In order for a car to run, a properly operating transmission is critical.  The transmission allows the power from the engine to rotate the wheels, which in return allows your car to operate and get you to your destination.  If you have a transmission that is damaged or slipping, The Transmission Shop McKinney can get it back in shape quickly and expertly to get you back on the road.

Undoubtedly, automatic transmissions are the most preferred transmission to install in a vehicle.  While an automatic transmission is effortless to operate, it's actually a very complex piece of machinery.  It includes pumps, valves, filters, and fluids that all work together to keep your car in working order.  If you notice your transmission slipping or any other change in your transmission's performance, there are several possible causes.  Regardless of what is causing the problem, it will definitely not get better on its own.  At the very first sign of a transmission problem, it's important to seek out professional help. Come to The Transmission Shop McKinney!  We can find the root of the problem quickly and keep it from becoming a bigger, more expensive issue.  Immediate service can also prevent you from being in the dangerous situation of an unexpected breakdown and becoming stranded on a major highway or busy road.

Manual transmissions are not as common as they used to be, but in case your vehicle does happen to have a manual transmission, it's good to know that clutches and throw out bearings are the cause of  most common problems.  Also common to manual transmissions is the problem of turning the flywheel once it has become excessively worn.

When dealing with a manual transmission, it's a good rule of thumb to replace both the clutch and the throw out bearing when one of the two breaks.  Doing this will save you the problem and expense of needing to have the transmission removed a second time.

Following are some signs that may indicate your manual transmission needs service:  difficulty in changing the transmission between gears, slipping at take off or when accelerating rapidly, and excessive noise or vibration.

Whether your car has an automatic transmission or a manual transmission, one of the best preventative measures you can take is to be current with the manufacturer's recommended service schedule.  In your vehicle's owner's manual, you will find spaces for you to enter the dates of service completion, ensuring you stay on schedule.  Following this schedule is one easy way to help extend the life expectancy of your transmission.  Proper transmission maintenance is always easier and much less expensive than waiting for a problem or damage to occur.  It is also important to maintain a proper transmission fluid level.  The fluid is vital for the transmission to perform correctly and also aids in the cooling of the transmission.

One of the biggest challenges to an automatic transmission in the prevention of overheating.  Needless to say, it wouldn't be a good idea to drive your car on a hot Texas day with a low level of transmission fluid as this could cause permanent damage to the transmission.  Your owner's manual provides simple instructions on how to check the transmission fluid level for your vehicle.  Adding more fluid is only necessary if the dipstick shows that the level is indeed low, and then you only need to add enough fluid to bring the fluid level to the mark.

Whether you need a basic routine transmission service or you are experiencing changes in your transmission's performance, The Transmission Shop McKinney can help.  We will provide superior, affordable transmission services that will keep your vehicle's transmission performing correctly.  The Transmission Shop has knowledgeable mechanics ready to help you, whether you  need your transmission repaired, replaced, or overhauled.  Call or come see us today!
