Tips

The mechanics at Hillsdale Transmission have years of experience repairing vehicles and have some tips to offer you to keep your vehicle and your transmission in working condition.

  • During an oil change, also check the level and condition of your transmission fluid.

  • Has your transmission fluid changed according to the manufacturer's specifications? We recommend every 15,000 to 20,000 miles.

  • Vehicles that are heavily used should have the fluid and filters changed more frequently and could possibly benefit from the installation of an auxiliary cooler.

  • Leaks under the vehicle could be a potential problem and should be addressed as soon as possible.

  • Check around the radiator and air ducts for obstructions and debris.

  • Check the condition of your vehicle's hoses and belts, and replace any that appear cracked or leaking.

  • Don't use overdrive on mountainous terrain or while towing.
