AAMCO Temecula can provide all of your auto, truck and SUV transmission and related service needs as specified in the owner’s manual of your vehicle. Auto manufacturers (the “factory) create detailed maintenance schedules for your car, truck or SUV because they know that a well-maintained vehicle is likely to have greater dependability and to last longer without the need for repair.We can help you with all your maintenance needs for your car, truck or SUV and help you avoid later costly repairs.
Note that many manuals advise that if you drive your car, truck or SUV in “severe” conditions you ought to service your vehicle more frequently. Driving in stop-and-go traffic, frequent short trips, extreme hot or cold conditions / temperatures, towing and hauling, driving at prolonged high speeds, frequent start-ups and shut-downs of the ignition, extensive idling, or driving in mountainous terrain are among the conditions that most manuals will include in the definition of “severe” conditions. It pays you to carefully review your owner’s manual and to follow the detailed service recommendations that you will find there. All of these conditions occur frequently when driving in the Temecula area.
To help avoid transmission problems, various transmission association consumer bulletins advise that customers should be aware that driving their auto, truck or SUV under “severe” conditions as listed in the owner’s manual can cause extra wear and tear on the transmission. For instance, relatively low mileage transmissions that are regularly used in city or stop and go conditions are subject to much higher wear than transmissions of the same mileage that are used under normal or primarily highway conditions. It is important to note that it is not necessarily the mileage on a transmission which determines probable wear and a greater probability of your auto, truck or SUV needing a transmission repair. Rather, it is the number of times the transmission has been run through its start-up and shift cycles that determines probable wear.
Many other seemingly normal driving conditions can affect transmission life and cause a higher incidence of repair. Things like climate conditions (either very cold or hot), mountainous driving, motoring problems which are associated with snow or ice and slippery conditions (and a host of other conditions) can take their toll and cause more frequent need for repair.
The limited examples given above show that the driving conditions you routinely experience with your car, truck or SUV may not fit into the ideal or ‘normal’ driving condition category. If you operate your vehicle under more extreme conditions, servicing your transmission yearly seems to be an industry average. Under the most extreme conditions, it may be advisable to service your transmission even more often and you may also want to install an external transmission cooler for additional protection.
