Transmission

There are thousands of part that make up a vehicle. None are more important than your vehicle’s transmission. For many people, the conversation that exists around a transmission failure is “Do we keep the vehicle or do we scrap it?”

The transmission, or gearbox, changes the gear ratios of a vehicle as it moves. It allows the internal combustion engine, best utilized to run a high rotational speeds, to provide a range of speed and torque outputs necessary for travel.

The best way to minimize expensive transmission repairs is to be able to detect problems very early on.
