Transmission & Clutch Repair

What is a transmission?
The transmission works in conjunction with your vehicle’s engine to deliver power to your vehicle’s wheels. It doesn’t matter if you have an automatic transmission or a manual transmission as transmission plays a significant role in the overall performance of your vehicle. Be sure to check it at the first sign of problem.

What are the parts of a transmission?

A transmission/transaxle ensures the engine’s output is correctly matched to the speed and load conditions of your vehicle.

The torque converter is connected to the automatic transmission/transaxle input shaft.  It connects, multiplies and interrupts the transfer of engine torque into the transmission.

Universal joints and/or Constant Velocity (CV) joints attach to the driveshaft to transfer output power from the transmission to the rear axle on rear-wheel-drive cars or to the front axle on front-wheel-drive cars. These joints also permit the driveshaft and/or CV shaft to work at an angle.

The various types of automatic transmission fluids serve many purposes: from cleaning, cooling, and lubricating, to transmitting force and pressure, while inhibiting varnish buildup.  This has the effect of continually protecting the transmission.

Typical Wear and Tear
Wear and tear on the transmission can be influenced by:

  • Personal driving habits
