Crown Transmissions Can Help You Avoid And Fix Transmission Problems
Transmission Problems are annoying and seem to happen at the worst possible times. Transmissions can fail for a variety of reasons. Some problems are preventable, while others are not. Preventative maintenance and addressing any changes in your vehicle’s performance can go a long way in avoiding costly / unnecessary repairs.
The first thing to do when you think you have a transmission issue is not panic. Bring your car in and have us check it out at Crown Transmissions! Our experienced technicians will quickly get to the root of the problem, which may not be as bad as you think.
The Atlanta area is congested and traffic jams are a normal occurrence. Spring is in the air and traffic is even worse during the late afternoon hours. Everyone is trying to rush home, rather than paying attention to the warning signs before its too late. We’re stuck on 285 or, worst, driving 400 going North.
Crown Transmissions feels your pain. This is why we offer free towing for up to thirty-five miles from our shop, as long as you commit to complete necessary repairs at our shop. It not, you’ll simply be charged the towing and diagnostic fee without a problem.
There are several symptoms that can present themselves when you are having problems with your transmission. Because there are a number of components that make up your transmission, the symptoms can vary widely depending on which component is failing.
Here are some items that may indicate a serious problem with your transmission:
(1) The car bangs into gear. When driving, your car should shift smoothly between gears when you accelerate.
(2) The vehicle is slow to shift or feels like it gets hung up between gears.
(3) You suddenly lose the reverse gear in your vehicle.
(4) Your car does not shift at all while accelerating.
How Can Crown Transmissions Fix My Transmission?
Transmission repairs and costs depend on what exactly is causing the problem, the cost of the replacement part, and the labor required to install the part.
Sometimes, transmission trouble is simply the result of a failing sensor. Today’s vehicles are highly dependent on electrical sensors and computers.
Other transmission problems can be attributed to low transmission fluid levels or dirty transmission fluid. In some cases, the only solution is to replace the transmission with a new unit or have your existing unit rebuilt.
At Crown Transmissions, we can diagnose your transmission problems and give you a fair and honest estimate for necessary repairs.
How Can I Prevent Transmission Problems?
Unfortunately, you can’t prevent all transmission problems. However, there are steps you can take to minimize the overall risk of developing common failures.
We strongly recommend that you perform regular service on your vehicle. Each vehicle has recommended guidelines that should be followed, detailed what services should be performed and how often they are needed.
A transmission service is no different than an oil change for your engine. The only difference is, in this case, the transmission is your focus.
