Always check your owners’ manual to ensure you do not exceed the maximum towing capacity for your vehicle. Exceeding the maximum towing capacity will lead to transmission failure and will also void any warranty.

Towing a trailer, boat or caravan, particularly in hilly country, places extra load on the transmission and will cause the transmission to labour and build up excessive heat. This heat will affect the transmission fluid causing deterioration and eventually a transmission failure.

If towing regularly, it is wise to have an additional transmission oil cooler fitted to prevent this excessive overheating.

The transmission oil cooler is also recommended where the vehicle is used in slow moving stop/start traffic or subjected to prolonged periods of idling.

Ask your nearest Fluidrive® Service Centre about transmission oil coolers to suit your particular requirements.
