The transmission is one of the most expensive parts of the car. Protecting them against the damage caused by cold weather will prevent costly repairs and replacement down-the-line. As a mechanical system that is responsible for shifting gears, the car transmission utilizes transmission fluid for smooth movement of its internal parts. This fluid functions as a lubricant to the metallic gears and rotating components to decrease wear as an effect of mechanical stress during gear shifting and rotation.

Freezing temperature in winter thickens the transmission fluid or oil which may cause difficulty or delay in changing gears. Metal enclosures often contract in low temperatures so the possibility of oil leaks and water infiltration in the transmission system are high. Warming up the vehicle for a few minutes after idle periods helps to keep the effects from cold temperatures at bay. But if irregularities such as clunking and delay in transmission response manifest, it is best to consult the nearest transmission service in Rockhill, SC.

Regular transmission maintenance is vital to car transmission health. During maintenance, automotive specialists will check the oil level and perform fluid replacement when necessary. Other car parts will be examined as well, providing a total car check-up for a safe and enjoyable ride through the entire winter.
