Auto transmission service and repair
Regardless of the type of car you drive, whether it’s a manual or automatic, you need to make sure you keep your car’s transmission functioning correctly. Automatic cars require regular transmission servicing to guarantee the best possible performance from your vehicle. There are also added benefits of efficiency and longevity.
An automatic car’s transmission system is one of the most complicated parts of a car. Luckily, our technicians are highly skilled and can easily diagnose and fix any issues you may be having. Our transmission services include; transmission fluid draining, transmission removal, oil pan cleaning, fluid condition inspections, full transmission flushing and leak testing.
If you drive a manual car, you will also need to get your transmission system serviced regularly. This process is less complicated than with automatic vehicles and usually requires steps such as fluid replacement and other smaller tasks. Transmission services need to be completed by an experienced professional to ensure a safe driving experience.
Here at Tony Allen Auto Service, we have highly-capable experts on hand to solve your transmission needs.
How to tell if your car needs a transmission service:
There are some common warning signs that your car is in need of a transmission service, often these come in the form of clutch problems. Here are some ways to tell if you have a transmission issue:
- You’ve noticed that your clutch slips often and isn’t able to transfer acceleration to your car wheels.
- Your clutch is sticky and does not release easily
- Leaky fluid, jarring gear transitions and a humming sound can all be tell-tale signs of automatic transmission problems
- If your ‘Check Engine’ light is on, it may signify a transmission issue
Manual transmission and automatic transmission systems
There are a few key differences between an automatic and manual car transmission system. This is because clutch pedals are only present in manual cars and automatic cars have a gear selector built in.
Automatic cars have automatic transmission systems. In these systems, once a car is in drive all other functions are automatic. In a manual car, manual transmission locks and unlocks depending on the chosen gear.
