Your vehicle's automatic transmission creates a lot of internal heat through friction. This friction is caused by the fluid churning inside the torque converter, when the clutch plates engage, and the normal friction created by gears and bearings carrying their loads.
Automatic transmissions are more difficult to diagnose than manual transmissions. If the transmission is slipping, shifting oddly, making noise, won't go into a particular gear, etc., the list of possible causes runs the gamut from low transmission fluid to a faulty pump, solenoid, valve body or controller.
Did you know that 90% of ALL transmission failures are caused by overheating? Most of these can be blamed on worn out fluid that should have been replaced. Don't let worn out fluid hurt your transmission.
Simcoe County Chrysler recommends that your have your transmission inspected annually and fluid changed as required. Bring your vehicle into our auto body shop in Orillia, Ontario and get your automatic transmission serviced today!
