Every car owner will eventually encounter some unusual sound that strikes fear into their heart. Something that doesn’t quite fit the normal cadence of a day-to-day car routine. Often though it is something minor, maybe even something that goes away on its own.

Get More Out of Your Transmission
If you want anything in life to continue to perform the way it is supposed to, you need to take care of it. General wear and tear on machines will eventually cause problems with the different parts that will eventually lead to them breaking down. The same is true for the transmission of your car.
An average transmission can last between 150,000 to 200,000 miles, if you take proper precautions in the car and maintenance of it. Fortunately, giving your transmission some tender love and care can actually make it last a lot longer and even perform better than before!

But you don't have to make it easy for winter to hurt your ride. Preventive auto maintenance can help keep winter at bay. Here are ten tips for making your vehicle ready for winter.
