Concerned about an unusual shift feel or driving conditions? That may be your transmission telling you something is wrong. Below are some signs of a worn out transmission:
In conducting a transmission rebuild, Richmond Transmission Service can do a complete overhaul or simply replace a few worn parts without an entire transmission replacement. The suggested course of action depends on the current overall health of your transmission. But why, should you find that you need repairs, is a transmission rebuild service a good option to consider?
Think back to the gearbox reference mentioned earlier. With a transmission comprised of so many parts, it can be costly to replace the entire thing; not only are you replacing the base structure but also each individual gear that goes into making the transmission function properly. Instead of replacing the transmission, along with any parts that are still functional, the process of a rebuild focuses only the components that are wearing down. In doing so, a transmission rebuild service can help you avoid the relatively large costs of purchasing a replacement while optimizing your current transmission.
In order to identify worn parts during a rebuild, those working on the rebuild may conduct a thorough inspection and cleaning of each of the many gears to make sure the rebuild offers optimal functionality. This inspection allows us, at Richmond Transmission Service, to identify any worn down parts that need attention. With a transmission rebuild completed by the right professionals, you can have your transmission operating like new.
Normally, a transmission rebuild will have your car ready to go home after just three or four days. This saves a significant amount of time versus replacing your transmission, which may result in a wait time of a week or more while the shop locates, orders, ships, and finally installs the proper parts.In essence, choosing a transmission rebuild service can offer you a cost effective, functional, and oftentimes quicker solution to your transmission needs. Alongside rebuilds, Richmond Transmission Service offers an array of transmission services so that you may rest easy when it comes time to repairs.
Now that you know the signs of a worn out transmission and what options you have for repair, let’s look at why your transmission is important. Like an engine, it is a vital component comprised of parts that wear down over time. However, instead of a machine, a transmission is usually in reference to a gearbox. It works differently for automatic and manual cars.
Whether your transmission is manual or automatic, you can take steps to help prevent excessive wear and tear. With the transmission a key player in keeping your car running smoothly—or running at all—and also being one of the most expensive components in a vehicle, keep the following tips in mind:
