Transco Transmissions and Auto Repair - Frequently Asked Questions

Answers To Common Questions Involving Maintenance & Repair of Most Transmissions.

Do I check transmission fluid when it is hot? When the engine is on?

The best time to check automatic transmissions fluid is when the engine is warm after 10 minutes of driving, on level ground and with the engine running.


How much does it cost to fix transmissions leaks? How long does it take?

Transmission leaks can come from anywhere from 5 to 12 separate locations and these areas can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 7 hours to repair. That's why Transco offers their "No Charge Trans-Check"!


How often should I get my transmission fluid changed?

Most automobile manufacturers recommend that you change your transmission fluid every 3years/36,000 miles (consult your owner’s manual). Transco recommends an annual fluid change. If your vehicle is older, or is used for towing, it may be required more frequently.
