Transmission Inspection – If your vehicle’s transmission is showing signs of trouble, from difficulty shifting to odd noises to a slipping transmission, our certified technicians can inspect the transmission to find the root of the problem.
Transmission Fluid Exchange – When it comes to transmission maintenance, our customers will need to know about transmission fluid and its exchange needs. Transmission fluid is a special hydraulic oil that serves the transmission as a hydraulic fluid as well as a lubricant. This means if the transmission fluid contaminates or leaks, the transmission’s performance will decline in terms of transferring force and the internal components will not be lubricated properly. The consequences of poor transmission fluid maintenance include overheating, poor performance, and damages leading to an immobilized vehicle. Because of this, we recommend following the recommended maintenance interval for transmission fluid inspections and exchange to ensure the fluid is working in your favor and not toward a performance deficit.
