If you are like most people, the very thought of transmission service conjures visions of junkyards, used car salesmen and empty bank accounts. The fact is, the vast majority of major transmission trouble can actually be avoided with some basic knowledge and regular transmission maintenance.
There are a few important things to remember when it comes to keeping your transmission in good shape. Namely that it is a sophisticated piece of machinery, that if ignored can degrade quite quickly. Luckily, you don’t have to be a trained mechanic to help your transmission stay alive and well for the years of use that you intend to subject it to.
Automatic Transmission Repair
Automatic Transmissions shift between gears automatically to optimize driving, and changes gears based on the driver’s throttle pedal, vehicle speed, engine speed, and vehicle load. Typical automatic transmissions have 4-5 forward gear ratios, a Reverse, Park, and Neutral gear. Shifting gears occur automatically once the car is in Drive and there is no need for a clutch pedal or gear shift like there is in a Manual Transmission. Automatic transmission repair is complicated based on all the components that make it up, and you need to have any automatic transmission issues properly assessed by auto mechanics. Call 970-963-2032 to talk to the mechanics of Carbondale Car Care about your transmission problems.
Clutch Repair in Carbondale
There are clutches in both automatic and manual transmission cars, and different types of clutches. When shifting gears, the clutch engages and disengages from the flywheel and transfers the torque through the transmission. Clutches should help your vehicle start and shift gears smoothly. The clutch in your car receives a lot of wear and can eventually wear out. If your clutch begins slipping irregularly or is making noises that are raising suspicion, contact Carbondale Car Care to see if clutch replacement is necessary.
Four-wheel drive Transmission
A four-wheel (4×4) drive vehicle has differential gears, both front and rear axles, and a transfer case attached to the transmission. Four-wheel drive vehicles demand maintenance on the transfer case, front differentials, rear differentials, and transmission fluids. Visit us on 1100 Hwy 133 for service on your four-wheel drive transmission services.
Front-wheel drive Transmission
If your vehicle has Front-wheel drive, the engine drives the front wheels only. The power is routed through the transmission to the final drive where it is split and sent to the two front wheels through the drive axles. The engine, transmission, and additional hardware is all located in the front of the car. If you are in need, Carbondale Car Care of Carbondale, CO will gladly repair front-wheel drive transmission vehicles.
Driving a vehicle with a Manual Transmission requires using the clutch pedal and gear shift to manually shift gears based on the speed of the vehicle. Manual transmissions have been built with anywhere from two to eight gears. Front-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive are the two main configurations for manual transmissions. Typically, manual transmissions require less maintenance then automatic transmissions. At Carbondale Car Care, our auto mechanics can diagnose your vehicle and then recommend the transmission repair or transmission service you need to ensure safety and improve the lifetime of your vehicle.
