How to Maintain Your Subaru Transmission



Transmission is a vital component of the vehicle and responsible for transferring the power produced by the internal combustion engine and changes it into centrifugal force. This energy is further passed to the drive line, which directly connects to the wheels, causing the vehicle to move. The process shows how critical is transmission and needs proper maintenance in order to keep going for the long haul.

Following is a well planned maintenance program that can ensure longer life for your Subaru Transmission and reduce machine downtime. Preventive maintenance also prevents major failures, maximizes parts reusability and saves your wallet on repairs.

Use Oil Properly

Oil performs three main functions i.e. cleaning, cooling and lubricating the transmission. Nowadays, transmission feature new metals and paper disc that require advanced lubrication. So use the apt oil and change it regularly to achieve top performance. Also use the right drive oil that reduces transmission slippage, controls brake chatter, provides greater rim pull and increases friction material life up to 45 percent. Along with usage, you should also change the oil properly at correct intervals.

Change Filters Frequently

Filters are designed around key factors such as sediment capacity, burst strength and pressure fatigue. By properly and regularly changing filters, you can reduce component wear and lower costs. While replacing your old transmission filters it’s important to open the filter and inspect for signs of component wear or clogging. Sometimes pieces of metal may be found in or around the magnetic screen and can indicate a certain component is losing its life. The sources of metal pieces may be torque converter, transmission clutches, pistons, gear teeth or bearings.

Check Breathers

Inspecting breathers is an important step in preventive maintenance. If breathers become plugged and temperature dips down, your car becomes a vacuum as the cool air inside the car shrink. As air shrinks, it draws dirt and other contaminants through the gaskets and seals. These contaminants can affect your solenoids and become sluggish. Thus clutches engage too quickly or may slide. To avoid this, cover the breather before washing your equipment and check your breather for clogging.

Control Contamination

Controlling contamination is more vital because Subaru require tighter clearances and fluid systems that are more sensitive to contamination. Contamination can reduce efficiency, increase cyclic times, shorten component and fluid life, and causes repairs. To prevent contamination take meticulous care while oil storage and transfer methods, keep parts packed during handling, clean components thoroughly during repair and assembly.

After assembly, don’t open your transmission in a dirty environment, follow proper contamination control and service hour guidelines. If you feel the above methods can give you lot of stress, then contact the well experienced Subaru specialists for routine maintenance and repair. For more details, log on to subarugearbox
