STRANGE SHIFTING BEHAVIOUR?

NOW TO THE PIT STOP AT THE TRANSMISSION SPECIALIST

MAINTENANCE & CARE OF AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSIONS

The professional all-round service for your vehicle

Automatic transmissions are becoming increasingly popular. The still widespread belief that automatic transmissions can do without oil changes is outdated.

The transmission and the oil used are often exposed to difficult conditions: For example, frequent highway driving at higher speeds or a very sporty driving style. This leads to high operating temperatures as well as to significant losses in shifting comfort and ultimately causes increased wear of the transmission oils used.

It is therefore recommended to change the transmission oil after a certain mileage. Simply draining the oil and refilling it is often not enough to clean the transmission of deposits and thus restore the old performance. In this case, the professionals at VAICO Transmission Service recommend carrying out a transmission flush in addition to a professional oil change.

VAICO Transmission service quickly explained.

Lifetime

By maintaining and servicing the transmission, you prevent damage and ensure a longer lifetime.

Driving comfort

The shifting behavior of your car remains as usual and does not jerk. It runs like lubricated.

CONSUMPTION

Clean transmission shifts have a positive effect on fuel consumption.

This is why maintenance is so important for the automatic transmission

Transmission maintenance or regular oil changes are now recommended by many car manufacturers every 60,000 kilometers or every 4 to 6 years. The transmission oil is permanently exposed to mechanical and thermal stresses. The consequences: increased wear and the need for maintenance.

 

If the automatic transmission is not serviced in time, the lubrication and fluidity of the oil will deteriorate and clean shifting is no longer guaranteed. The transmission and engine suffer. If the transmission oil is not replaced in time and dirt and metal abrasion are added, the automatic transmission may have to be replaced! Therefore, take precautions: Have the oil changed depending on your driving performance, driving style and maintenance interval. In addition to an oil change, it may also be advisable to have the transmission flushed as a preventive measure.

When is maintenance required?

At the first symptoms you should react:

 

  • Jerkiness when shifting
  • Increased fuel consumption.
  • Gears do not shift or shift with difficulty
  • Speed fluctuations
  • Missing power delivery on kickdown
  • Vehicle leaks transmission fluid

Recommendation: Transmission maintenance every 60,000 kilometers or every 4 to 6 years!
