The transmission of your vehicle turns your engine speed into torque, puts the vehicle into the appropriate gear, and is responsible for allowing you to go forward and reverse.
Diagnosis of a failed transmission can be challenging, but there are some signs to look for:
- Vehicle won’t move
- Vehicle will move forward, but not in reverse; or vice versa
- Vehicle has trouble moving uphill
- While driving, the vehicle feels like it “slips”
- Takes a long time to shift
- Shifting is difficult and “jerky”
Often times, these issues are attributed to a transmission leak or old transmission fluid. If there is damage to the transmission itself, Auto Doctors can repair your transmission or install a new one if necessary.
Additionally, Auto Doctors performs clutch repair and will resurface the flywheel, saving you money.
Consider a transmission flush every 60,000 miles to prevent damage to your transmission. Auto Doctors’ offers a BG Chemical flush which will completely remove all of the old fluid and replace it with clean transmission fluid. Some other shops only drain and refill and don’t do a full flush, leaving some of the contaminants in the new fluid.
As you can see, whatever transmission problem you may experience, Auto Doctors has you covered.
