The transmission of any vehicle is a vital component of the vehicle. It’s the system that sends power from your engine to the drive system, ultimately getting you from point A to point B. Each part of the transmission system has to work in unison with other parts and systems in order for your vehicle to run efficiently and properly. Keeping the system well lubricated also helps with the entire process, as well as keeping the high-friction areas cool and moving smoothly. Your transmission system makes use of transmission fluid filters to prevent dirt and foreign debris from getting into the moving parts. An improperly installed, aged, or filthy filter can end up slowing the movement of fluid and cause overheating issues over time.These issues will lead to a complete transmission failure.
