Re: Does Transmission Fluid Crap Out Fast?
The wheel spin will not hurt the transmission. What a lot of people do when the get stuck in the snow is "Rock the Car". That is, shifting from Drive to Reverse and back to Drive repeatedly until they Rock the car out of snow patch they dug themselves into. THAT will put a strain on the transmission. But the transmission oil will not "go bad" during the winter. But it wouldn't hurt to check the condition of the oil by getting the engine up to operating temperature and checking the level and color of the oil. Bright Red is good. Dark Red it'* time to change the xmission oil. Black? Well it might be time to save for a rebuilt xmission.
