Transmission Maintenance

Your transmission is one of the most important parts of your vehicle. It is made up of hundreds of complex components that enable your vehicle to move. The transmission fluid is the life blood of the transmission, it serves a multitude of purposes. It cools, lubricates, transmits force, transmits pressure, inhibits varnish build-up and protects the transmission. Regular maintenance helps keep the transmission fluid clean and the transmission running smoothly.

Old and dirty transmission fluid will only lead to the need for an entirely new transmission. Regular transmission maintenance services will help to prevent transmission failures and keep your transmission in Road Ready condition, saving you from headaches, and major expenses further down the road.

Our transmission maintenance services include replacement of transmission fluid, replacement of transmission filter (where applicable), replace pan gasket and perform lift inspection.

Clutch Replacement

Manual transmissions are usually more reliable than an automatic transmission. They can often last for 100,000 miles or more the clutch, however, doesn't usually last that long. After all, it takes a lot of wear and tear. Every single time you shift, the clutch has to be disengaged and then re-engaged. If you drive in an area where there is a lot of traffic, you are especially putting a lot of stress on the clutch, putting it through hundreds of cycles of engaging and disengaging over and over again, just in that one driving session. The wear adds up day after day, month after month, year after year. Eventually the clutch will start to slip, make noise, and then wear out.

You can prolong the inevitable, however, by having The Transmission Shop provide manual transmission service and replace the gear oil. This will allow you to add some extra time onto the life of your clutch and avoid it from wearing out prematurely. But when the unavoidable finally does happen, and your clutch reaches its end, Affordable Transmissions will replace the clutch, pressure plate, and throw out bearing. We will also will resurface the flywheel. Affordable Transmissions is your source for all types of transmission repair and transmission service, including the replacement of your clutch.

If you experience any of these warning signs, it would be a good idea to bring your vehicle to Affordable Transmissions in Charlotte where we will thoroughly inspect and diagnose the problem. Only trust your car to the experts!

  • The indicator on the tachometer moves erratically up and down.
  •  Engine reacts by jerking abnormally when you up shift or down shift.
  • Revving excessively or irregularly when you engage the stick shift
  • a smell similar to rubber burning. The smell may appear to emanate from the passenger compartment of the car. But if you park the vehicle and exit it, you may well also smell it from outside of the car. The source of the pungent smell is friction from the worn clutch contacting the flywheel in an improper manner.
