How to protect your transmission during the winter

During the winter months, it is even more important to ensure your transmission is in working order. The colder temperatures make the fluids in your car thicker, so they don’t lubricate as well. To counteract this, drive at a slow speed for several miles, during cold weather. This will increase the temperature of your transmission. You will also want to get a heater for your engine. All you have to do is plug it into an outlet and it will heat up your transmission for you. You can set a timer so that the heater turns on a few hours before you need to drive.
