Shift Into Gear With Transmission Maintenance

As your car accelerates or decelerates, the RPMs will go up or down accordingly. Each vehicle has an optimal RPM range depending on your speed, and when it starts to leave that range, your vehicle needs to shift into a different gear. Your transmission is what does this shifting, and it is one of the most important parts of your vehicle.

There are two main types of transmissions: the automatic and the manual. With an automatic transmission, the primary type of transmission in the United States, the vehicle will shift on its own. With a manual, the driver needs to engage the clutch and then shift to the appropriate gear. Both transmissions contain transmission fluid that provides lubrication and needs regular changing based on your vehicle's recommended service schedule.

If it is time to change your transmission fluid, or you notice that it is becoming difficult for your car to enter a new gear, it is time to call our Honda service department here at First Choice Honda in Laramie, WY.
