Transmissions convert power from the engine so that it can supply high torque at low speeds, in addition to selecting which gears are appropriate based on the driving conditions.

This is especially true with automatic transmissions-by far the most popular transmissions found in the US. Rather than using a clutch to engage the transmission, automatic transmissions use a torque converter (between the engine and transmission) to control the number of gears used when driving.

Transmission Fluid Change

Supplying the power to regulate gear action is a demanding task, which is why it’s important for you to contact us, your transmission service specialists. Here are some of the essential maintenance tasks we complete:

  • Drain transmission and torque converter
  • Refill Automatic Transmission Fluids (ATF) with new fluid

Transmission problems typically arise when regular service is neglected. When fluids aren’t properly changed, heat caused from mileage friction results in rough shifting, accelerated wear, and even complete failure. That’s why it’s essential that you turn to us to make sure that your transmission is lubricated and cooled by the finest quality transmission fluids, installed by our service professionals.

Transmission Maintenance

In order for an automatic transmission to function properly, the transmission fluid must be clean and never get too hot. As the transmission fluid ages it loses the additives needed to keep it clean and cool. The transmission fluid should be replaced at regular intervals to extend the life of your transmission.

Transmissions can fail for a number of reasons, but old, dirty, or low fluid is a large contributing factor to premature transmission failure.

If the transmission fails it will need to be repaired or replaced. On some vehicles the valve body will fail and be replaced individually. There are some transmission repair shops that perform internal automatic transmission repairs. If you have a failed transmission and bring it to us, we’ll recommend replacing the transmission with a re-manufactured or used transmission to help you save time and money.
