Transfer Case & Transmission Coolers

Four-wheel drive vehicles are able to function only with the support of a transfer case. What is a transfer case? The transfer case is responsible for assisting the car to apply the right amount of torque required. Using the vehicle's gears, the transfer case helps the automobile enter into and maintain four-wheel drive. Because transfer cases play an integral role in a four-wheel-drive vehicle's overall performance, we advise customers to maintain a consistent transfer case repair schedule. If you are unsure how frequently to schedule these types of appointments, check your owner's manuals for the automobile manufacturer's recommendations. If you are having any problems with your transfer case, schedule a transmission service appointment to have one of our auto service technicians take a look.

As transmission fluid circulates around your vehicle and allows the transmission to operate safely, it absorbs heat. This is where the transmission cooler comes in. The transmission cooler is responsible for lowering the temperature of transmission fluid in your vehicle. With a lower temperature, the transmission fluid can then flow back into the transmission to absorb more heat and continue the cycle. If you think your transmission fluid is running hot, contact us to schedule a service appointment today.

Transmission Care

Consistent transmission flushes are critical in maintaining the overall health of your vehicle. If your car is experiencing any transmission-related issues, including delays in changing gears, difficulty shifting, or slipping gears, it may be time to schedule an appointment for a transmission flush. If this is the case for you, call us today to have one of our transmission specialists take a look at your vehicle. After our inspection, we will provide you with our recommendations for what type of transmission service or transmission preventative care your vehicle needs.

Transmissions that are under a lot of stress or daily use are more likely to have problems. Additionally, driving factors such as stop-and-go driving, heavy hauling, and towing will place even more pressure on your vehicle's transmission. However, although your transmission will continue to do its job, these variables can eventually cause parts to become worn out, and the transmission may need to be replaced. If your vehicle needs a transmission replacement, our certified technicians can quickly and conveniently inspect your vehicle and provide you with competitive pricing for any transmission services that your vehicle needs.
