Part one of a series explores the services that are offered at a professional transmission repair shop in Mesa.
Normal Transmission Service Part 1: Transmission Fluid
Normal transmission service consists of such tasks as having an auto mechanic check your transmission ﬂuid. During a fluid check, a mechanic is going to take a look at how the transmission fluid looks as well as how much it is. Unlike oil that burns off, transmission fluid should remain relatively constant. So if the level is down, it usually indicates that there is a problem. Some transmission fluid service though involves replacement and also cleaning.
Usually transmission fluid is replaced every 30,000 miles. or as recommended by the vehicle manufacturer. If your transmission’s working correctly, and your fluid looks good, you probably won’t need to get a fluid replacement. When you’re getting your fluid checked this may also include replacing the transmission filter. That leads to the next step: a transmission inspection.
Why Should I Get a Transmission Inspection?
There are several reasons why you should get a transmission inspection done. First off, a transmission inspection is far cheaper than if you need to overhaul your transmission, or replace it. Another thing is that just as it is better to get a check up before you have a medical emergency, the same holds true with auto service.
You want to be able to depend on your car. If your car breaks down, the way it will often work is that it will break down at the most inconvenient time. And even with a warranty, transmission repair is not cheap. Sometimes, we are asked by our customers “Why does it cost so much to fix my transmission?” Well, like all auto repairs, your repair cost will be a combined total of both parts and labor. Even a rebuilt transmission is expensive, and when you add in labor charges it can send your bill up.
So, be smart. Make sure you have warranty coverage on your car. Rotate your tires every now and then to make sure they wear evenly. Replace your car’s oil and fluids periodically. And get your car in for transmission service in Mesa.
