I’m getting ready to change my transmission fluid. What should I look for?
The basic inspection should include the following:
- Ensure transmission mounting bolts are tight and the mounts aren’t worn or damaged
- Check the fluid level and make sure the fluid isn’t burnt
- Wires and electrical connections should not be dirty, loose or frayed
- Make sure the drive shaft is in phase and there is no damage
- Check U-Joints for wear
- All fittings should be greased
