Periodic transmission maintenance is obligatory to keep your car running smoothly and efficiently. A number of services should be executed during routine transmission maintenance to guarantee the mechanisms are correctly oiled and in good and solid form. It's suggested to have these services performed every 30,000 miles. If routine maintenance has been devotedly executed as per recommendation, the drainage of old fluid for the duration of this process should be sufficient.
Replacement of the Pan Gasket
One of the main steps to routine transmission maintenance is to swap the pan gasket. This gasket is situated around the rim or lip of the transmission pan. The pan gasket can get damaged and fractured with the passage of time, leading to transmission fluid leaks. Loss of transmission fluid can be the root cause for the car to shift incorrectly, which may lead to doubtful driving conditions or other mechanical glitches. Once that is done, the gasket can be swapped quite effortlessly, and the part itself is comparatively economical. If the existing gasket is reusable, of high quality and not impaired, it may be then it may be possible to clean it off and simply put it back.
Cleaning and Removal of Any Grime
Buildup of fluid, dirt and grime can cause problems as well. Part of a routine transmission maintenance in NJ is removal and cleanup of any of this sludge. All parts should be wiped free of any debris that has collected over time. This cleanup includes the transmission pan, gasket, if necessary, sealing surface, transmission case and any fluid that may have dripped on the exhaust system while performing the job.
Replacing the Transmission Filter
The transmission filter and the old seal, if likely, will need to be replaced. Clogged or dirty transmission filters will cause stress and wear on a transmission. Replacement of this filter is one of the important parts of transmission maintenance, but may be easily overlooked. Like the pan gasket, this is a relatively easy and inexpensive replacement and should be taken care of while the transmission pan is off.
Since much of the transmission fluid was cleaned out and drained during the process of replacing filters and gaskets, fluid volumes will need to be returned to factory recommended levels. This is usually done via the dipstick tube located near the engine, and of course performed after all necessary components are replaced and the transmission is bolted back to the vehicle. It's highly recommended to follow manufacturer guidelines when selecting replacement transmission fluid.
