You don’t need to look any further for the best transmission service and repair in town. Our experienced technicians know manual and automatic transmissions like the backs of their hands and we can maintain your car, truck, or SUV’s transmission as well as repair it. At Collins Auto Care, we only use top quality fluid and parts to ensure your transmission operates efficiently for the lifetime of your vehicle.
Transmission Fluid Flush
You get your oil changed every 3,000 miles and your transmission oil should be changed every 30,000 miles. If you haven’t put 30,000 miles on your vehicle in two years, the fluid should be flushed anyway. Clean transmission oil – or fluid, whichever you prefer – keeps the gears shifting smoothly and prevents transmission parts from overheating. Sounds just like your motor oil, right? It kind of is. Dirty or old transmission fluid can leave contaminants in the transmission system and overheat the system.
Transmission Fluid Leaks
Transmission fluid leaks are most commonly found coming from the system seals, the transmission pan gasket, or the transmission cooler lines. Sometimes, the transmission system shifts and separates slightly and this will cause fluid to leak from the system. The most common sign of a transmission leak – aside from seeing the fluid on your garage floor – is pink to red fluid leaking underneath your vehicle close to the center and not the front. If you notice a leak, have it inspected right away to avoid damage.
Transmission Service and Repair
We offer our customers the best transmission service and repair in the community. If you do think your transmission is leaking oil, bring your vehicle into our shop right away so we can find the leak and fix it. Driving with low transmission fluid, whether you drive an automatic or stick, can damage the transmission and affect its performance. The fluid helps the gears shift seamlessly and when it’s low, your gears will grind or slip as they shift. A tranny service every 30,000 miles helps prevent this.
Transmission repair is often necessary for older, high-mileage vehicles, and we will keep the repairs to a minimum. Our experienced technicians can find out what is wrong with your vehicle’s transmission and provide you with a comprehensive estimate of all repairs. We are here to discuss your concerns with you and answer any questions you may have. Whether your transmission refuses to switch between gears or your clutch is slipping, we can fix the problem and get you back out on the road in no time.
