The transmission of your vehicle allows the power from the engine to turn the wheels to get you where you need to go. If that transmission is worn, slipping, or simply not working correctly, transmission repair in Dallas can get your vehicle moving once again.
While there are still many vehicles that depend on a manual transmission, by far the most popular transmission sold in vehicles today is automatic. Automatic transmissions are complex pieces of machinery that include pumps, valves, fluids, and filters to move your car from point A to point B. If your vehicle is not moving or you can feel the transmission slipping, any number of items could be causing the problem. At the first sign of a problem, the best thing to do is take the vehicle to one of The Transmission Shop’s locations. Early service can keep a minor problem from becoming a major one. More importantly, early service can prevent you from being stranded in the middle of traffic on North Central or some other freeway with a vehicle that will not move.
If your vehicle is equipped with a manual transmission, clutches and throw out bearings are some of the more common culprits for problems that may arise. With manual transmissions, the rule of thumb is to replace both the clutch and throw out bearing when one or the other goes out. This can save the expense of pulling the transmission a second time for the second replacement. Signs that your manual transmission may need service include slipping transmission at takeoff or when rapidly accelerating and difficulty in taking the transmission into or out of gear. Other repairs to the manual transmission may include turning the flywheel if it has become excessively worn.
No matter what type of transmission is in your vehicle, one of the best things that you can do to prevent problems is to be sure that the transmission is serviced regularly. The owner’s manual of your vehicle should suggest a service schedule. By ensuring that fluids are at the correct level and a qualified transmission specialist is taking a look at your transmission regularly, you can help keep your transmission alive for much longer. The fluid not only helps to transfer power, but it is also an integral part of keeping the transmission cool. Overheating is one of the biggest enemies of an automatic transmission and operating your vehicle on a hot Texas day when the fluid level is low can cause overheating and damage to the transmission. Follow the directions in your vehicle owner’s manual to check the transmission fluid levels and get your transmission serviced.
