Tires – Rims – Automatic Transmissions
To get the direction of movement that You want to go, Tires, Rims, and the Automatic Transmission are required components. Okay, your thinking that I did not mention the engine – the major component (the Lion King) that which makes all the other functions work together as one moving mass. Picture by Pixabay.
You have chosen your New Tires and your New Rims, You made the deal – a marriage of new Tires to steel Rims. Which have been balanced and installed on your ride.
Step back and take a look at your ( Car – Suv – Truck ) whichever vehicle that You drive. Not the same ride with the new add-ons applied.
Probably a “WOW” factor, okay time to bring your lower jaw back up closer to your upper jaw and then go for a cruise.
What! No Movement – Forward or Reverse. What just happened?
Okay! compose yourself and think back over the last couple of days or even a week ago. Have You noticed anything around or under your vehicle when it was moved or parked in a different location?
Maybe a Faint Path of Fluid that You thought may have belonged to someone else’s vehicle that was parked where You are parked now.
Maybe thinking back now that, the last couple of mornings was slow and lazy going into the gear that You selected. Yes now that You think of it, that makes sense to You.
Well, guess what, your vehicle has an Automatic Transmission Leak and You are now to low on Automatic Transmission fluid (ATF) to make forward or reverse movement to happen.
And the last stop at the Tire and Rim shop was where the fluid level got low enough in the Transmission pan, that the filter could not pick up the fluid to make movement happen
DO NOT PANIC !
It will be a leak that needs to be inspected and repaired. This can be as simple as a Cooler Line Leak or an Automatic Transmission pan Gasket leaking. My advice to You would buy a couple of liters or quarts of fluid (ATF) that applies to your to Vehicles Automatic Transmission.
This is important to put the Proper Qualified Fluid into your Transmission. Talk to parts supplier that You know of or have been in the business for many years, they will guide You for the Correct Fluid Types.
USE THE CORRECT ATF:
Okay, Tires – Rims and Automatic transmission all ready to go out on the open road for a good enjoyable drive – Enjoy, You made the right decisions. Picture by Pixabay
To have the Culprit Leak Area Inspected and Repaired, the Automatic Transmission will be working fine but don’t lose focus on the “fix”.
Maybe even the shop You had your Tires a Rims installed may do the repair for You, or You may have a shop that You already trust and have a good relationship with to do the repair for You. Either way.
