What is a Transmission Service?
The transmission in your vehicle – whether standard or automatic uses a combination of gears, clutches or bands to deliver power from the engine to drive your vehicle at varying speeds, while keeping the engine speed within a safe and efficient range of RPMs. From something as routine as changing your transmission fluid to major transmission repair London Ontario, Steel Horse Automotive has your transmission needs covered.
When to Change Transmission Fluid
Simply put – when it needs to be. While it is not exposed to the same conditions as engine oil, that doesn’t mean it lasts forever. Over time, transmission fluid loses it’s lubrication properties, it picks up material from normal wear and tear or it may become contaminated from moisture or other means. Manufacturers specify recommended fluid change intervals – we have access to this information and can recommend when it should be changed, along with the filter, using the correct fluid and procedures.
Between the transmission and the wheels , there are a lot of complex, and some not so complex, components that make up the drivetrain of your vehicle. These can include transfer cases in four wheel drive or all-wheel drive vehicles, drive shafts, and differentials, CV shafts and wheel bearings.
