Katy Auto Transmission Repair
Whether you like the speed and flexibility of a manual or the ease and feel of an automatic transmission, having an auto shop that can properly provide maintenance fluid and filter changes, diagnose transmission problems, and back up repairs with a comprehensive warranty is important to reduce the risk of costly maintenance expenses.
Dillon’s Automotive uses state-of-the-art computers, scanners, and equipment to monitor internal and external electrical components to diagnosis most transmission problems. Our team is ASE trained and certified to repair anything from common seal leaks and fluid and filter changes to rare transmission complications and entire transmission replacements.
Your vehicle transmission’s primary job is to allow the engine to operate in its narrow range of speeds while providing a wide range of output speeds. Straining of your vehicle’s transmission can contribute to a deterioration of parts. The transmission uses gears to make more effective use of the engine’s torque and to keep the engine operating at an appropriate speed.
If you tow anything heavy or over a long distance, internal fluid temperatures can increase which will shorten the life of the transmission and cause inner bearing or clutch failures. When towing or hauling heavy objects, your vehicle can get hot enough to burn up the transmission fluid. In order to prevent more costly transmission repair, drivers who tow should buy vehicles equipped with transmission coolers. Whether you tow or not, Dillon’s Automotive recommends performing a transmission flush every 30,000 – 45,000 miles to prevent any problems, otherwise you risk increasing the odds of needing future repairs.
Dillon’s Automotive proudly stands behind all of our work, which is why we offer our standard 2-year or 24,000 mile warranty. Additionally, we offer a 3-year or 100,000 mile warranty on most transmission repairs or replacements.
Some transmission repairs require only a simple transmission flush, which can greatly improve the lifespan and functionality of your vehicle. Addressing your transmission repairs early on may reduce costly expenses, which is why Dillon’s Automotive recommends that you contact us today to discuss your transmission repair needs.
