TRANSMISSION SERVICE

 

When looking for transmission repair near me, remember Honest1 ASE certified mechanics and technicians will be happy to answer any questions and fully explain the details of transmission services to you during your visit.

TRANSMISSION

A transmission service is an important part of your routine maintenance, just like replacing your engine oil, coolants, and cleaning your fuel system. Poor transmission performance may come from actual component failure or a simple disconnected hose or plugged filter. Some of the most common symptoms of transmission problems are:

  • Abrupt or hard shifts between gears.

  • Delayed or no response when shifting from neutral to drive or reverse.

  • Failure to shift during normal acceleration.

  • Slippage during acceleration. The engine speeds up, but the vehicle does not respond.

 

Here we list out the different types of transmission services we offer, including why they are important and what to expect from each service. 

 

AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION FLUID EXCHANGE

 

Transmission gears deliver power from the engine to the drive wheels, shifting automatically to provide the best power and efficiency for your driving speed. A special transmission fluid cools and lubricates the gears. Over time, this fluid degrades, and its lubricant qualities diminish. Changing the fluid at the correct intervals can help prevent premature wear and damage to the transmission.

 

SERVICE INCLUDES:

  • Removal of the old transmission fluid and replacing it with new, clean fluid of the grade recommended by your vehicle manufacturer.

 

AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION DRAIN & FILL

 

Automatic transmission fluid lubricates, cools and cleans internal components of the transmission. It also helps to maintain the hydraulic pressure necessary for the transmission to function. The additives in the transmission fluid can be depleted over time.

 

SERVICE INCLUDES:

  • removing the transmission fill/drain plug to remove the old automatic transmission fluid

  • reinstalling transmission fill/drain plug

  • refilling the transmission with new automatic transmission fluid to the proper level

 

AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION FILTER REPLACEMENT

 

The automatic transmission filter helps remove dirt and contaminants from the automatic transmission fluid.

 

SERVICE INCLUDES:

  • removing the transmission pan

  • removing the old transmission filter and replacing it with a new transmission filter

  • removing the old gasket material

  • replacing the pan gasket with a new gasket and reinstalling the pan

  • refilling the transmission with new automatic transmission fluid to the proper level

 

AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION FLUID EXCHANGE & FILTER REPLACEMENT

 

Automatic transmission fluid lubricates, cools and cleans internal components of the transmission. It also helps to maintain the hydraulic pressure necessary for the transmission to function. The additives in the transmission fluid can be depleted over time.

 

SERVICE INCLUDES:

  • changing the fluid in the transmission system, including the torque converter and transmission cooler

  • removing the transmission pan

  • removing the old transmission filter and replacing it with a new transmission filter

  • removing the old gasket material

  • replacing the pan gasket with a new gasket and reinstalling the pan

  • refilling the transmission with new automatic transmission fluid to the proper level

 

MANUAL TRANSMISSION SERVICE

 

Manual transmission fluid provides lubrication to gears, bearings, shafts, and other internal components. Heat, pressure and friction can slowly break down the additives in the manual transmission fluid. In addition, small particles of metal may come off the gears as they wear and these metal particles can mix with the fluid. Fluids can also become contaminated with water.

 

SERVICE INCLUDES:

  • draining or evacuating the old manual transmission fluid

  • filling the manual transmission fluid with the manufacturer’s recommended type and quantity of new fluid

 

The net result of all these services is to provide better lubrication, improve the holding ability of the friction components, and reduce heat. This means your transmission works better, longer, and you are less likely to face a major transmission repair.
