Your transmission system needs clean fluid to operate correctly. That’s why it’s important to ensure that the fluid is clean and free of leaks. When you bring your vehicle in, we will perform a full fluid exchange using the specifications that are recommended by your vehicle’s manufacturer. We can also include a transmission filter change. This filter helps to keep out excess debris, allowing the fluid to run cleanly and smoothly through the system.

Parts of a Transmission
Your transmission is a gearbox that transfers power from the engine to the axles. This then transfers as the gears rotate until the power finally transfers to the axle, allowing your tires to rotate. There are several elements of transmission, and each one plays an important role. The clutch is what allows the engine to disengage from the wheels without coming to a full stop. If it’s engaged, the engine and transmission gears rotate and connect to the flywheel, which is connected to the engine. When the clutch and flywheel connect, your gears start turning.
Another part of your transmission is the gearshift, which tells your transmission how much power should be transferred to the axle. This causes the axles to rotate the wheels, and you can change it from first to second or third gear. It also tells the transmission if you need to drive in reverse. This element of your transmission is connected to the driveshaft. A part called the drivetrain consists of several components that tell the wheels which direction to go and how fast they should turn. It also gives your wheels added power when you drive uphill or need to accelerate.
With proper maintenance and necessary repairs, your transmission will run smoothly, allowing for a pleasant, powerful ride no matter where you go.
