Transmission Repair in Okotoks
A heavy-duty diesel truck’s transmission is a component that is most often overlooked. The reason for this is simple. While any Okotoks resident could tell you the primary function of your tryuck’s tires, steering wheel, or engine, the role of the transmission is slightly less well-known. However, that is not to suggest that it is in any way less important.
In essence your transmission is what allows your heavy-duty diesel truck to move. The transmission is responsible for connecting the power generated by the engine into the specific gear that you wish to drive in and making the wheels move. A good transmission will do this seamlessly while one that is in need of repair could cause you a world of problems!

Why is Transmission Fluid so Important?
The function of the transmission is relatively straightforward but the process behind it is anything but. A fully operational transmission system contains hundreds of different but interlinked components working in unison to produce a harmonious and effective heavy-duty diesel truck component. Transmission fluid is the proverbial glue that ties all these different parts together and is an essential component of any effective transmission system.
The fluid located inside your truck’s transmission enables it to remain cool and lubricated at all times. This allows to transmission to exert force and pressure while also preventing any blockages or build-up. Changing the transmission fluid in your heavy-duty diesel truck regularly will ensure that the fluid will remain clean and will allow it to run smoothly for longer. Old or dirty fluid can reduce the effectiveness of your transmission resulting in a loss of acceleration, difficulties shifting gears and in a worst-case scenario complete transmission failure. This is obviously something that no Okotoks driver wants to happen and realistically it will not, provided that the necessary steps are taken to maintain your truck regularly.
How will I know if the transmission in my truck has failed?
The answer to this question is very simple. If your heavy-duty diesel truck’s transmission fails then the truck is practically useless as the transmission is responsible for changing the gears which provides the power that the truck needs to move power to the wheels. Without this you are going nowhere fast.
