Winterize my car for winter driving

How can cold weather affect your transmission?

Colorado is well known for its picturesque winters. Unfortunately, with that beauty comes brutal cold that can cause slipping gears in your transmission. In sub-zero temperatures, your vehicle’s temperature can freeze and contract, causing fluids to leak from the seals. This results in low line pressure.

Slipping occurs when the low line pressure or low supply of system fuel throws the gears out of sync and causes them to malfunction.

Preventative care can help your vehicle stay in prime condition for the winter. If you live in the Centennial, Colorado area, contact our transmission shop to see if your car is ready for a transmission flush before the cold weather sets in.
