Transmission Service: Smooth Shifting

Monday, January 7, 2019

Let's suppose you're going to take some friends out on the boat for some water skiing on a beautiful Wausau area lake. Of course, you get the boat ready, but what about your tow vehicle?

Think about it - heavy Brokaw traffic, hilly WI terrain. Maybe some dirt roads – and it's going to be pretty hot. And all the time you'll be towing a lot of weight around Wausau area roads. That all adds up a lot of severe strain on your transmission. It's going to be working overtime, spending more time in lower gears. The internal transmission temperature is going to be much higher than normal.

Brokaw drivers need to make sure they have enough transmission fluid. If it runs low, the transmission will run hotter and won't have the protection it needs to cope with the added stress of towing. Transmission fluid breaks down and gets dirty over time. Whether your vehicle has an automatic or manual transmission, you need to have it serviced on schedule at Griesbach Auto Service Inc. to make sure it runs efficiently.

Neglect your vehicle transmission for too long, and it can fail. You really don't want to pay for a major transmission repair even with the reasonable rates at Griesbach Auto Service Inc..

Before you leave your Brokaw/Wausau home and head to the lake, take your vehicle in to Griesbach Auto Service Inc. for a trip inspection. Your Griesbach Auto Service Inc. service technician will check your fluids, belts and hoses and let you know if your brakes are in good shape. Now, don't forget the sunscreen.
