Your car’s transmission system plays a vital role in a vehicle. It involves gears, shafts, and other metal parts which aid in transmitting power from the engine to the wheels. Any malfunction in this interconnected system may have hazardous effects not just to the vehicle but also to the owner who drives it. That is why it is important that you should be aware about the causes of damage to transmissions and how they can be repaired.

Oftentimes transmission problems in Rock Hill SC start from overheating. This usually occurs when you tow a heavy trailer, rocking your vehicle, racing at high speed, driving in stop-and-go traffic during hot weather, and more.

Oxidation in your transmission happens when you drive your vehicle at higher temperatures. When your transmission oxidizes, it loses its lubricating qualities, leaving deposits in the inside of the transmission. This is why the transmission fluid turns dark and dirty, and smells badly when it is checked by a certified transmission specialist.

Without regular maintenance, the metal parts in your transmission system can become distorted causing the valves to stick. O-rings become hard and brittle, and rubber stops up when exposed to too much heat. Overheating may not be the only reason for transmission problems though. However, heat can still cause transmission failure which is why you should have your car regularly serviced.
