Making your transmission last

Transmissions, like engines, are a major component of your vehicle, and very expensive to replace. Transmissions often go out for very preventable reasons, and sometimes replacing one can be troublesome and expensive enough that it’s not even worth doing, depending on the vehicle. With the right maintenance, most transmissions are extremely reliable; it simply boils down to how well a transmission is cared for. Follow these tips to make your transmission last as long as possible, courtesy of Frank May Garage in Akron.

Extending the life of your engine

An engine can last anywhere from 50 to 500,000 miles depending mostly on how well you maintain it. While some engines are certainly more reliable than others, all of them depend on maintenance to fulfill their greatest potential. Frank May Garage in Akron has provided for you some of the determining factors of engine lifespan, to help you make sure your engine lasts as long as it possibly can.

Here are some questions you can ask us next time you come by the shop;

How to get the most out of your tires
