Checking the fluid level on your transmission is fairly easy, but a bit more complicated than checking your oil.

The transmission in your truck works harder than any other on the road. A fully loaded semi weighs about 40 times as much as a normal passenger vehicle, and racks up twice the mileage. As such, it’s essential to keep your transmission in good shape and regularly maintenanced. Fortunately, Professional Fleet Maintenance in Ft. Lauderdale has you covered.

Transmissions, while generally durable, can be highly complicated devices. For this reason, they are also expensive to replace, and maintaining one will save you a lot of headache and money in the future. This article from Professional Fleet Maintenance in Ft.
