What You Need To Know About Transmission Service At Advantage Auto
Automatic transmissions have gotten more sophisticated in recent years for Greer car owners. Take the number of gears for starters: The base is four speeds, five is very common. Many manufacturers are using six speeds and several have seven or even eight speeds. As you can imagine, this means more parts in your minivan’s transmission.
Today’s transmissions are computer controlled. Some high end transmissions have two or three computers. Our experienced technicians at Advantage Auto in Greer receive ongoing training on transmission service and repair.
Lyman, Startex, and Wellford car owners trust that transmissions are engineered to last. But SC motorists need to understand that they are also engineered to tighter tolerances. If a portion of the transmission is starved for lubrication, it can lead to failure.
This can happen with not enough fluid. And, if the transmission fluid gets dirty or sludgy, small passages in the transmission can get clogged, then the lubricant is blocked and can’t get to all the parts to protect them, so they wear out prematurely.
Most newer vehicles in Greer, Startex, and Wellford require special transmission fluids – at Advantage Auto we can make sure you get the type your manufacturer recommends.
As you can imagine, repairing one of these new transmissions can be quite costly at most Duncan auto repair shops. That’s why manufacturers have a schedule for how often Greer drivers should change the fluid and what type of fluid to use.
