Transmission : A mechanical part that helps distribute the power from the engine the wheels. There are 3 basic types of transmissions, automatic shift, manual shift and automatic cvt. Transmissions use many of the following parts: clutches, differential, flywheel,gears, input sensor, neutral safety switch, output sensor, planetary gear, shift solenoids, shifter, speed sensor,synchronizers, torque converter, transmission filter, transmission flush, transmission gaskets, transmission module,transmission seals, and valve bodyTransmissions use gears or gear ratios to help get the car, truck, van or suv moving. Once the vehicle is moving, gears are changed to optimize the engines power to move the vehicle. Transmissions come in many different shapes like transverse, 4×4, rear wheel drive, mid-ship, transaxle and 2×4. Typical signs of a bad transmission may include slipping gears, non smooth shifting, grinding during shifts, no shifts, engine runs but car doesn’t move and or bad sounds when transmission is in gear or shifting.
Typical problems may even start with a transmission leak, overheating, or lack of fluid flush/ filter/ maintenence. If you are having transmission problems, call Guy’s Automotive for a quote on a repair, rebuild or replacement of your transmission.
