Transmission Service and Repair in Albany, CA
Adams Autoworx Albany is a full service auto repair facility, and transmission service and repair is one of the most important services we offer. Automotive transmission is a part of the complex system that transfers power from the engine to the wheels. When the transmission problems occur, it’s time to head to your friendly Adams Autoworx repair shop in Albany to get help for your vehicle.
Now for the good news – not all transmission problems mean expensive and time consuming repairs. Modern automobiles are loaded with sensors – sensor failure may cause the transmission to shift incorrectly because it is receiving incorrect signals from the on-board computer. Bad connection to the on-board computer, or a defective solenoid pack, can also results in incorrect shifting. These problems can be repaired without the need to disassemble entire transmission – you can drop off your vehicle in the morning, and pick it up the same day in the late afternoon – fixed and ready for the road.
To keep transmission working at its best, we recommend that you bring your car in every 40,000 miles for transmission fluid replacement. Depending on the type of transmission in your vehicle, it may be possible to replace the transmission fluid and transmission fluid filter. Automatic transmissions will also have the pan gasket replaced. Replacing transmission fluid removes old fluid that is no longer properly protecting your transmission, and it also removes any metal particles that transmission fluid picked up. This is especially important for manual transmissions, as they do not have filters to catch those impurities.
Signs that transmission needs professional attention:
- Transmission fluid leak – transmission fluid is dyed red so it’s easy to recognize transmission fluid leaks.
- Transmission slips when shifting.
- Grinding or rumbling sounds when transmission is shifting – these are clues that tell you it’s time to visit your friendly Albany mechanic.
- Failure to change gears
Listed above are only some of the more obvious signs that your vehicle’s transmission needs professional attention. We work with both automatic and manual transmissions.
