When the transmission in your truck fails, it’s typically a gradual process. If you know what to look out for, there are telltale signs that something is wrong before you end up on the side of the road. Regular transmission checks and fluid inspections are crucial to getting the most mileage from your drive line. Transmissions are made up of many small moving parts, and it only takes one part malfunctioning to put you in some serious trouble.
Transmission fluid is the lifeblood of your truck’s drive train. If the quality of your transmission fluid is compromised, it will only be a matter of time before you start noticing shifting problems. Keeping your trans fluid topped up and doing regular filter changes will help you avoid costly transmission repairs down the road.
The constant heavy cargo loads and rough terrain are hard on any transmission. Add to that the volume of miles you clock each day, and you’ve got a recipe for transmission disaster. You don’t want to wait until it’s too late to fix a transmission problem, when the repair could have been done quickly and affordably.
