Transmission Service and Repair

The vehicle transmission is one of the most essential components of the vehicle that is responsible for getting your car moving. It's job is to transfer power created from the engine to the wheels so that they start turning as you accelerate. Some car transmissions are automatic, but others are manual, which require the driver to take extra steps to ensure effective vehicle operation.

Whether in automatic or manual systems, a transmission enables the proper gear ratio between the drive wheels and the engine to adjust the vehicle's speed to either speed up or slow down. There are different types of transmissions depending on the vehicle's age and make/model, and they require regular inspections and service to ensure the car functions optimally and driving remains safe.
