The Role of the Transmission

A car's transmission facilitates how much power is supplied to the car at any given moment. It works in a similar fashion as a bicycle gear shifter. By changing gears depending on the speed of the vehicle, the transmission ensures that the car is functioning at an optimal level. If you don’t schedule transmission services regularly, you can diminish your vehicle’s fuel economy and run the risk of a premature failure.

Servicing Automatic, Manual & CVT Transmissions

Vehicles are equipped with several types of transmissions, including automatic, manual, and CVT. Automatic is the most popular, as it gives drivers the convenience of not having to manually shift between gears. Manual transmissions are usually better on gas mileage, however, drivers are required to shift from gear to gear. CVTs, or continuously variable transmissions, use pulleys to alternate between "gears" to improve fuel economy. At American Pride Automotive, our technicians have years of experience in repairing and servicing every type of transmission.

You may need to schedule a transmission service if you notice any of the following signs:

  • You detect transmission fluid leaks
  • There's a burning scent coming from the transmission
  • The unit makes odd sounds when the car is on
  • As your car changes gears, there is a noticeable delay or jump
