As a large portion of the country is buried in snow, a countless number of emergency vehicles worked long, tireless hours to get the roads clear for everyone’s daily commute. Plowing thousands of tons of snow over a long period of time can take a toll on your 4×4 vehicle, especially the transmission. It is extremely important to be aware of your vehicle’s normal transmission fluid temperature levels so you can know when your vehicle hits the danger zone of the mid to high 200° Fahrenheit. If you reach and/or exceed these levels, it is imperative that you let your vehicle idle to allow time for the transmission cooler to cool the transmission fluid so you can resume your work. Ignoring these rising temperature levels and continuing to put stress on your vehicle could lead to catastrophic damage.
