What You Need To Know About Transmission Service At Yeck's Tire & AutoJul 30th, 2018
Automatic transmissions have gotten more sophisticated in recent years for Bellevue car owners. Take the number of gears for starters: The base is four speeds, five is very common. Many manufacturers are using six speeds and several have seven or even eight speeds. As you can imagine, this means more parts in your vehicle's transmission.
Today's transmissions are computer controlled. Some high end transmissions have two or three computers. Our experienced technicians at Yeck's Tire & Auto in Bellevue receive ongoing training on transmission service and repair.
Bellevue, Papillion and Omaha car owners trust that transmissions are engineered to last. But NE motorists need to understand that they are also engineered to tighter tolerances. If a portion of the transmission is starved for lubrication, it can lead to failure.
This can happen with not enough fluid. And, if the transmission fluid gets dirty or sludgy, small passages in the transmission can get clogged; then the lubricant is blocked and can't get to all the parts to protect them, so they wear out prematurely.
Most newer vehicles in Bellevue, Papillion, and Omaha require special transmission fluids – at Yeck's Tire & Auto we can make sure you get the type your manufacturer recommends.
As you can imagine, repairing one of these new transmissions can be quite costly at most Omaha auto repair shops. That's why manufacturers have a schedule for how often Bellevue drivers should change the fluid and what type of fluid to use.
