How a Tune-up Can Improve Performance

Smooth Movement

When your transmission system gets dirty, it starts losing hydraulic power and the gears tend to become slippery. You need enough pressure in your transmission to stay in the right gear, and a dirty transmission has contaminants that interfere with the transmission fluid’s flow.

If there are no other problems in your transmission and the fluid levels are full, then the issue might be a restricted flow of fluids due to dirt or contaminant build-up.

Responsive Gear Shifting

If your transmission has too much sludge or dirt in the transmission fluid, it will lead to a sluggish response while changing gears. This can create problems and make it hard to change gears while driving.

This type of problem is even more prominent in manual transmission vehicles. So, regular transmission tune-ups are recommended for the safe operation of your vehicle.

Quiet Operation

If you notice strange sounds from your transmission while you drive your vehicle, you should stop and check the level of your transmission fluid while the engine is off.

Make sure that the color of the fluid is red, not black or brown. If the fluid level is good, but it looks dirty, it’s probably overdue for a tune-up.

Steady Vehicle Operation

You might notice that your vehicle starts surging while driving. This could be a sign of transmission fluid contamination, which causes the system to operate in an inconsistent manner. A dirty or clogged up system can't pump out enough quality fluids, and as a result the vehicle surges forward when it shouldn't, falls back for some unknown reason - even just jumps into gear all by itself at times. This can lead to more serious consequences down the line if not addressed promptly with professional help.
