THE TRANSMISSION: AN OWNER’S GUIDE 
Your vehicle’s transmission is a complex mechanical system that controls the application of power from the engine to the driveshaft. The transmission undergoes more wear and tear over time than most other parts of your vehicle because of the heat and friction produced by its many moving and interacting components. If your transmission is not well maintained, major issues are bound to happen. If you have symptoms of a problem that are not checked by a professional soon after they develop, the transmission can pose a serious safety risk to you as a driver.
