About Your Vehicle’s Transmission
Your car, truck or SUV’s transmission is a major system with many moving parts. These components include gears and sensors that keep your engine and wheels driving in unison. This system also transfers the motor’s energy to the wheels and tires for greater safety and control.
As the engine works and energy transfers as it should, the parts get very hot. To prevent overheating and breakdown, transmission fluid absorbs the excess heat. But over time, the liquid becomes less effective and resulting increased temperatures cause wear and tear on the parts. This makes routine maintenance very important to the health of your motor and in prevention of higher repair costs.
Raleigh Area Vehicle Service and Transmission Auto Repair
One of the most important services your car needs is a transmission flush. This exchange of new fluid for the old includes a system flush and installation of a new filter and pan gasket. Without this key service, you can experience the hassle and expense of complete failure. But when you follow your manufacturer’s recommendations and seek proper care from our ASE-certified technicians, your transmission can last well beyond 100,000 miles. Service keeps your parts and labor costs low, too.
To understand how often you need service, check your vehicle’s user’s guide or other documentation provided by your manufacturer. Or, simply call the friendly technicians of Weatherspoon Auto and ask about your vehicle’s auto repair or service needs. Most manufacturers recommend service every 50,000 miles. But this varies from vehicle to vehicle and according to whether your vehicle is automatic, semi automatic or manual.
Signs of problems with your transmission include:
- Clutch pedal becomes inoperable
- Illuminated check engine light
- Low fluids or leak
- Slipping gears
- Grinding or shaking sensations in the gears
- Gears will not engage
- Parts are whining, humming or clunking
- Burning smell coming from the engine
The best means of preventing problems like those above include driving safely and getting the routine service your vehicle needs. Safe driving includes warming up your engine before driving, especially in cold weather. You should also avoid riding the brakes and never shift while the car is in motion.
Diagnostic Service and Parts Inspection
When your vehicle experiences a problem, the friendly technicians of Weatherspoon Automotive in Cary provide comprehensive diagnostic service to find the precise cause. This diagnostic care includes inspection of key transmission parts, including:
- Electronic parts
- Gasket and seal quality
- Manual linkage
- Neutral switch
- Modulator vacuum
- Throttle linkage
Before performing any work, your mechanic consults with you regarding the results of the diagnostic screening. We also discuss associated costs to ensure the repairs fall within your budget.
