If your vehicle is not operating properly, you may need transmission service from a professional. Transmissions can fail due to age, defects, accidents, and improper maintenance. Here at Kernersville Auto Center, we can diagnose any transmission problem. More importantly, we can help prevent problems before they start with transmission maintenance services. At our shop, we would on both manual and automatic transmissions.
Common Signs that You Need Transmission Repair
Car problems are not always quick and easy to diagnose. However, here are a few signs that you may need transmission service or repair:
- Grinding or shaking, especially when changing gears
- Weird noises such as clunking or whining
- Burning smells
- Leaking fluids
- Unresponsive to shifting
In addition, most vehicles have a check-engine light that responds to transmission problems. If your check engine light comes on, you should always take your car to a professional as soon as possible. All vehicle problems, transmission or otherwise, get worse when you don’t have them repaired. If you do need a repair, we use top-of-the-line parts to fix your vehicle.
We always start with a full diagnosis. Our ASE-certified mechanics will make sure to find the cause of any problem. Additionally, we check your vehicle for issues that might arise in the future. We provide a range of quality services to help keep your vehicle on the road safely. Best of all, our mechanics have experience with manual transmissions as well as automatic transmissions. So, you can bring all of your vehicles to Kernersville Auto Center.
Preventative Transmission Service Options
The best way to avoid a large repair bill in the future is to maintain your vehicle. Our preventative services for transmissions include both fluid and filter change. Moreover, when you maintain your transmission regularly, it decreases the strain on your engine. So, preventative maintenance is good for keeping your engine in working condition too.
Transmissions work to maintain speed and fuel economy. With the use of gears, your transmission controls how fast your car moves. Therefore, without a working transmission, your car is almost unusable. Even minor issues can impact your vehicle and your wallet. If your transmission isn’t working at its peak performance, you’ll see a decrease in fuel economy. Our licensed mechanics can help you lower your fuel costs and decrease your carbon footprint. With both manual and automatic transmissions, maintenance will help.
Keep in mind that while a transmission flush (fluid change) can help your car run better, it is not magic. For bigger transmission problems, you may need repair or replacement. However, a full flush will help your transmission last longer. When you top off your fluid, you keep your transmission operational, but without the full benefits of a fluid change.
