Transmission service at the Garage

A transmission service is a regular part of routine car maintenance, just like an oil change. At the Garage we work on vehicle transmission problems every day. 

In a typical transmission service we’ll replace fluid and clean out pumps & filters. The primary aspect of the service is flushing out the old transmission fluid and replacing it with new fluid.

However, a complete transmission service should also include: examining the sump pump or pan (if possible), replacing or cleaning the filter, cleaning the pan and installing it with a new pan gasket. Not only do we replace transmission fluid and filter, we also check various components to make sure they are in good working order

A failing transmission can be a real pain. And because it’s such a vital part of your vehicle’s regular operation, you can’t turn a blind eye.. it needs to be looked at straight away.

Transmission repair, rebuild, or overhaul?

If you've heard variations of the lingo. Don't worry, it all means the same thing!

What's typically involved?

Completely rebuilding a transmission involves removing the transmission and completely disassembling it. Each component is inspected for damage or excessive wear. Parts that are in good shape will be cleaned for use in the reassembled transmission, while any parts that need to be replaced will be taken care of at this point. Clutches, seals, gaskets, and any other wear items will be replaced as well.

  • Burning smell from overheated transmission fluid
  • Delay or hesitation when you change gear
  • Puddles of fluid under the car
  • Noises when the car is in neutral

Transmission problems should never be ignored. Maintenance repairs on transmissions, like replacing fluid or sealing a leak, can be done quickly and at little expense. 

How often should I get a transmission service?

Every 2 to 3 years.
After the first transmission fluid change at 60,000 miles, it is recommended that you regularly continue this maintenance service every 2 to 3 years or 25K-30K miles. Not only do your driving habits affect the breakdown of transmission fluid, but so can putting off getting the service done.
