicle warm up before you start driving
  • Refrain from riding the brake
  • Resist changing gears until your car reaches a full stop if you have an automatic transmission
  • Replace your spare tire as soon as possible if you’re currently using it
