What Does The Transmission Do

Transmissions work to transfer power from the engine to the vehicle. It allows the car to work at different speeds or gears. The automatic transmission has parts like the clutches, bands, hydraulic systems, and gear pumps. The planetary gear set is the starting point. It creates the different possible gear ratios used by your vehicle.

There are three parts to this system, including the sun gear, two or more planet gears, the planet's gear carrier, and the ring gear. Another part of the transmission is the torque converter. Transmission fluid is converted from the hydraulic system and it helps these parts run correctly. Manual transmissions have a clutch that the driver operates to make it work and change gears. It also has a gear selector, fork, collars, and several shafts and gears. Both systems are complex and require skilled technicians to make sure everything runs smoothly.

Some of the services we offer are:

  • Automatic Transmissions - Automatic transmission service is a routine service like an oil change. Automatic transmissions are complex, and it's best to trust the service to an experienced mechanic. They will check the physical parts as well as the fluid to make sure everything is in good condition and will make any necessary repairs.
  • Manual Transmissions - During manual transmission service, the transmission fluid will be drained and replaced. The system will also be inspected and see if the physical parts are in working order.
  • Transmission Fluid Exchange - The transmission fluid system is a closed system. If there is a leak, then the leak needs to be repaired and the fluid replaced. It's recommended to change the fluid every 2 to 4 years or every 30,000 to 60,000 miles. You can check your owner's manual and see what the recommendations are. Some require the fluid to be changed every 100,000 miles or more.
  • Transmission Replacement - Your transmission replacement should be trusted in the hands of the professionals. If it is making any noises like squealing when the gears are shifting, grinding noises, or a burning odor, you should take it in to be repaired.
