Why Do You Need Transmission Service?

The transmission system is the most intricate system in your car, responsible for transferring power from the engine to all four wheels. It uses transmission oil to cool, lubricate, and clean all internal components, ensuring they run optimally for longer. However, over time, the transmission oil gets contaminated, leading to compromised engine performance and fuel efficiency. This is where a transmission system service becomes crucial, as it replaces the transmission oil, restoring your vehicle’s proper functioning and ensuring its longevity.
