Transmission Repair Specialists

We at Apex Auto Group are transmission repair specialists.

Automatic transmissions are an important component in any modern vehicle, they go unnoticed until there is a problem, at which point you appreciate the complexity.

Transmissions are vital to a car, without them you cannot move forwards or backwards. Transmission send power from the engine to the wheels, control the speed and change gears.

An automatic transmission contains mechanical systems, hydraulic systems, electrical systems and computer controls.  If they break they are expensive to fix, if well maintained they have a long life span. We recommend Servicing your Transmission every 20,000kms, annually or as per the manufacturer’s specification.

There are numerous warning signs that you should look out for to ensure you catch any transmission problem before it escalates. If you recognise any of the issues below, contact us immediately.

Excessive gear noise – this may indicate that there are low fluid levels or that the fluid has been contaminated.

Gears slipping – if you notice that the gears are not staying in position or won’t engage then call us immediately.

If there is a smell from the transmission fluid this may indicate that the fluid has been burnt, if a fluid and filter change does not take place immediately you run the risk of having to do a complete transmission over haul.

Prolong Your Transmission

The secret to keeping your transmission healthy is to keep the transmission fluid and filters in great condition.

A regular change to your transmission fluid could save you $$, we look at the colour of the fluid which can tell us a lot of information about the state of its health, a red tranmission fluid generally means that the fluid is still able to do its job in lubricating all the moving parts within your transmission.

If the transmission fluid is a little watery or burnt then it needs to be changed by a transmission specialist as quickly as possible.

At the same time the filters will be changed to ensure the life of your transmission is prolonged.

If your transmission fluid quality does deteriorate the moving parts within your transmsission will rub and degrade quickly.

A few signs that your transmission may require a change are if you feel any difference in gear changes, strange smells or noises. Book a car service today to potentially save yourself a lot of money!
