The transmission may well be one of the most complicated and important
components of your vehicle. All motor vehicles have a transmission, automatic or
manual. The transmission's primary function is to transmit the rotation of the
engine's crankshaft to the wheels. It also controls the levels of power and speed
that are sent to your tires. In other words, without it, you would sit in your car with
the engine running, but going nowhere.
Manual (standard) transmission is also known as a stick-shift. Here, the driver
literally uses a stick to change gears. On average, manuals are more fuel-efficient,
since you're not using as much power as you would with an automatic transmission,
and are usually cheaper than their automatic counterparts. Typically, manual
transmissions require less maintenance, because they are a much simpler design;
however, the clutch may need to be replaced at some point.
Automatic transmission is certainly the most popular option; it is easier to use,
because the transmission does the shifting for you. While driving a vehicle with
automatic transmission, you are able to keep both hands on the wheel, which
makes everyday driving safe, especially for the new driver. However, automatic
vehicles cost more in the long run; furthermore, they cost more upfront and require
more maintenance because of their complex design system.
Today, transmissions work harder than ever and have a big influence on fuel
economy and reliability. Over time, the fluid breaks down, becomes contaminated
and needs to be serviced. Changing the transmission fluid that cools and lubricates
a transmission's moving parts is essential to good car health, keeping both you and
your vehicle safe out on the road.
The worst catastrophe that may occur is a transmission failure. This is more than
serious and incredibly expensive. Most transmission failures are caused by
overheating, a problem that is usually preventable if you regularly monitor the
clarity of your transmission fluid.
Maximizing the life of your vehicle's transmission depends on regular maintenance,
including getting a transmission flush every three years.
A flush completely rids your transmission of old fluid and contaminants that have
built up over time. Our technicians will install high-quality flushing equipment to
ensure that the maximum amount of fluid and contaminants are drained; then they
will add an effective cleaner to remove harmful varnish and sludge deports from
the internal components and replace the old fluid with new clean transmission
Changing your transmission fluid and flushing your transmission fluids are two
highly effective services that ensure your transmission runs smoothly.
Please notice that a transmission fluid change and flush are preventative
maintenance procedures, not a cure-all for larger problems if your transmission or
any of its moving parts are wearing down.
