Transmission Problems Are A
But Can Be Prevented With The Proper Service.
"they saved me thousands on
transmission replacement that was recommended by the dealer and was not needed ... he knows his staff
and I mean really knows Mercedes Benz from top to bottom" -Jessica, Google Reviews
Keeping your transmission serviced properly can save you from expensive repairs.
A transmission is the component that allows the power of the
engineto drive the wheels of a car. An operating transmission is a
finely tuned dance between the mechanical, hydraulic, and electrical systems controlled by a computer. There
are gears, pumps, valves, seals, gaskets, cables and other parts that all must work in concert. In other
words, this is a complex mega-system that quite simply makes the car move. Without a transmission, the car goes nowhere under its own power.
|| In most cases it is advisable to have an automatic transmission’s fluid
and filter changed every two years or 24,000 miles, to keep it in good working order. This is
especially important if the vehicle is more than five years old. Many vehicles
newer than five years old may
less often and some new vehicles have transmissions that need no scheduled service for the life of the car.
There are exceptions, if your Mercedes-Benz is driven hard, tows a trailer, goes off-road or carries a
camper. Under these conditions, the fluid and filter may need to be changed more often -- every 12 months or
12,000 miles --because dirt and moisture buildup in the fluid can cause internal damage. Heat buildup can also
be a problem.
The harder the
transmission works, the hotter the fluid gets and the quicker the fluid breaks down. To find out the
recommended service schedule for your vehicle’s transmission, check the owner’s manual or give us a call.
Manual transmissions generally need no regularly scheduled service, but may need service due to worn clutch and
throw-out bearings and broken synchromesh gears. If you have any questions at all, just give us a call and we
will be happy to answer them for you.
