Types of Transmission Repair and Service
Engines run at thousands of RPMs, putting them under considerable strain, and the transmission significantly helps your engine work smarter instead of harder. Whether you drive an automatic, a manual, or a CVT, your transmission needs care just like the rest of your car. We’re equipped to handle the nuts and bolts of transmission repair and service here at Eric’s Car Care in Houston, Texas. We can inspect your transmission unit, check for wear and damage, replace the transmission filter, change the transmission fluid, and make sure everything is in top shape. If one of the more major components requires maintenance or repair, such as the driveline, differential, or clutch, we are happy to assist. If necessary, we can even perform a transmission rebuild or entire transmission replacement. Simple maintenance goes a long way toward keeping your car, truck, or SUV in an optimal and safe condition. Please consult your owner’s manual for suggested maintenance intervals, or feel free to contact us for assistance at 713-667-9293.
Signs of Transmission Problems
Did you know your transmission may be giving you a clue it’s not working properly? If your car has an automatic transmission, keep an eye out for grinding or shaking while in gear, a lack of response when shifting, a whining or humming noise, or slipping gears. A manual transmission has its own set of warning signs that may warrant transmission repair, including a whirring or squealing noise, a grinding noise, and difficulty when shifting gears. A manual transmission may also jump out of gear, get stuck in one gear, or be unable to properly get into gear. We recommend you stop in at our repair shop for a full inspection for any odd noise, sensation, or odor (such as burning) you experience. On top of maintenance, you can help your transmission last longer and prevent transmission repair by practicing proper driver etiquette. If you have a manual transmission, change gears smoothly and don’t force the changes. If you have an automatic, never change gears (for example, from reverse to drive) while the car is in motion.
