transmissions

When it comes to your vehicle, the transmission is a key component that helps to ensure a smooth ride and efficient operation. If your transmission is in trouble, your vehicle will start to exhibit some pretty abnormal behavior, and you’ll notice a decline in the quality of your ride. Listen closely for loud grinding sounds, slipping gears, hard shifting, and other unusual symptoms. The pros at Legendary Auto in Cumming, GA can help address all of your transmission system needs. Our goal is to ensure that your vehicle is running smoothly, safely, and to its optimum potential.

As you drive, the transmission system generates quite a lot of heat. The transmission fluid helps to keep the system from getting too hot and eventually overheating. However, as the transmission fluid is used over time, it starts to become less efficient which can leave this system more vulnerable to damage from heat. To correct this problem, you should ask about our transmission fluid flush service. We will remove the old fluid, completely flush the system, and then we will add brand-new, high-quality transmission fluid. This simple process is one of the best ways you can protect your car’s transmission system.

Whether you drive a stick shift or an automatic, your transmission should be inspected every so often to make sure that everything is in good condition. The year, make, and model of your vehicle can determine the cost of transmission repair as well as the extent of any damaged parts. For most vehicles, the transmission should last around 100,000 miles with regular service. Follow a good maintenance plant that will extend the life of your transmission and vastly improve your vehicle’s ride. Whenever possible, get a fluid exchange every 50,000 miles for the best results.

Practicing good driving habits can also help to ensure that your transmission remains in good shape. First, try not to shift when your car is moving or you could hear a grinding noise. Avoid riding the brakes and instead, try to slow down until you can come to a complete stop. If you constantly press down on your brake pedal, it can cause stress on your transmission. Allow your engine to warm up before you drive it so the transmission fluid can get warm enough to properly lubricate all the moving parts. And, if you’re worried about your transmission, bring your vehicle to Legendary Auto so we can troubleshoot the issue and get it fixed.
