Your car’s automatic transmission is the vehicle’s most complicated and least understood major component. In later model cars is is a combination of sophisticated hydraulics and computer controlled components. All Fix Motors recommends servicing every 12 months or 20,000kms whichever comes first.
Transmission servicing involves new transmission fluid, filter, new pan gasket and adjustments where applicable. An inspection is carried out to components related to the transmission such as cooler hoses, pipes, mountings, inhibitor switch and linkages.
Routine servicing helps to keep debris and worn friction material out of solenoids and valves which can cause premature wear.
The life expectancy of a vehicle’s transmission can be affected by many factors, poor driving habits, hauling and towing heavy loads, overheating and leaking fluid.
Our goal is to ensure that all work is completed right the first time at the lowest cost possible. So if your vehicle requires a transmission service please give us a call and we will be happy to book you in.
As always we will discuss your vehicle’s requirements and quote you before we commence working on your vehicle, so that you know upfront what will be done and how much it will cost.
