Proper care of transmission fluid — Your transmission fluid levels for the coolant, the hydraulic fluid and the lubricant are crucial to the transmission’s life. Proper care eliminates most the reasons why transmissions need repair in the first place. You can always tell if you are doing your best to eliminate costly transmission repair if the transmission fluids are free of particles, clear in color and odorless.
Road test during the transmission repair — We will road test your automobile before we repair your transmission to check for shifting sequences, variations in operating ranges for gear selections, transmission slipping, etc. You may accompany our driver/technician and he will explain what is happening and help you chose the best method possible for your transmission repair.
Engine operation — We’ll check for possible problems that would appear to be transmission repair related. If your engine is not functioning properly, it will have a definite effect on the efficiency of your transmission. We will diagnose the problem regardless of whether it is a transmission repair that is needed or an engine repair.
Axles, CV joints, boots, etc. — A failing transmission sounds bad and shakes the car. It’s usually a minor part when it comes to transmission repair and can be replaced easily. CV joints and boots will do the same, although they’re a little more costly to replace in a transmission.
Transmission and engine mounts — A bad mount will cause the engine and transmission to move under power and change the shifting sequences of your transmission. Many transmission repair shops misdiagnose this issue as something much more costly.
