Your transmission is like an organ in your car. It’s a particularly vital organ, as well as being difficult and expensive to treat when it develops a problem. Your car can’t run without it. In many ways, it is comparable to a major organ in the human body, such as your liver. Livers are complicated organs, of vital importance to your vital processes (meaning, you can’t live without what it does for you) which are difficult to work on, and extremely difficult to replace. As a result, instead of simply offhandedly suggesting that people do whatever they like to their bodies – then simply get their livers replaced when they turn yellow – your doctor will strongly encourage you to take care of your liver, and will encourage a healthy and active lifestyle which is conducive to promoting and prolonging a healthy liver… including regular exercise, a healthy diet, moderation in alcohol consumption, and the taking of appropriate vitamins to supplement a healthy diet.
The same is true for your car’s transmission. Your car can’t work without a transmission. Without a working transmission, your car is a large piece of metal and plastic which is taking up space in your driveway (and, given time, leaking hazardous substances into your local water table). Repairing a transmission is a difficult, expensive, and time-consuming process which requires the services of a specialist; you don’t want the mechanic at the local neighborhood garage working on your car’s transmission. He is unlikely to have the skills or the expertise that are necessary for such a complicated endeavor. When it comes to transmission repair – or, in a worst-case scenario, replacement – you want to visit the experts at All-Trans.

There are a few tips to follow by default, which every driver ought to adhere to – such as checking your transmission fluid on a regular basis, and having your transmission serviced at every 30,000 miles – but the staff at All-Trans will be capable of providing far more detailed information on how to prolong the lifespan of your car’s transmission.
