Modern cars and trucks are chock full of complex mechanical systems, but arguably the most complex of them all is the transmission. Your transmission has the challenging task of transmitting mechanical power generated by the engine to the wheels. To do this at different speeds and under different load sizes, with the ability to change gears on the fly – a dizzying array of interconnected gears and wheels all have to work together flawlessly. Over time, like any other mechanical system, wear and tear add up to cause damage- damage that must be mitigated or repaired in some way. The best way to get the most value out of the transmission is with regular care and maintenance. That’s why our team here at Sheehy Volkswagen of Springfield takes transmission inspection and service very seriously.
One of the easiest ways to spot many transmission problems is to exchange the fluid and inspect it sometime later for scorching, leaking, and contamination. Ideally, your transmission mechanic will want to diagnose the problem without having to disassemble the unit. This can often be done by checking the condition of the new fluid after it has been in use for a few days.
