What You Need To Know About Transmission Service At William Wells Tire & AutoJan 15th, 2013
Automatic transmissions have gotten more sophisticated in recent years for Starkville car owners. Take the number of gears for starters: The base is four speeds, five is very common. Many manufacturers are using six speeds and several have seven or even eight speeds. As you can imagine, this means more parts in your vehicle's transmission.
Today's transmissions are computer controlled. Some high end transmissions have two or three computers. Our experienced technicians at William Wells Tire & Auto in Starkville receive ongoing training on transmission service and repair.
Columbus, Westpoint and Starkville car owners trust that transmissions are engineered to last. But MS motorists need to understand that they are also engineered to tighter tolerances. If a portion of the transmission is starved for lubrication, it can lead to failure.
This can happen with not enough fluid. And, if the transmission fluid gets dirty or sludgy, small passages in the transmission can get clogged; then the lubricant is blocked and can't get to all the parts to protect them, so they wear out prematurely.
Most newer vehicles in Starkville, Westpoint , and Starkville require special transmission fluids – at William Wells Tire & Auto we can make sure you get the type your manufacturer recommends.
As you can imagine, repairing one of these new transmissions can be quite costly at most Starkville auto repair shops. That's why manufacturers have a schedule for how often Starkville drivers should change the fluid and what type of fluid to use.
