Suppose you’re going to take some friends out on the boat for water skiing at your favourite Calgary area lake. Of course, you get the boat ready, but what about your tow vehicle?

Think about it – heavy Calgary traffic and hilly terrain. Maybe some dirt roads, and it’s going to be pretty hot. And you’ll be towing around a lot of extra kilograms all the time. That all adds up to a severe strain on your transmission. It will be working overtime, spending more time in lower gear. The internal transmission temperature is going to be much higher than usual.

Calgary drivers need to make sure to have enough transmission fluid in their vehicles. 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 ensure it runs efficiently.

Neglect your transmission for too long, and it can fail. You want to avoid paying for a major transmission repair.

Before you leave, bring your vehicle into Heritage Autopro for a trip inspection. Our technicians will inspect your fluids, belts and hoses and let you know if your brakes are in good shape.
