When it comes to summer road trips, there is all sorts of advice flying around relating to servicing your vehicle. A critical issue that is not mentioned very often is transmission service. It's an easy item to check off your list, and not as scary as one might imagine. It is far better to take care of a needed transmission repair with an auto shop that you have learned to trust and one that knows you and your vehicle.

As part of transmission service, the filter and gasket in the transmission pan these should be inspected and changed out every so often (just like the oil filter). Most mechanics will recommend you follow the manufacturers' recommendations for transmission service intervals, though there may be exceptions.

If your vehicle has a transmission dipstick, check your fluid for correct levels and check the color as well (it should be dark red). If the color is dark brown or black, it will need to be changed. Do not panic if you cannot find a transmission dipstick. Some vehicles are not equipped with them and unless you are an experienced home mechanic, ask a transmission repair professional to check the fluid. Sometimes the dark fluid indicates you may have an issue.

Transmission fluid can break down just like engine oil. It will not be effective in lubricating and protecting the the inner parts of the transmission if the quality of the fluid is degraded in any way. This is an inexpensive service that can literally extend the life of your motor and save you money on any future transmission repair costs. The last thing you want is to spend your vacation time in an unknown auto shop and spending your fun money on a major transmission repair.

As Ben Franklin once said, "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure". A few ounces of transmission fluid is definitely more preferable than paying for a new transmission.
