How to destroy your gearbox

How to destroy your gearbox.

Bad habits are the hardest things to break but if you are aware of the ways to avoid destroying your gearbox, it will help a lot down the road.

The automatic gearbox in your vehicle is a highly important module. The gearbox will allow you vehicle to cruise at high speeds without blowing the motor. The gearbox multiplies the torque produced by the engine in order to propel the vehicle forward. It also make driving in traffic a breeze because it eliminates the need for the clutch and constant shifting.

1. Overheat your vehicle as often as possible.

Most of the automatic transmissions of today are designed to run at a temperature of 200 degrees Celsius. For every 20 degrees you go over that 200, the lifespan of your gearbox will decrease by a factor of two. It is also important to note that even if you gearbox operates at 240 degrees, the fluid can burn up quickly which means the moving parts won’t be sufficiently lubricated.

2. Maintain improper fluid levels.

If you want to guarantee a transmission breakdown then you should keep you fluid at a low level or have no fluid at all. The fluid will keep the various parts cool and lubricated. When the fluid runs out, the internal parts of the gearbox will grind against each other and overheat which will lead to a total failure.

3. Never change the fluid.

Another way to severely damage your transmission is to not change the fluid when you are supposed to (consult your owner’s manual for when and how to do this). The fluid not only burns up but it also gets dirty and it needs to be changed. Not changing the fluid can lead to seals and gaskets overheating and breaking, leading to overheating and breaking down of vital components.

4. Use the incorrect fluid type.

Even adding the wrong type of transmission fluid will cause the transmission to die. Manual and automatic gearboxes use different fluids and its very important that you never use the wrong one or mix the two together.

5. Drag race from light to light.

Pulling off at high speed with high revs will produce a lot of heat. You need to give your transmission time to cool down or it will overheat pretty quickly and we know what happens to a transmission when it over heats. If your vehicle was specifically designed to racing, then you shouldn’t have a problem.
