Let’s face it, there’s nothing fun about driving with a broken transmission. From burning smells to a dragging clutch, and even the inability to change gears can all be signs that your transmission is faulty. So, when it comes to performing maintenance on your vehicle, a transmission service is one of the absolute essentials for ensuring that you stay happy and issue-free while out on the roads. At SSC Mechanics, we do everything we can to make sure that your vehicle is safe, secure, and free from any potential faults. So, when you come in for your next transmission service, you can feel safe in the knowledge that your vehicle is in safe hands.
In simple terms, your car’s transmission is what allows it to give enough energy to the wheels to go the speed you need them to. In other words, without a fully functioning transmission, you and your vehicle won’t have complete control of how fast you’re going. Think of it as the motorised vehicle equivalent of a bicycle’s gear shifter, allowing your wheels to be pushed with varying degrees of force. With all that in mind, you can see how important having your transmission taken care of is, and how many issues can arise from it being poorly maintained.
Whilst it can often be overlooked, your transmission should be serviced and checked as part of your standard vehicle checkups. So, in other words, it’s best to ensure that your transmission is getting checked regularly before issues begin to arise. With that said, there are certain signs to look out for that suggest that it’s time for you to bring your vehicle in for a transmission checkup, including:
This is by no means an exhaustive list, as a bad transmission can create problems across the majority of your driving experience. However, it should give you an idea of the scope of issues that can arise from leaving issues with transmission unfixed.
In most cases, the process of an automatic transmission service is relatively standard and starts with removing the transmission pan and making sure that elements such as the filter and fluid levels are in order. From there, we look for signs of wear and tear, trying to find which may lead to future issues if left unchecked. From here, we can perform any required maintenance and ensure that the transmission is working perfectly as intended.
With all this in mind, changes can occur in cases where the manufacturer’s specifications require an alternative approach. In these cases, wherever possible, we will refer to the manufacturer’s logbook and proceed accordingly to avoid any issues with your vehicle’s warranty.
Transmission services start from $140.
