Transmission Services

First of all, you either have an automatic or manual transmission.

Automatic transmission services:

When it comes to keeping your automatic transmission in good working order, our expert technicians may need to perform one of four services:

  • Drain and fill
  • Filter replacement
  • Fluid exchange
  • Fluid exchange and filter replacement

Drain and fill: The internal parts of your transmission are lubricated, cooled and cleaned by transmission fluid. This fluid also aids functionality by maintaining hydraulic pressure. Additives in the fluid can get depleted with time.To service this:

  • We will remove the old automatic transmission fluid and refill the transmission with new automatic transmission fluid to the level you need

Filter replacement: Like other filters, your automatic transmission filter helps remove dirt and contaminants from fluid. To service this:

  • We will remove the transmission pan and the old filter and replace it with a new one
  • We will remove the old gasket material and replace the pan gasket with a new one
  • We will refill your transmission with new fluid to the proper level

Fluid exchange:The internal parts of your transmission are lubricated, cooled and cleaned by transmission fluid. This fluid also helps maintain the right hydraulic pressure to keep your transmission functioning properly. The additives in the transmission fluid can be depleted over time. Our Automatic

Transmission Fluid Exchange service includes:

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

Fluid exchange and filter replacement:The internal parts of a transmission are lubricated, cooled and cleaned by transmission fluid. This fluid also helps maintain the right hydraulic pressure to keep your transmission functioning properly. The additives in the fluid can be depleted over time. If your transmission needs a fluid exchange:

  • We will change the fluid in the transmission system, including the torque converter and transmission cooler
  • We will remove the transmission pan to get to the old transmission filter
  • We will replace the old filter with a new one
  • We will also remove the old gasket material and replace it with a new pan gasket and reinstall the pan
  • We will refill the transmission with new fluid to the proper level

Manual transmission service:

You’ll find your transmission between the engine and the driving wheels. It’s there acting as a speed and power-changing part of your car. It actually changes the ratio between the engine RPM (revolutions per minute) and driving wheel RPM.

In a manual transmission the transmission fluid lubricates gears, bearings, shafts, and other internal components. Heat, pressure and friction can gradually weaken the additives in your fluid. As gears wear down, small particles of metal may come off and mix with the fluid. Transmission fluids can also get contaminated with water. To service these issues:

  • We will evacuate the old manual transmission fluid and fill your transmission with new fluid according to the recommended manufacturer’s specifications
