Great maintenance is about more than just regular oil changes and tire rotations, it’s also about taking care of your engine’s transmission. At Acura of Limerick, our Acura service team understand the ins and outs of transmission and stresses the importance of good transmission care.

At the heart of every engine is your transmission. This essential component is incredibly intricate and serves as one of the most important pieces of your vehicle’s engine. Your transmission is responsible for directing power to your wheels. While there are a wide variety of transmission types out there, they tend to fall into one of four categories: automatic transmission, manual transmission, automated manual transmissions, and continuously variable transmissions (CVT). Each of these transmission types control differently, require different maintenance, and can dramatically affect your experience behind the wheel.

While your transmission is crucial to the function of your engine, manual transmissions typically require full lubricant servicing every 15,000 miles. On the other hand, automatic-transmissions only require servicing every 60,000 to 100,000 miles. No matter what kind of transmission is fitted to your car, plenty of experts recommend that you have it serviced or at least inspected during your 50,000-mile service check.

Of course, when it comes to transmission maintenance we highly recommend having service experts by your side who can ensure this highly crucial component is running 100% smoothly; luckily, you can find just that at Acura of Limerick. While there may be plenty of Acura dealerships in and around the Philadelphia area that host a fully-equipped service department, few go the extra mile quite like we do.
