The thought of transmission repair can send chills down the spine of even the most stout-hearted driver. Transmission repair can be an expensive proposition, but when you visit Coast Nissan for transmission repair and auto maintenance in San Luis Obispo, it doesn’t need to be costly. The certified service technicians at the Coast Nissan Service Department can inspect and repair your car’s transmission. They have the experience and the knowledge to determine whether your vehicle needs a new transmission. They can also perform all other auto maintenance and repair services.
Just like an oil change, transmission service is an important part of your car’s scheduled maintenance. When you bring your vehicle to Coast Nissan for transmission repair and auto maintenance in SLO, the service technicians will flush out the old transmission fluid and replace it with fresh fluid. Other components of transmission maintenance include cleaning or replacing the filter, inspecting the sump pump or pan, cleaning the pan and installing it with a new pan gasket.
The transmission in your car is a gear system that transfers power from the engine to the wheels. The transmission allows the vehicle to maintain a constant speed by shifting gears. This is the same principle used by bicycle riders when they change gears. If the transmission fails, your car may not be drivable. If your car is experiencing transmission problems, contact the Coast Nissan Service Department and make an appointment.
There are three types of transmissions: manual, automatic and continuously variable. A manual transmission must be shifted by the driver using a clutch. The driver uses the shifter to select the gear. An automatic transmission handles the task of shifting the gears for the driver. Most of today’s transmissions are automatic. A continuously variable transmission (CVT) uses belts and pullies to adjust the gear ratios. Since CVTs don’t have a fixed number of gears, they can provide maximum efficiency.
Signs that your car’s transmission may be failing include difficulty shifting, a transmission that slips, and a car that’s stalling or leaking fluid. If the transmission isn’t working properly, the service light may come on. Driving with a faulty transmission can be dangerous, so don’t put off bringing your vehicle in for an inspection. The service technicians at Coast Nissan will determine the cause of the problem. In some cases, your car may need a new filter, or the transmission fluid may need to be changed.
If the transmission is defective, it may need to be replaced. While replacing the transmission can be expensive, some less-costly alternatives are available, including a rebuilt, remanufactured, repaired or used transmission. So, head over to the Coast Nissan Service Center if you believe your car has a transmission problem. We can also provide all other auto maintenance services.
