A smoothly running transmission is critical in order for a car to run properly.  The purpose of the transmission is to transfer power from the engine to the rotation of the wheels.  If your transmission is slipping, or is damaged, the experts at The Transmission Shop McKinney can get it back in working order, thus getting you back on the road in a jiffy.

There's no doubt that automatic transmissions are the most preferred transmission in a vehicle.  But while an automatic transmission seems effortless to operate, it's actually a quite complex piece of machinery.  It includes several components, including pumps, valves, filters, and fluids.  These components all work in harmony together in order for your car to work correctly.  If you ever notice that your transmission is slipping or if you become aware of other changes in your transmission's performance, get it checked out immediately.  Whatever is causing the problem, it will definitely not get better on it's own.  Come to The Transmission Shop McKinney and we will find the root of the problem quickly and prevent it from becoming a bigger, more expensive problem.  Seeking help immediately can also prevent you from being in the dangerous situation of breaking down and becoming stranded.

Manual transmissions are not as commonplace as they used to be, but if your vehicle does happen to have one, there are some things you should know about the transmission.  First of all, it's good to know that most problems in a manual transmission are caused by the clutch and throw out bearings.  Another common problem area for manual transmissions is the issue of turning the flywheel after it has become worn over time.  In regards to a manual transmission, it's wise to replace both the clutch and the throw out bearing whenever one of the two breaks.  By doing this, you will save the time and expense of needing to have your transmission removed a second time.

There are a few indicators that your manual transmission is having problems.  These include:  slipping at take off or when accelerating rapidly, difficulty in changing the transmission between gears, and excessive noise or vibration.

One of the best preventative measures you can take to avoid transmission problems is to stay current with the manufacturer's recommended service schedule.  This is true whether your vehicle has an automatic transmission or a manual transmission.  If you look in your vehicle's owner's manual, you will find a place to enter the dates of service completion.  Using this maintenance log will help you stay on schedule.  Following this maintenance schedule is one of the easiest ways to help extend the life expectancy of your transmission.  Of course, proper maintenance is always easier and much less expensive than dealing with an unexpected problem or damage.  Another vital, but simple way to keep your transmission working properly is making sure the transmission fluid level is sufficient.  This fluid is critical to the smooth performance of your  car as it aids in the cooling of your transmission.

The prevention of overheating is one of the biggest challenges for an automatic transmission.  If you were to drive your car on a hot Texas day with little or no transmission fluid, it could cause permanent damage to your vehicle's transmission.  If the dipstick indicates that the transmission fluid level is indeed low, then you need only fill it up to the "full" mark.

The Transmission Shop McKinney can help you regardless of whether you need just a basic routine transmission service or your transmission is showing signs of a more serious problem.  We offer skilled, affordable transmission services that will keep your vehicle running smoothly.  Call or come see us today - our knowledgeable mechanics are ready to help you!
