Transmission Service: Smooth Shifting
Automatic transmissions have gotten more sophisticated in recent years for Azusa car owners. Take the number of gears for starters: The base is four speeds, five is very common. Many manufacturers are using six speeds and several have seven or even eight speeds. As you can imagine, this means more parts in your pickup’s transmission.
Today’s transmissions are computer controlled. Some high end transmissions have two or three computers. Our experienced technicians at Raul’s Auto Repair in Azusa receive ongoing training on transmission service and repair.
Duarte, Monrovia, and Sierra Madre car owners trust that transmissions are engineered to last. But CA motorists need to understand that they are also engineered to tighter tolerances. If a portion of the transmission is starved for lubrication, it can lead to failure.
This can happen with not enough fluid. And, if the transmission fluid gets dirty or sludgy, small passages in the transmission can get clogged, then the lubricant is blocked and can’t get to all the parts to protect them, so they wear out prematurely.
Most newer vehicles in Azusa, Monrovia, and Sierra Madre require special transmission fluids – at Raul’s Auto Repair we can make sure you get the type your manufacturer recommends.
As you can imagine, repairing one of these new transmissions can be quite costly at most Arcadia auto repair shops. That’s why manufacturers have a schedule for how often Azusa drivers should change the fluid and what type of fluid to use.
