Benefits of Transmission Repair
A faulty transmission can negatively affect your vehicles performance. Symptoms of an impending transmission service include grinding gears, difficulty shifting, slipping out of gear, bucking, and hesitation. Even if your transmission is in neutral, excessive noise is a sign of transmission problems.
In a manual transmission, a dragging clutch, or a clutch failing to disengage from the flywheel, is another sign of transmission issues. When this occurs, the clutch continues to spin with your vehicles engine, and a grinding noise will occur. A burning smell sifting through the air vents is a sign of burning transmission fluid and an overheating transmission.
Things that can negatively impact the life of your transmission include extreme driving habits, and excessive loads or heavy towing habits. Because of the necessary pressure and force provided by transmission fluid in automatic transmissions, old, dirty, and unchanged transmission fluid can cause performance issues.
Regular transmission maintenance as indicated by your vehicles manufacturer can help prevent transmission problems, but if you experience any of the above warning signs of transmission trouble, contact us today about transmission repair or replacement.

Transmission Repair and Rebuild
When it comes to automatic transmission repair, there are several options: buying a new one, buying a remanufactured one or having yours rebuilt. Each of the above options has its own share of advantages and disadvantages. Of the three options, rebuilt transmissions are the most economical. A rebuilt transmission involves removing the transmission from the car, disassembling it, replacing worn out parts, reassembling it, and then reinstalling it.
