Manual Transmission Work
Let's start by covering the basics of a manual transmission (MT). The name comes from the driver having to manually shift the gears using the clutch. Manuals do not require as much maintenance as automatics. They are less technical making them easier and cheaper to diagnose. The MT is a very delicate part of the car so we suggest you leave the crafty repair to us. Common maintenance needed on MTs include:
Automatic Transmission Work
Automatic transmission's use a computer to automatically change gears as the car moves. Automatic's increase the price of a car and are less fuel efficient but usually thought as easier to drive. ATs are very technical causing the diagnosis process to require more time and cost. While common maintenance on AT's may sound similar to those of a manual, they are handled very differently. Common maintenance includes:
Keep Your Eyes and Ears Open
To avoid expensive transmission work or a complete replacement, there are precautions you can take. The key is to listen, feel, and look out for any abnormalities while driving. If your car shows signs of leakage it could be transmission fluid and loss of this fluid can lead to bigger and more expensive problems. If you feel or hear unsteady shifting you should bring your car to us because sudden shifts can cause more damage. Most importantly, careless driving behaviors and using your car beyond its intended uses can put extreme strain on the transmission.
