Transmission Care- West Springfield


Let’s talk about transmission care.  Transmissions are heavy duty pieces of equipment that are designed to last a long time.

But like any other machine, they’ll eventually wear out and need repair.

So let’s focus on what you can do to push that day off as far as possible.


Preventing transmission repairs are the easiest and most cost effective way to avoiding the larger repairs that seem to happen at the worst time.

If you are planning on going on a trip, it is recommended that you check your fluids or call Kuhnel Auto Repair West Springfield, and we will be happy to assist you.

Refer to your vehicles service manual for when your manufacturer recommends transmission service.


  • If your transmission is making unusual noises, it is best not to ignore that, and hope that it goes away.
  • If you see that there is a leak in your driveway, be sure to let your service technician know.

Check your Transmission Fluid

The first thing you can do is to make sure your transmission always has enough fluid.

Transmission fluid cools and lubricates the transmission.

When there’s not enough fluid, the transmission will run hotter and wear out sooner.

The transmission fluid also provides the pressure needed to transfer power from the engine to the transmission.

Not enough fluid, and your transmission won’t shift properly.
