Your vehicle’s transmission is a crucial part of your vehicle’s operation. Without properly maintaining the transmission, the transmission may start making grinding noises, slipping gears, shifting hard or not shifting correctly. At Luyet Automotive, we can perform your transmission maintenance to help your transmission continue to run safely and efficiently. Changing your transmission fluid and transmission filter, can keep your transmission fluid fresh and help keep the transmission from getting too hot and damaging the transmission. When transmission services are not done, the transmission is susceptible to heat damage and could cause the transmission to wear out prematurely.
Just like your engine, you should have your transmission serviced regularly. When Luyet Automotive services your transmission, we:
- Remove and inspect the pan
- Clean or replace the screen
- Clean the pan
- Reinstall the pan
- Install a new gasket
- Replace old transmission fluid with new, high quality fluid
- Make any additional needed changes and adjustments
By replacing the old transmission fluid, the expert team at Luyet Automotive essentially gives your vehicle’s transmission new life. The new fluid restores your clutch’s holding power. This reduces slip and heat production. Additionally, flushing the old fluid gets rid of small bits of clutch material and metal shavings, which can damage your transmission by clogging passages and wedging themselves between moving parts. Getting rid of the old fluid reduces wear within the transmission.
Replacing old fluid with new also provides better lubrication within the transmission, which boosts the holding ability of the transmission’s friction components. Improved lubrication also results in less heat. By decreasing friction and heat, your transmission will work better for a longer amount of time. A simple service can save you the money and time that come with a major transmission repair or replacement.
If you are having any trouble with your transmission or don’t know if or when you have had a transmission service, give our service professionals a call today to schedule your appointment. We want to keep your vehicle’s transmission running properly and ensure it has a long-lasting, smooth operation.
