What Is the Transmission?

You’ve undoubtedly heard of a transmission on a car. But, if you’re not a self-proclaimed gear head, then you might be wondering, what does a transmission do? Simply put, the transmission distributes power among the tires evenly no matter what drivetrain the vehicle is. This creates a smoother driving experience on the Cedar Park roads and helps your tires last longer. When the gears shift, the engine and transmission disconnect so that they can adjust to a new drive position. 

With an automatic transmission, the transmission senses this change and automatically adjusts the distribution of torque to accelerate smoother when you step on the gas. As you can see, the transmission is vital to keeping your vehicle running like new. How much is a transmission if you need a new one? This will depend on the type of vehicle you have, but you can expect to pay anywhere between $1,800 to $3,400. 

Increasing Your Transmission’s Lifespan

Now that you know how much the transmission is to replace and what it does for your vehicle, let’s go over some ways to properly take care of your transmission. While replacing it is unavoidable, you can help increase the overall lifespan of your transmission by following these tips: 

  • Check the transmission fluid to see if it’s low or dirty. You should check the transmission manually once a month or schedule service at Nyle Maxwell Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram to have it checked for you. 
  • Follow your vehicle’s recommended maintenance schedule. If you’re uncertain about your vehicle’s maintenance schedule, then consult your owner’s manual, but most transmission service is recommended around every 30,000 miles. 
  • Your vehicle’s transmission has a filter that traps dirt and debris, but adding a second filter in the cooler line will work even better to keep your transmission fluid cleaner for a longer period.
