While we may not rebuild transmissions, we can replace them. Our transmission work comes with a 3 Year / 100,000 Mile Warranty.Except for the engine, the transmission is the most sophisticated part of your vehicle, and the most expensive to repair. When the gears are grinding and the transmission is slipping, you cannot afford to wait. Every day you put off the repairs is one more day of damage, and the results of that neglect could be quite expensive.
At Macon Diesel – Auto & Truck Repair, we know that an ounce of maintenance is worth a pound of repairs, and that is why we offer a full range of services designed to keep your vehicle running its best.
Checking Your Transmission Fluid
The first line of defense against transmission problems is your own vigilance, and that starts with checking your transmission fluid. You should check your transmission fluid every time you check your oil, so make it a regular part of your car care regimen.
To check your transmission fluid, park the car on a level surface, locate the dipstick and pull it out. The transmission fluid should be bright red in color, with no visible metal shavings or other contaminants. If the transmission fluid is black or brown, or if it smells burnt, it is time for a comprehensive diagnosis.
Transmission Flushes for Longer Vehicle Life
You already change your oil, but when was the last time you had your transmission fluid flushed and filled? Over time, the fluid running through your transmission can become contaminated with sludge, dirt and other debris, compromising the delicate components inside.
Flushing the fluid in your transmission is one of the best ways to protect your vehicle, but this service must be done the right way. Many transmission flushes only remove a small percentage of the fluid, and the leftover fluid can actually make a breakdown more likely. At Macon Diesel – Auto & Truck Repair, we do transmission flushes the right way, so you can stay on the road longer and keep your transmission running stronger.
