Transmission Repair and Service

Transmission Repair and Service

The transmission in a vehicle is responsible for changing the gear of an engine, which means it transfers the engine’s power to the wheels with the purpose of moving the vehicle ahead. Whether you are driving fast, slow, or accelerating for a short burst, it’s up to the transmission to distribute the appropriate level of power. If your vehicle’s transmission fails to function properly, driving becomes virtually impossible.

It’s clear that the transmission is a vital element of your vehicle; it controls the way your car powers itself. If you suspect your transmission is unhealthy or failing, have a technician at Garber Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram inspect it to make sure your shifts stay seamless.

Transmission FAQ’s—

Some common telltale signs include:

  • Hesitation when switching gears
  • A burning smell
  • If there are fluids leaking
  • If gears are slipping
  • A lack of response when shifting into another gear

If you shift your vehicle or attempt to move it forward from a stopped position, signs of a transmission slip include: hesitation to react, revving more than normal, or struggle to move at all. If you are experiencing any of these warning signs, contact a technician at Garber Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram as soon as possible to have an inspection completed; if you wait, the cost of future transmission repairs could skyrocket.

Transmission fluid will generally be a variation of red or pink in color. That being said, if you think your transmission fluid may be leaking, we advise driving right to the service center at Garber Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram. The vehicle should not be driven any further than bringing it in to be serviced, and you may even want to get it towed; you could potentially get stranded or cause a lot of damage to internal parts of the transmission.

There are a few things you can do, including:

  • Make certain that the transmission always has enough fluid.
  • When you get an oil change, have the technician check your transmission fluid to make sure it is filled, clean, and free of leaks.
  • Have the transmission fluid replaced on schedule.

Everything you need to know about transmissions—

The gear shift within a vehicle is likely the most commonly known part of the transmission. Park, Reverse, Neutral, Drive, Low (P-R-N-D-L) are the selections that we have all learned how to use as drivers, which are directly connected to the transmission. These gear options are found in an automatic transmission, which is the most common type in the United States.

However, other forms of transmissions are available in passenger cars and trucks, such as a manual transmission. This option allows the driver to do the shifting themselves, rather than the system performing the shifts automatically. A manual transmission is particularly desired by drivers who command an enthusiast persona or are simply wanting to preserve fuel.

Another type is a CVT, or Continuously Variable Transmission, which technically does not have gears at all; rather, it’s like having one magical gear that’s variable across all driving situations. This transmission allows for maximum efficiency or performance, depending on how the CVT is applied to the vehicle’s mechanics. Regardless of the type of transmission your vehicle uses, if you want seamless shifting on every trip you take, look no further than Garber Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram for transmission service.
