For Automatic Gearbox in Salford Repairs, Speak to the Experts
Posted on by
If you drive a car with an automatic gearbox in Salford, you probably don’t give much thought to your gearbox. If you’ve never owned and driven a car with a manual transmission you would be even less likely to think about your car’s automatic gearbox. Continued demand for easier and smoother gear shifting to send power to your car’s engine keeps automotive engineers on their toes. So far, they’ve done a great job. It’s possible to drive a car for most of its useful life and never have an issue with the transmission. Practically speaking, transmissions should be checked during your annual service appointment for performance. Transmission fluid does deteriorate over time so it’s a good idea to change it after 150,000 miles. It will extend the life of your transmission.
Automatic transmissions have differences depending on the car manufacturer. Therefore, in Salford, automatic gearbox service and repairs should be carried out by specialists. That’s what we do. The differences are not just among the many makes and models but also the year your car was manufactured. We have dedicated 40 years to the care and maintenance of all transmissions, manual and automatic. Automatic is a little more labour intensive. If you are experiencing transmission trouble, we can troubleshoot the problem and make the repairs. If it’s beyond ordinary repairs, we have a team that specialises in rebuilds. That will save you a lot of money over a new replacement and give you good service. We’re an independent garage, so you are saving money before you walk in the door.
Since your automatic gearbox in Salford generally works well, you may not know the warning signs of a problem. If the transition between gears is not smooth but jerky, you have a problem. Another symptom of problems is any noise coming from the transmission. If your engine winds out too far in first or second gear then slams into second or third gear, you already have a serious problem. Your gearbox is in drive and the engine is revving but the car isn’t going anywhere. That’s a gearbox problem. At the first sign of trouble, contact us and schedule your car in for an inspection. Transmission damage is lessened by attending to it early. We know how to take the right steps and make the repairs.
