Regular service keeps your transmission on the road

Servicing your car's automatic transmission regularly can dramatically extend its life.

That's because the oil or ATF does more than just lubricate: It also helps drive the transmission. Damage to the fluid, such as oxidation and shear, will reduce its holding power. This allows the transmission to slip and overheat, and quickly cause it to fail.

A complete fluid exchange service, performed annually, can add years to your transmission's life. Most ATRA member transmission repair centers offer this service, and will be happy to explain the details to you.
