10 Helpful Tips to Keep Your Transmission Running Smoothly

Transmission repairs can get very expensive, very quickly. These maintenance tips can help you avoid those repairs and increase the longevity of your transmission.


Check your transmission fluid level regularly. You can refer to your vehicle's owner's manual, or bring your car or truck to us for fast assistance.


If you suspect a problem with your transmission, call Best Transmission as soon as possible to avoid escalation.


Have your transmission regularly serviced by one of our transmission repair experts.


Check with us to see if any transmission fluid additives can help extend the life of your transmission.


Have your transmission fluid changed at least once every two years or 30,000 miles.


In cold weather, give your vehicle time to warm up before putting it into gear.


Come to a complete stop before changing from drive to reverse or from reverse to drive.


Repair engine-overheating issues right away, as excessive heat often leads to engine and transmission failure.


Never drive your vehicle when your transmission fluid is low or leaking.


When parking on a hill or incline, engage your parking (emergency) brake. This practice helps reduce stress on the parking linkage and pin (pawl).

This locally owned transmission shop exceeded my expectations by far!!! The owner is an honest man who has very fair prices and does really good work. All of the employees are respectful and willing to help get you on your way. Without a doubt I would recommend this business to my family and friends even if they were out of town. It's worth traveling for a company that you can trust will give you a very fair price for extremely good work. My Mustang runs like it did when I took her off of the lot and I'm super thankful to these experts. – Robert, Google 5-Stars
