Transmission gears deliver power from the engine to the drive wheels, shifting automatically to provide the best power and efficiency for your driving speed. A special transmission fluid cools and lubricates the gears. Over time, this fluid degrades, and its lubricant qualities diminish. Changing the fluid at the correct intervals can help prevent premature wear and damage to the transmission.
A manual transmission, also known as a manual gearbox or standard transmission is a type of transmission used in motor vehicle applications. It generally uses a driver-operated clutch, typically operated by a foot pedal for regulating torque transfer from the internal combustion engine to the transmission and a gear shift lever operated by hand. Manual transmissions typically use four to six forward gears and one reverse gear, although automobile manual transmissions have been built with as few as two and as many as eight gears. Manual transmissions are lubricated with gear oil or engine oil in some cars, which must be changed periodically in some cars, although not as frequently as the automatic transmission fluid in a vehicle so equipped.
In automobiles and other wheeled vehicles, the differential allows the outer drive wheel to rotate faster than the inner drive wheel during a turn. Common problems of a failing differential are noise or excessive vibration. During a differential rebuild the inner gears are removed from the housing and carefully inspected. The bad parts are replaced and everything gets a thorough cleaning before being reassembled and reinstalled with new differential fluid.
In automatic automobiles, the torque converter is usually located between the engine’s flex plate and the transmission. In vehicles with an automatic transmission, the torque converter takes the place of the mechanical clutch, allowing the load to be separated from the power source. When being rebuilt, the torque converter is cut open, washed and machined, the bad parts are replaced and it is bonded back together, welded, balanced, and tested for leaks. This service is performed in-house in our state-of-the-art torque converter rebuilding facility.
In automatic transmissions that are not retaining fluid, the unit is removed from the vehicle and disassembled as necessary to perform the reseal service. All external seals are replaced and the transmission is put back in the vehicle and filled with new transmission fluid.
In vehicles with a manual transmission, the transmission is removed and the clutch disc, pressure plate, fly wheel, and other clutch components are examined. Any damaged parts are replaced and the transmission is put back in the vehicle and filled with new transmission fluid.
A transfer case is a part of a four-wheel-drive system found in four-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive vehicles. The transfer case is connected to the transmission and also to the front and rear axles by means of drive shafts. The transfer case receives power from the transmission and distributes it to the front and rear axles. During a rebuild the transfer case is removed from the vehicle and taken apart, the gears and drive chains are then inspected and the bad parts are replaced. The case is then reassembled, put back in the vehicle and new fluid is added.
