We believe that preventative maintenance is the best medicine for your car. That is why Honest Accurate Auto Service provides transmission services at both our Tutt Blvd. and Nevada Mesa View locations. This includes maintenance and repair of both automatic and manual transmissions, as well as drive axles and differentials.
After 30,000 miles, due to the combination of time and heat, transmission fluid begins to show its age as it oxidizes and turns brown in color. Deposits begin to form around the transmission’s many moving parts, resulting in valving that sticks and clutch plates that slip, or act sluggish and chatter as they shift. Heat takes its toll on the transmission fluid, causing it to lose its lubrication abilities at high temperatures, which leads to clutch pack, and thus transmission, failure. Be aware that when towing or driving in severe conditions (mountain roads), the transmission’s torque converter is working very hard, causing a major rise in temperature. This kind of driving accelerates fluid breakdown, which can possibly lead to transmission damage.
By changing your fluid regularly, and particularly after severe driving conditions, you will maintain your fluid’s ability to lubricate internal transmission parts. In this way, you may be able to prevent major transmission repair, or keep your transmission in good running order for a longer period of time. You will save money in the long run, by properly servicing your transmission and transmission fluid.
When you do have a transmission problem, Honest Accurate Auto Service has the ability and skill to diagnose the problem, and then replace or perform transmission repairs as needed.
