Quite often, in the work of mechanical and automatic gearboxes, problems are observed, the cause of which is an insufficient amount of oil. Therefore, it is necessary to check if there is oil leakage in the automatic transmission. Check the presence of oil leaks after warming up the engine and automatic transmission. Before starting such a trip, you need to carefully clean the gearbox crankcase by contacting . It is worth remembering that the oil should be at the right level, otherwise it must be added. Chalk or talc allow more accurately identifying oil leaks. After that, you need to drive about twenty to thirty kilometers in order for the oil to warm up, and then inspect the automatic transmission. Most often, oil leaks occur in the area: sealing of the crankcase, the flange of the cardan shaft in automatic transmission, drain and flood traffic jam, as well as the joint of the automatic transmission. Thus, the main actions of the car owner to maintain automatic transmission are to control the oil level, in the timely detection of leaks, as well as compliance with the terms for its replacement. Nowadays, most cars do not require oil replacement in automatic transmission until there are no problems. In the event that leaks do not appear, it is enough just once a year to believe the oil level and add it if necessary. At a time when the oil level is checked, the engine works, and the RVD lever is in position “P”, although there are other options that depend on the model of the machine. To measure the level of oil, a control probe or hole closed by a traffic jam is used. In the case of using the control probe, the machine is installed on a lift or pit in order to avoid oil transfusion. In order for the gearbox engine to not knock when starting, you need to ensure that the flooded oil is not too cold. You can pour only special oil for automatic transmission recommended by the car manufacturer.
