For those of you who aren’t mechanically-savvy, you probably still understand that transmission problems are among the most expensive repairs required for your vehicle. It’s ok, you don’t need to know much about your transmission, because that’s why you have us! Your local G&G Auto Repair.
As mechanics we know that ignoring the problem or hoping it will go away is the worst thing someone can do to their car or truck. We encourage regular checkups and maintenance to save you money in the long run. 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, your local trustworthy mechanics, to make sure that your transmission is lubricated and cooled by the finest quality transmission fluids.
Your transmission is a complex system of gears that transmit mechanical power to your engine, ultimately determining the rate of speed you travel. The transmission converts this 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 U.S. 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 when driving. 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
