Transmission Services

There are many warning signs of a failing transmission, most of which can be mistaken for something else. The most common symptoms are when the vehicle won't shift into gear, is missing/slipping a gear, or having slack in the clutch of a manual transmission. Other not so obvious indications can be burning smells, a shaky vehicle, odd noises, or even a check engine light coming on. Regardless of the reason behind a deteriorating transmission, it is always a good idea to have it inspected before further damage is done. Our skilled team is knowledgeable and fully prepared to complete your automatic transmission maintenance, clutch adjustment and inspection, clutch replacement, or manual transmission maintenance. Although timely response to problems can extend the life of your transmission, there are times when a full replacement is the only option. In this case our trained technicians can install the best aftermarket transmission based on the vehicle and driving needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I check my transmission fluid?

Checking your transmission fluid involves parking your vehicle on a level surface, applying the parking brake, and then running the engine. With the engine running, you can pull out the transmission fluid dipstick, wipe it clean, reinsert it, then pull it out again to check the level. It’s essential to note that the process may vary based on your vehicle’s make and model, and some newer vehicles do not have a dipstick. If you’re unsure, we at Grease Pro would be happy to help you check it.

What color should my transmission fluid be?

Healthy transmission fluid generally has a bright, clear red color and a slightly sweet smell. If it’s brown or black or has a burnt smell, it’s likely time for a fluid change. If you’re unsure about the condition of your transmission fluid, Grease Pro is here to assist you.

How much would a new transmission cost?

The cost of a new transmission varies widely, depending on the make and model of your vehicle, the type of transmission, and whether you’re considering a new or rebuilt transmission. For the most accurate estimate, we recommend contacting our service team.

How much transmission fluid do I need for my car?

The amount of transmission fluid your car needs will depend on the vehicle’s make, model, and transmission type. It typically ranges from 6 to 10 quarts. For the most accurate information, please refer to your vehicle’s owner manual or reach out to us at Grease Pro.

How often should I change my transmission fluid?

Generally, it’s a good idea to change your transmission fluid every 30,000 to 60,000 miles. However, this can vary based on your vehicle’s make and model, and your driving conditions. Please consult your vehicle’s owner manual for the manufacturer’s recommendation.

What could cause my transmission fluid to leak?

Transmission fluid leaks can be caused by several issues, including worn-out seals or gaskets, a damaged fluid line, or a corroded transmission oil pan. If you notice a leak or find a bright red liquid under your vehicle, bring your car to Grease Pro for an inspection.

How can I tell if my transmission is going bad?

Symptoms of a failing transmission may include difficulty shifting gears, unexplained noises, a burning smell, or the check engine light coming on. If you’re experiencing any of these signs, we recommend bringing your vehicle to Grease Pro for a diagnostic test.

How long does it take to replace a transmission?

The time it takes to replace a transmission can vary greatly depending on the type of transmission and the vehicle. Generally, it could take anywhere from a few hours to a few days. For a more accurate estimate, please contact our team at Grease Pro.

How much does a transmission weigh?

The weight of a transmission depends on the make and model of the vehicle and the type of transmission. A transmission can weigh anywhere from about 100 to 400 pounds.

What exactly is a transmission flush?

A transmission flush is a maintenance process where all of the oil in a transmission is removed, new oil (and sometimes cleaning solutions) is run through it to help remove grime and sludge, and then it is filled up with new oil. It’s a way to help extend the life of your transmission and improve its performance. If you’re interested in this service, our team at Grease Pro would be happy to assist.
