Common Transmission Issues
If you are having trouble shifting gears, chances are you have old transmission fluid that needs to be changed. Over time, transmission fluid becomes less effective at lubricating moving parts, meaning gear changes become more difficult to make. Also, old transmission fluid may have gunk that builds up in certain areas of your transmission, which can lead to overheating issues in certain cases. If you’re having this issue, we here at Chuck’s Truck Service Centrewill flush the old fluid out of your transmission and replace it with new fluid.
If your transmission is overheating, you may need to get your fluid swapped. When transmission fluid breaks down, not only does it lose its ability to lubricate metal, but it loses its ability to absorb radiant heat as well. This means less heat will be dispersed through your transmission cooler. If you’re confident your transmission fluid is in good shape, we highly recommend bringing your heavy-duty truck in and getting your transmission cooler inspected.
