Transmission service and transmission replacement are daunting concepts for individuals not familiar with vehicle maintenance. These two items, while similar in nature, are distinctly different. Transmission service is preventative, often times cheaper and routine. Transmission replacement, on the other hand, is a cumbersome and pricey undertaking. In this article, we'll discuss the importance of transmission maintenance and the risk of transmission failure.

A great majority of people don't know much about their transmission. How do you tell if it's healthy? How do you know when it needs service? How long does transmission repair take? The answers to all these questions are quite simple if you know what to look for.

Routine transmission service is vital for your vehicle. Don't neglect it as you will find yourself wondering how long does transmission repair take.

Four-wheel-drive (4wd) systems used to be reserved for trucks and designed mainly for rugged off-road use. Today, there are four basic systems that send engine power to all four wheels of the vehicle--all-wheel drive (AWD), part-time AWD, part-time 4WD, and full-time 4WD.  So drivers can understand the differences, here is a brief explanation of each type of system:

Full-Time 4-Wheel Drive

Full-time 4WD systems date back nearly a century. Today, their use is mostly limited to vehicles that are designed for serious off-road duty. This drive train configuration traditionally sends engine power equally to all four wheels. They come equipped with a special secondary "low" gearing ratio for driving very slowly in rugged terrain. Many also feature locking differentials (these systems prevent one wheel from slipping if another wheel has traction).

Today’s drivers still have the option of full time 4wd systems. Because they are fully engaged at all times, you may be spending more on 4wd repair.
