Professional Automatic and Manual Transmission Services
Here at Trinity Sails and Repair in Nome, Alaska, we consider ourselves experts in all areas of a vehicle. One of the most influential pieces in a car’s performance is the transmission. In simplest terms, the transmission is what takes the power generated from the engine and delivers it to the wheels. In turn, it facilitates your vehicle to move forward. Most cars come with either an automatic transmission or a manual transmission; the continuously variable transmission (CVT) is also widely used, but is not as common. The main difference between automatic/CVT and manual is that the latter requires driver input to function. For a manual transmission to operate, it takes a series of precise and calculated movements involving the gear shifter, clutch, brake, and accelerator. Here in our auto repair shop, we have experience working with all transmission types. If you find yourself in need of transmission repair, or if you have any questions, come on out!
Signs of Transmission Problems
When something goes wrong with your transmission, your vehicle will start to exhibit a change in your normal driving dynamics that may warrant transmission repair. A common sign of transmission troubles is your check engine light or transmission light coming on! Either indicates that there is an issue beneath the hood that requires professional care. Both automatic and manual transmissions can start to present additional indicators, such as odd sounds, fluid leaking, hard shifting, and grinding. If you drive an automatic transmission, keep an eye out for vibrations, slippage, or different shift patterns. If you drive a manual transmission, take note of difficulty when shifting, the inability to properly get into gear, or jumping gears. It’s important to be vigilant when it comes to signs of transmission problems. While we are adept and capable at performing minor and major transmission repair jobs, the smaller the problem, the more affordable and quicker the fix! If you start to experience trouble shifting, consult our team today.
Transmission Repair Services
A vehicle transmission is intricately designed and requires the skill and workmanship of a trained professional when it needs repair service. In Nome, Alaska, we’re proud to be your trusted source for expert and reliable transmission repair. We conduct transmission jobs of all kinds, from inspections and fluid exchanges to parts replacements and transmission rebuilds. A transmission rebuild is an involved process that includes removing the transmission, and inspecting, cleaning, and replacing the worn-out pieces with new components. Once it is reassembled, it is placed back into the vehicle. This is often performed as an alternative to a transmission replacement.
