  • My transmission isn't shifting

    Posted on 04, June, 2019

    When your transmission isn't shifting properly it will need to be seen to diagnose to determine if it is just a fluid issue or if something else has happened. The best way to prevent transmission issues is to have it serviced on a regular basis. That means fluid services every 30,000-50,000 miles. It should be serviced by a reputable shop to make sure it has the correct fluid, the wrong fluid can cause just as much damage as not having it done at all. Transmissions have gotten more complicated as technology has increased, with that the fluids are more specific.

  • Why should I service my transmission?

    Posted on 10, May, 2019

    Changing the fluid in your transmission is just as important as changing the oil in your engine. It does not have to be done as frequently as it takes a specialized fluids. Your transmission should be serviced every 30,000 to 50,000 miles. Servicing your transmission extends the life of your transmission and the life of your vehicle.

  • Why isn't my car shifting?

    Posted on 29, April, 2019

    A shifting issue with your transmission can be from low fluid, if your transmission is leaking fluid then the fluid would be low causing the transmission to not function properly due to low oil. The other reason could be an internal failure. There are also sensors that can fail or in some vehicles cables that break that could also contribute to the issue. The best way to know why it's doing what it's doing is to have it examined.

  • My transmission is leaking

    Posted on 19, April, 2019

    The bottom of your transmission has a pan on it with a gasket, over a period of time that gasket can wear out and it will need to be replaced. It's another item that we suggest doing with maintenance. Your transmission fluid should be serviced every 30,000 to 50,000 miles. Yes I realize that there are plenty of places out there and manufactures that say you only need to change your fluid every 100,000 or it's "lifetime" fluid. To have your transmission repaired or replaced it can be expensive, and fluid services can extend the life of your transmission by 100,000+ miles if serviced on a regular schedule.
