The Manual Transmission and Fluid Exchange 

There are two basic transmission types, the automatic and manual transmission systems. The manual transmission requires the driver to select the desired gear given the terrain and desired travel speed. At Awesome Ford, we are very well aware of our heavy duty die-hard truck enthusiasts that will always love their stick shifts because they are just fun to drive. Like all transmission systems, the manual transmission relies on transmission fluid to keep the internal parts lubricated and cool. The internal conditions inside a transmission vary according to the work being done, but all transmission fluid will lose integrity over time due to the intense heat, pressure, and friction inside the transmission system. It is also a closed system, if compromised, will further erode the transmission fluid's integrity and performance. At Awesome Ford, we encourage everyone with a manual transmission system to follow the recommended maintenance schedule for Fluid Exchange Service; however, if you are experiencing any symptoms of a transmission problem, then scheduling service ASAP is the best bet.
