This is one of the most overlooked parts of your vehicle until it breaks down
At Everything Automotive we specialise in the most modern, computer controlled transmissions right through to early transmissions. We offer fast and reliable service, state of the art equipment and skilled professionals to provide you with the best service at Autobox. Your automatic transmission is a highly technical piece of specialised equipment. Please note that we also service and maintain manual transmissions and clutches. These generally fall into the standard service area and will be checked regularly. If there are any issues with your manual transmission then our experienced mechanics are able to fix them quickly and efficiently for you.
More than 90 percent of failures in automatic transmissions are the result of fluid contamination and overheating
Most people overlook their transmission service & regularly forget to check their transmission oil
The average automatic transmission has around 1000 parts, not including O-rings & seals
Replacement of an automatic transmission system can cost you an arm and a leg.
Automatic transmissions can require up to 15 litres of oil
We not only repair automatic transmission systems when they breakdown but perform maintenance and servicing to ensure safety and longevity of these important components. It is always best to maintain your vehicle and it's systems to avoid catastrophic failure instead of waiting for them to fail. A full automatic transmission service is generally a part of your logbook service schedule at the time the manufacturer recommends. This can be anywhere from 50,000 - 150,000 km's. However, if you have any issues with your transmission then it may be advisable to flush and check it outside of the manufacturer's schedule.
This is the most important aspect of your transmission service as all the oil in the gearbox and torque converter needs to be flushed and replaced. This can be up to 15 litres of oil and generally makes up the bulk of the cost.
Automatic transmission filters rarely need replacing and as such some actually are part of the sump pan. These can be several hundred dollars to replace so we will check the condition and only replace if necessary. Any worn seals will also be replaced
When we have the sump off your transmission we will check it all over to ensure there aren't any build ups of deposits around the clutch packs and check the wear and tear on the system.
This is to ensure that your transmission is shifting gears quickly and in line with the vehicle specifications and settings.
