Gone are the days of using light duty vehicles simply for utility. You need a vehicle that can keep up with your workload and your day to day life, and we’re here to make sure it’s running smoothly. Light duty trucks are classified as trucks or truck like vehicles with a gross vehicle weight up to 8,500 pounds, and a payload capacity of up to 4,000 pounds. This includes vehicles such as pick-up trucks, sports utility vehicles (SUV), moving vans, and more. The transmissions on these vehicles are designed to allow for quick gear changes for improved acceleration and optimum fuel economy.
Much like cars, light duty truck transmissions break because small issues go unnoticed and turn into big problems. The three main causes in auto transmission failure is clogged transmission fluid filter, leaking transmission fluid, and low transmission fluid level and quality. The filter in a transmission helps to keep the fluid clean and if the filter becomes clogged it will not let the needed amount of fluid through. With the lack of cooling transmission fluid comes a lack of lubrication which causes the transmission to either grind to a halt or overheat. Low transmission fluid will have this same effect and same with if your transmission is leaking fluid. At Richmond Transmission Service we will check on all of these problem causing issues so you’ll avoid having bigger problems down the road.
