Transmissions

The Transmission in a vehicle is a complex system responsible for transferring power from the engine to the wheels, enabling the car to move and adjust to different speeds.

Transmissions explained

Transmissions are key components in vehicles that manage the distribution of power from the engine to the drive wheels. They come in various types, including manual, automatic, and continuously variable transmissions (CVTs).

The transmission ensures that the right amount of power reaches the wheels to drive at a given speed. It shifts gears automatically or manually, depending on the type, to optimize the engine's performance and fuel efficiency. Proper functioning of the transmission is crucial for a smooth, efficient, and safe driving experience.

At Gateway Auto - Service & Collision Center, our services include comprehensive diagnostics, maintenance, repair, and if necessary, replacement of transmission systems to ensure your vehicle operates reliably.

When or why do you need it?

Transmission Service or Repair is necessary when you experience issues like difficulty in shifting gears, unusual noises during gear shifts, slipping gears, or a delay in vehicle movement after shifting gears. These symptoms can indicate wear or damage within the transmission system.

Regular maintenance, including fluid checks and flushes, can help prevent these issues and extend the life of your transmission.

At Gateway Auto - Service & Collision Center, we recommend prompt attention to any transmission issues and regular service checks to maintain your vehicle’s performance and prevent costly repairs or replacements in the future.
