Regular service and maintenance can be vital to the longevity of any automatic transmission. Many mechanics will tell you that an automatic transmission, while more convenient for the operator of the vehicle, wont last as long as a traditional manual transmission. Rather than getting too deep into the reason behind that, we would like to emphasize the important for periodic maintenance and transmission servicing every few years or so. This is especially true if your vehicle is getting up there in age. If you think you might be behind on your transmission maintenance, give us a call or bring your vehicle down to our Portland automatic transmission service center at 1809 SE 122nd Ave, Portland, OR 97206 (Click the link for map & directions).
Check with your vehicles manufacturer to find out about the tune-up schedule for the vehicle as some require transmission checks throughout a vehicles lifetime.

Transmission performance can often be improved with a simple maintenance service. We often see poor running engines that receive a minor tune-up cause the transmission to perform like new. Many newer vehicles are equipped with electronic controls which are highly sensitive to the proper running condition of the engine, proper voltage from the battery and good ground. Sometimes a simple fix is all it takes to repair a limping transmission. But keep in mind, transmissions can also be very costly to repair. It’s typically far more cost effective to properly maintain your automatic transmission that it is to repair or rebuild it once it fails.
