How Does a Transmission Work and Why is Maintenance Important?

Aside from the engine, your vehicle’s transmission keeps your vehicle moving. Without it, you’re at a standstill. It is important for you to understand how it works so you can do the best job in maintaining it.

Transmissions contain gears that allow a vehicle’s drive wheels to properly speed up and down without over-revving the engine. Every transmission contains a set amount of fluid that lubricates its internal parts and maintains proper temperature among the constant friction that occurs. However, this fluid eventually breaks down and becomes contaminated with particles, causing it to have more difficulty in controlling temperature. This causes parts to wear down faster and even fail in some situations.

Don’t wait for your transmission to break down. We at Faulkner BMW in Lancaster are transmission maintenance experts who regularly care for a variety of systems. We use the best replacement parts and proper fluid for your make and model. Call us for an appointment today!
