Your Transmission System and Transmission Fluid

transmission fluid exchange

The automotive transmission delivers torque to each drive wheel by selecting the perfect gear given the driver’s desired speed and terrain. An automatic transmission does this automatically by using sensors, computerized control unit, torque converter, and hydraulic controls. The manual transmission system is far less complex technologically and requires the driver to select the gear despite how it might be less efficient than the gear selected by an automatic transmission. No matter if you have an automatic or manual transmission system, they all function at their best with fresh Transmission Fluid. If you are due for a transmission fluid exchange service because your vehicle is at the maintenance service interval or if you have any of the warning signs of poor Transmission Fluid, fixing the problem is convenient and price-effective with a Transmission Fluid Exchange & Cleanse Service at Travers Premier Auto Service of Florissant & O’Fallon, Missouri.
