Servicing Your Transmission is Important to Extend the Life of Your Vehicle
Every day you drive your car or truck without any thought of a breakdown. As your vehicle ages, the chances of a breakdown or malfunction become a higher possibility. The possibility of a transmission malfunction is included. One way to extend the life of your transmission is to have a transmission service performed regularly.
Why? Simple, transmission fluid gradually loses effectiveness; thus, replacing transmission fluid regularly is recommended. Hackler Transmission’s transmission service can lengthen the life of the transmission and assist in avoiding some transmission troubles.

What Happens During Transmission Service? – Transmission Service Valley Ranch
When you bring your vehicle into Hackler Transmission, we will visually inspect the transmission for any potential damage and leaks. Other steps in the transmission service process include:
- Clean or replace the transmission filter, which is designed to catch dirt and impurities,
- Clean and reinstallation of the transmission pan, which is responsible for holding excess fluid.
- We inspect the transmission pan for particles
- Flush and refill transmission fluid.
Please consult your owner’s manual for the recommended timeframe between routine transmission maintenance. For most vehicles, with an automatic transmission, manufacturers suggest having the fluid flushed and refilled every 30,000 miles. For manual transmissions, the recommendation is every 30,000 to 60,000 miles.
What is the Purpose of Transmission Fluid?
The designed purpose of transmission fluid is to coat and protect the gears in the transmission of your vehicle. The lubricating power of the fluid helps protect against gear wear and slipping. Over time, transmission fluid becomes thick and contaminated due to the heat emitted from your transmission. For this reason, we cannot stress more the importance of a regular transmission fluid flush every 30,000 miles.
When Should Valley Ranch Car and Truck Owners Have Their Vehicle’s Transmission Inspected?
Your Valley Ranch area vehicle should have its transmission inspected regularly. However, with the extreme temperatures of Texas summers, every 15,000 will give you welcome peace of mind. Other reasons your transmission should be inspected, serviced, or repaired are:
- The automobile will not move

- Transmission seems to be slipping
