Transmission & Clutch
Smooth is what we want in a car, truck, SUV or hybrid, especially as you go from gear to gear. When it comes to gear-transition, we’re talking about the transmissions! This does include the clutch, whether you’re applying it manually, or your vehicle “does it for you” in an automatic vehicle.
In order to fully understand what’s happening with your vehicle’s transmission, your description is always helpful and we may also need to run a diagnostic test in order to get the full view of what may be happening, or not happening, with your vehicle’s transmission and/or clutch.
These are a few of the main points and parts that come into play when we’re diagnosing, repairing or servicing transmission or clutch issue:
Clutch master cylinders
Clutch slave cylinders
Computer and electronic diagnoses
Differential service & repair
Flywheel resurfacing & replacement
Manual transmission services: diagnoses & repairs
Service clutch hydraulic systems
Transmission cooler lines & hoses
Transmission fluid leak detection & repair
Does your vehicle feel kind of jerky as it’s going from a gear and into a new one?
Does it seem like one gear is particularly “rough” to get in or out of?
Is there a strange leak that you can’t identify?
Those may be indicators that a look at your transmission or clutch may be in order. There are other symptoms, of course, but those are a couple of the main ones.
As always, if your vehicle develops a new or strange behavior, try to have that looked at as soon as possible. We just want you safe.
Give us a call or schedule a service & we’ll take a good look at your transmission & clutch for you.
