Let’s suppose you’re going to take some friends out on the boat for some water skiing at your favorite Kelowna area lake. Of course, you get the boat ready, but what about your tow vehicle?
Think about it – heavy Kelowna traffic, hilly terrain. Maybe some dirt roads and it’s going to be pretty hot. And all the time you’ll be towing around a lot of extra kilograms. That all adds up a lot of severe strain on your transmission. It’s going to be working overtime, spending more time in lower gears. The internal transmission temperature is going to be much higher than normal.
It’s important for Kelowna drivers to have enough transmission fluid. If it runs low, the transmission will run hotter and won’t have the protection it needs to cope with the added stress of towing. Transmission fluid breaks down and gets dirty over time. Whether you have an automatic or manual transmission, you need to have it serviced on schedule to make sure it runs efficiently.
Neglect your transmission for too long, and it can fail. You really don’t want to pay for a major transmission repair.
