If you have ever wondered how your wheels know exactly how fast to turn in order to maintain a certain speed, it is all regulated by your transmission. Without this vital piece of equipment, you will not be going anywhere. That is why you will want to make sure it is properly maintained at all times.

An automatic transmission will function as your own gear shifter. Depending on how much weight you put on the accelerator, the transmission will change gears. The higher gears will result in your tires turning much faster. As you slow down, the transmission will automatically downshift to keep the tires from spinning too rapidly.

You will want to make sure you keep your transmission fluid topped off. That is how you keep everything in great working order. If you have questions about this or would like to have your transmission serviced, just stop by Volvo Cars Orland Park.
