Transmission Service: Smooth Shifting In OcklawahaOct 1st, 2013
Let's suppose you're going to take some friends out on the boat for some water skiing on a beautiful Ocklawaha area lake. Of course, you get the boat ready, but what about your tow vehicle?
Think about it - heavy Ocklawaha traffic, hilly FL terrain. Maybe some dirt roads – and it's going to be pretty hot. And all the time you'll be towing a lot of weight around Ocklawaha roads. That all adds up a lot of severe strain on your transmission. It's going to be working overtime, spending more time in lower gears. The internal transmission temperature is going to be much higher than normal.
Ocklawaha drivers need to make sure they have enough transmission fluid. If it runs low, the transmission will run hotter and won't have the protection it needs to cope with the added stress of towing. Transmission fluid breaks down and gets dirty over time. Whether your vehicle has an automatic or manual transmission, you need to have it serviced on schedule at Gregg Smith Automotive to make sure it runs efficiently.
Neglect your vehicle transmission for too long, and it can fail. You really don't want to pay for a major transmission repair even with the reasonable rates at Gregg Smith Automotive.
Before you leave your Ocklawaha home and head to the lake, take your vehicle in to Gregg Smith Automotive for a trip inspection. Your Gregg Smith Automotive service technician will check your fluids, belts and hoses and let you know if your brakes are in good shape. Now, don't forget the sunscreen.
