Give your transmission the care it deserves! An essential component of your vehicle, the transmission is responsible for transferring power from the engine through the shaft into the wheels thus creating the motion of the vehicle. Within it is a plethora of components – including a planetary gear set, valve body, modulator, brake band, torque converter, and output shaft – that can all cause issues with the function of the transmission if operating at less than optimal capacity. If one of these issues arises, it is imperative for the health of your transmission – and the car’s overall mechanical stability – that you get it fixed quickly and correctly. But fixing it yourself can be exceedingly difficult and it would be easy to make a costly mistake. Hiring a professional transmission repair services from companies like Mr. Transmission, Aamco, and Firestone can ensure the job gets done right. Read on to find out more.
