Welcome to Denver Transmission! I created this site to provide information about prolonging the life of your transmission in Colorado's extreme weather. I hope you find it useful!
The transmission is the second most neglected part of your vehicle (battery is the first). Nobody thinks about it until it doesn't work, but by following a more intense maintenance program than the manufacturer's recommendation, you can save yourself a lot of money by preventing problems before they occur.
When it comes to the maintenance of your vehicle in Colorado, I strongly recommend you adhere to the extreme service procedures outlined in your owner's manual. In many cases, the regular recommended services are not sufficient in our climate.
Problems often occur outside the manufacturer's warranty (3 years/36,000 miles), but if you service your transmission regularly (once a year or at least every 20,000 miles) you will catch things before they develop, and dramatically prolong the life of your transmission. If however, you engage in extreme driving, towing or plowing you're going to want to tend to your transmission more frequently.
Conventional transmission service includes dropping the transmission pan, chancing the filters and making any necessary adjustments. This regular service will maximize the longevity of your vehicle's transmission.
All this should stand you in good stead, unless there is a problem (i.e., your car over heats, the engine light comes on, etc.). If this is the case, please contact us.
