Over 90% of all automatic transmission failures are due to overheating and fluid contamination.
Periodically checking fluid levels and quality is critical to the life of your transmission; your transmission fluids protect your internal parts, keep them cool, and helps keep your transmission seals soft.
Come see how our experts can help keep your transmission running smoothly.

Automatic transmission fluid (ATF) lubricates and cools your car’s automatic transmission. It also serves as a transport medium for vital additives such as seal softeners, anti-foaming agents,lubricants and detergents.
To extend the life and improve the performance of your transmission, it’s important to have its ATF replaced completely according to your manufacturer’s recommended schedule. That’s because heat and mileage cause the vital additives in ATF to become oxidized, depleted, and inert. And worn-out ATF can result in rough shifting, accelerated wear and even transmission failure.
There are two types of transmissions on the road today: manual and automatic. The main difference between these two transmissions is that an automatic shifts gears automatically while the manual requires you to shift them yourself.
Manual Transmission Replacement
When replacing a manual transmission, there are a few other services you should include. Be sure to check the condition of the clutch, flywheel, and rear main engine oil seal. Also, check the condition of the transmission mounts and determine if they need to be replaced.
Automatic Transmission Replacement
When replacing the automatic transmission, there are a few other services you should include. Be sure to flush out the automatic transmission cooler lines and cooler. Check the condition of the cooler lines, the flywheel or flex plate, the rear main engine oil seal, and any transmission mounts that may need to be replaced.
