Your automatic transmission is probably the most complicated and least understood major component in your vehicle.
While it is a complex system, your transmission can be described as the part that provides controlled power to your car; this can encompass an entire drivetrain, including diffs, clutch and gearbox; in later model cars, your transmission is a combination of sophisticated hydraulics and computer-controlled components.
The life expectancy of a vehicle's transmission can be affected by many factors, such as poor driving habits, hauling and towing heavy loads, overheating and leaking fluid, however routine servicing helps to keep debris and worn friction material out of solenoids and valves which can cause premature wear.
When we service your transmission, we look at:
- New transmission fluid
- New pan gasket
- Any adjustments as needed
We also inspect components related to your transmission, such as:
- Cooler hoses
- Inhibitor switches
Our expert mechanic team recommend you have your transmission checked and serviced at least every 12 months or 20,000 kms, based on whichever comes first, in order to minimise risk of any possible damage.
