Transmission Maintenance

Transmission Maintenance:

In order to extend the life of your car and keep it road ready, it’s important to stay on top of regular transmission maintenance. As your vehicle ages, your transmission will go through normal wear-and-tear, which can be exacerbated by stop-and-go traffic. Transmission fluid becoming thin and contaminated may also cause premature wear. Milex Complete Auto Care - Mr. Transmission Cary offers a wide range of services– from fluid and filter exchange to fluid and filter flush – to keep your transmission in great shape. We’re proud to keep vehicles in Cary, Raleigh, Apex, Millbrook, Garner, and other communities in the Triangle running at peak condition. Choosing our services will provide smoother shifting, improved performance, component failure reduction and increased vehicle longevity. 

Common signs of transmission wear include:

  • Loss of power upon acceleration
  • Transmission is unable to go into gear
  • Hard or late shifting of gears
  • Transmission slipping
  • Chatter or grinding noise in the transmission
  • Transmission leaking
  • Car is unable to move
