Where Can I Find A Buick GMC Tranmission Repair Center Near Me?
At McKinney Buick GMC we are ready to help you with your transmission needs. Transmissions are one of the most important yet overlooked auto components. Keeping your Buick or GMC vehicle’s transmission in top working order is among the most important factors in keeping your vehicle on the road for years and even decades to come.
How Frequently Should I Have My Buick GMC Serviced?
There are, however, a number of factors that influence transmission maintenance in generally predictable ways. One of the key factors in how frequently a vehicle’s transmission should be serviced is the average ambient temperature where the vehicle is primarily driven. Cars and trucks that are driven in hotter climates often need to have their transmissions serviced more frequently than those that are driven in colder climates. This is because added heat puts additional stress on the components themselves as well as causing a quicker breakdown in the fluid. All of this can accelerate wear and tear on the transmission components.
Another important factor in determining transmission servicing schedules is the type of driving being performed. Work trucks that are almost always used to tow trailers may need to have their transmissions serviced much more frequently than smaller cars that are usually only used to transport a single occupant.

Lastly, the most important consideration in determining transmission maintenance frequency is the type of transmission itself. As a rule, manual gearboxes require far less-intensive maintenance than automatics. This is simply because they have fewer moving parts and less friction occurring from clutch plates, pulleys and other mechanisms that allow automatic transmissions to function. Conversely, sophisticated, modern automatic transmissions like CVTs may require much more frequent servicing and observation. This is simply due to the large number of moving parts and the overall complexity level of the system.
