If you are experiencing hard shifting problems during cold weather, you might change the fluid. Most older rear-wheel drive transmissions use a heavy gear oil like 75W, 80W or 90W, which can get pretty stiff at subzero temperatures. Changing to a lighter oil may improve shifting.
According to the Automatic Transmission Rebuilders Association, 90% of ALL transmission failures are caused by overheating. Most of these can be blamed on worn out fluid that should have been replaced. For optimum protection, change the fluid and filter every 30,000 miles. What kind of automatic transmission fluid should you use in your transmission? The type specified in your owner's manual or printed on the transmission dipstick. For older Ford automatics and certain imports, Type "F" is usually required. Most Fords since the 1980s require "Mercon" fluid, which is Ford's equivalent of Dexron II. For General Motors, Chrysler and other imports, Dexron II is usually specified.
We service, replace and repair emergency and other vehicle transmissions and drive trains such as: Fire Engines, Ambulances, School Buses, & Tow trucks.
