Transmission Service and Repair in Castro Valley, CA
Transmission is a crucial part of your vehicle – as the name suggests, it transmits power from the engine to the wheels. At Adams Autoworx in Castro Valley, we offer both transmission services and transmission repairs. The most important of these services is the transmission fluid change, also known as transmission fluid flush, but we provide a full range of transmission services, including transmission replacement, if necessary.
Transmission failure will disable a vehicle and will require transmission replacement, which is an expensive repair. Fortunately, modern transmissions are exceedingly well made, and if well maintained, will rarely fail.
To keep your vehicle in top shape, we recommend transmission fluid change every 30,000 – 40,000 miles. Transmission fluid ages, as all fluids do, and with age its chemical composition changes as well. Transmission fluid also picks up the debris that naturally occurs when metal parts move in close proximity. When our technicians perform transmission fluid change, we remove old fluid and accumulated debris and provide the transmission with new fluid that is specially formulated for the transmission in your vehicle. It has the correct cleaning and lubricating properties and protects your vehicle’s transmission. Depending on the transmission type, your vehicle may also have a transmission fluid filter, in which case our technicians will replace the filter as well.
If your vehicle experiences transmission issues, it does not necessarily mean that the entire transmission has to be replaced. When you notice shifting problems, it could be a faulty sensor that sends incorrect information to the onboard computer, or the electrical system may have failed to properly transfer data. Such issues are correctable without major surgery – in these cases transmission does not need to be disassembled, and repairs can often be completed in a single day.
Your vehicle’s transmission needs service or repairs when the following symptoms occur:
- transmission fluid leak occurs – transmission fluid is usually red – it is easy to recognize
- rumbling or grinding sounds when the transmission is shifting gears
- check engine light comes “on” – a number of conditions, including transmission range sensor issues, and transmission fluid pressure issues can illuminate check engine light.
- transmission slips when shifting.
- transmission fails to shift gears
