Understanding the Automotive Transmission
The role of the transmission in a car’s performance should not be overlooked. While you may view it as simply the means to get from Drive to Reverse, it’s an entire network of parts that rely on each other for proper and safe driving dynamics. In simplest terms, the transmission uses specific gear ratios to transmit the engine power to the wheels effectively. There are two main transmission types in today’s cars: automatic and manual. Some manufacturers have been adopting a continuously variable transmission in the last decade. It is most similar to an automatic transmission; instead of gears, it utilizes pulleys and a belt. While the mechanics and components used in all three transmission types are different in some respects, each serves the same purpose. At Dave’s Ultimate Automotive in Cedar Park, Texas, we have the tools and the know-how to inspect, diagnose, and treat a bevy of transmission-related issues! We encourage you to reach out to our ASE-Certified team today for all your transmission repair and service needs.
Signs of Transmission Problems
While transmissions are typically a worry-free system, that doesn’t mean you can neglect it. Your transmission needs inspecting, just like the engine, tires, and brakes. Your owner’s manual will let you know the intervals at which this should occur. However, if you start to experience a change in your transmission’s behavior, we recommend not delaying making an appointment. In automatic transmissions, you may notice a grinding or shaking while in gear, lack of engagement or response, a whining or humming noise, or slipping gears. Any number of problems can occur and warrant transmission repairs. A transmission fluid breakdown, a lousy shifter cable, a faulty bearing, or a bad internal sealing surface can occur. If you drive a manual transmission, symptoms of a problem can include difficulty when shifting gears, a squealing or thumping sound, grinding, or the inability to get into gear. A myriad of issues can be the cause, such as worn-out gears, a loose transmission mount, synchronizer issues, or a bad gasket. Rest assured that with our state-of-the-art tools and expertise, our transmission repair technicians can handle anything that comes our way!
