The term transmission repair can strike fear in the hearts of vehicle owners. Whether you have a manual or automatic transmission, this integral part is at the center of your car’s drivetrain and is essential in turning the power from the engine into actual forward movement. When you run into transmission problems, it causes crippling effects. Let the pros at Sansone’s Automotive work on your transmission to get you back up and running again. We have the experience and the know-how to work on any type of transmission.
Prevention is Key
In order to avoid costly repairs, there are some things you can do to maintain your transmission. Flushing and replacing the transmission fluid per your vehicle’s manufacturer guidelines can be crucial. With so many intricate moving parts, the transmission can easily fail if those parts are not properly lubricated. We can take a sample of your fluid and decide how long you have until it’s time for a flush and replacement.
Common Transmission Repairs
If your transmission does need repair, it’s important to know about the various services offered. Here are some of the things we can help you with:
- Clutch replacement: Both automatic and manual transmission cars use clutches. When you shift gears, the clutch should be able to shift those gears smoothly. Over time, wear and tear can wear the clutch out. Let our experts check your clutch to determine if it needs to be replaced.
- Total replacement: For most cars, the gearbox is the main part of the transmission. This integral piece uses gears and gear trains to transmit the speed and torque through your car. If you need a replacement, Sansone’s Automotive can decide whether you’ll need the entire thing rebuilt, remanufactured, or simply repaired or replaced with a used transmission to save you money.
- Diagnostics: Sometimes, it can be difficult to determine exactly what’s causing your transmission problems. Our expert mechanics can make the proper determination as to whether your transmission is slipping, leaking fluid, stalling, or having shifting issues. Once we decide what the exact problem is, we can make a better decision as to the next steps to correct it. This could be anything from draining and replacing fluids to filter replacement.
Whether you have automatic, manual, or four-wheel drive transmission, it’s definitely important that you keep it working at all times. When it comes to transmission problems, our highly skilled professionals know exactly what to look for to pinpoint the issue and make the repairs you need to get back on the road again.
