Our transmission services include repairs to: automatic transmission, clutches, four-wheel drive transmission, front-wheel drive transmission, manual transmission, transfer cases
Automatic transmissions automatically shift gears based on throttle pedal, vehicle speed, engine speed, and vehicle load.
Clutches make starting and shifting smooth. When shifting gears, the clutch engages and disengages from the flywheel to transfer the torque through the transmission. The clutch, however, is a part of your vehicle that receives a lot of wear.
Four-wheel drive transmission
A four-wheel drive vehicle has differential gears, front and rear axles, and a transfer case attached to the transmission.
Front-wheel drive transmission
The engine drives the front wheels only in front-wheel drive vehicles. Power is routed through the transmission and sent to the two front wheels.
A lost art. Manual transmission requires the driver to use the clutch pedal and gearshift to manually shift gears based on vehicle speed, etc.
A transfer case is found in four-wheel and all-wheel drive vehicles. The transfer case receives power from the transmission and sends it to the front and rear axles.
Davis Auto provides services to stop problems before they happen, saving you time and money in the long run. Checking for fluid leaks, installing a new pan gasket, replacing transmission fluid and filter, visual inspection
Tips to care for your transmission
Follow these tips to keep your ride in tip-top shape!
Add a friction modifier – Some additives to your fluid increase transmission life.
Auxiliary cooler – At high transmission temperatures seals harden, clutches burn, and fluid breaks down. Auxiliary coolers help reduce excess heat.
Be prompt – Most transmission problems start out small, get worse over time, and get more expensive the longer they’re neglected.
Check fluid level – The fluid in an automatic transmission operates the clutches, provides cooling and lubrication, and drives the vehicle.
Cooler line filter – Automatic transmissions’ filters have varying degrees of effectiveness. Adding an in-line filter will remove damaging particles from the transmission fluid.
Ease up – Reduce transmission wear by reducing the load when shifting gears, by easing up on your speed right before you shift.
Engine tune-up – A good running engine reduces stress on your transmission so it lasts longer.
Service the cooling system – The cooling system cools the engine and the transmission fluid.
Service your transmission regularly – An annual fluid and filter change can extend your transmission’s life.
