Protect Your Transmission

Posted by Katie Roell

Transmission damage is 1 of the most common problems that occur while plowing. The following
steps can help prevent transmission damage.

Ways to Protect Your Truck Transmission

• Do not plow in overdrive unless your vehicle’s Owner’s Manual recommends it.
• Plan your plow pattern so that you drive forward as much as possible.
• Come to a complete stop before shifting from forward to reverse.
• Wait until the transmission engages before accelerating.
• Accelerate slowly, allowing the tires to grip the road surface for better traction. Avoid spinning the
tires.
• Start driving forward before lowering the plow for a pass.
• Whenever possible, back into a cleared area.
• If you have a manual transmission, avoid riding the clutch while plowing.
• Change the transmission fluid before and during the plowing season. If the fluid has a burnt smell, change the fluid as soon as possible.
• You can install an inline transmission heat gauge to monitor the temperature in your transmission. If it reaches 121°C (250°F), let the vehicle idle until the fluid cools.
