Our competitively priced transmission services include:
Automatic transmissions shift gears seamlessly, optimizing driving performance by adjusting gears based on various factors. These transmissions typically feature four to five forward gear ratios, along with a Reverse, Park, and Neutral gear. Shifting between gears occurs automatically once the car is in Drive, eliminating the need for a clutch pedal or manual gear shifting, as in a Manual Transmission.
Given the complexity of automatic transmissions, issues should be meticulously assessed by professional auto mechanics.
Your car's clutch serves the vital function of enabling the engine and gearbox to engage and disengage during gear changes. This process allows the engine's output shaft to keep spinning while relieving pressure on the gears, preventing them from shifting improperly.
After the next gear is smoothly selected, the clutch re-engages the engine and gearbox, restoring forward momentum. Over time, particularly in manual transmission vehicles operated incorrectly, the clutch can wear down, diminishing its effectiveness. A damaged clutch can lead to mid-gear change re-engagements of the engine and gearbox, which can significantly impact your transmission's health.
Four-Wheel Drive Transmission
Four-wheel drive (4x4) vehicles boast differential gears, front and rear axles, and a transfer case connected to the transmission. The maintenance of four-wheel drive vehicles necessitates care for the transfer case, front and rear differentials, and transmission fluids. For top-tier service regarding your four-wheel drive transmission, visit us at 12 Sugarloaf St.
Front-Wheel Drive Transmission
In front-wheel drive vehicles, the engine exclusively drives the front wheels. Power flows through the transmission to the final drive, then splits and propels the two front wheels through the drive axles. Front-wheel drive vehicles position the engine, transmission, and related components at the front of the car. For front-wheel drive transmission repairs, rely on Fisher's Garage Inc. in South Deerfield, MA.
Manual Transmission vehicles involve the use of a clutch pedal and gear shift to manually change gears, determined by the vehicle's speed. Manual transmissions can encompass two to eight gears and are categorized into front-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive configurations. Typically, manual transmissions require less maintenance than automatic ones.
A transfer case is a component of four-wheel drive systems in four-wheel drive and all-wheel drive vehicles. It receives power from the transmission and directs it to both front and rear axles. Transfer cases can be chain-driven in most contemporary vehicles. These components connect to the transmission, front and rear axles through drive shafts to ensure maximum control.
Transmission Flush - BETTER
A Transmission Flush is started by running a chemical cleaner through the transmission. We then hook up the flush machine to the transmission cooler lines and, using your transmissions own pump, we flush 16 quarts of new fluid through the transmission completely replacing the old fluid. We finish the service by adding a BG conditioner to enhance the shifting characteristics, dissolve deposits, and help keep seals soft and resistant to leaks.
Pros - This service replaces all the fluid in the transmission including the torque converter and valve body. It also includes a conditioner to help remove deposits.
Cons - This service doesn't replace the filter.
Time - Approximately 45 minutes.
Transmission Service - Filter Change - GOOD
When we change the filter we start by removing the transmission filter pan. Then we clean the sediment from the pan and replace the transmission fluid filter. The pan is then reinstalled with a new gasket and the transmission refilled to the full level on the dipstick.
Pros - This service replaces the filter and allows us to clean the debris from the pan.
Cons - This service doesn't replace the fluid in the torque converter and only replaces three to five quarts of fluid on most vehicles.
Time - Approximately 45 Minutes
