Our El Paso drivers have been experiencing issues with their transmissions and there are a few things that we here at The Auto Clinic feel are important to know so that you are more comfortable and confident if you are, indeed experiencing a transmission problem of any kind. First, if you drive a vehicle manufactured in the past few decades, there’s a good chance your transmission has a variety of sensors attached to it which monitors all kinds of things - fluid pressure, vehicle speed, temperature, air intake at the engine, and so on.  The first thing to check is your Transmission Sensor, which is a much more affordable fix than replacing your transmission!

How Do I Fix My Manual Transmission Problem?

Manual transmissions are generally more reliable than automatic transmissions. They don’t have as many parts, aren’t as complex, and can take a lot more abuse. However, if an issue is allowed to persist, more and more damage to surrounding components on your manual transmission will occur. The Auto Clinic in El Paso, TX can help you take care of your car as soon as you notice a problem.

Once your transmission has been replaced and you’re shifting smoothly once more, you’ll probably want to keep it running smoothly. Here are some tips from The Auto Clinic in El Paso, TX to help keep you reliably on the road.

Keeping Track of Maintenance - Why It’s So Important

mechanic working on car Keeping track of maintenance done on your fleet vehicles and commercial trucks is one of the most important aspects of fleet management. At The Auto Clinic in El Paso, TX, we track maintenance and repairs for a number of reasons. Here’s why:

Let's Get to The Basics of Your Transmission

The hydraulic system in your transmission is responsible for telling the mechanical components what to do, and when to do it. In order to better understand how your transmission works, it’s important to understand the mechanical components of it.

Make that transmission last, it's simple!

Transmission Cut to show you the inside of it

Nothing works if your transmission doesn't work!  Simply put you are going nowhere without it and it is the one thing that both car and truck drivers alike never think twice about until it really acts up or they have no power or simply don't move forward.  Most of us have a newer car or truck with an automatic transmission in it vs. a standard transmission so do not notice that it is slipping gears until the problem is really serious so the question is how do you get the most out of your transmission?  The obvious answer is to take care of your transmission with scheduled service per your owner's manual recommendation but we have put together a simple checklist for our El Paso drivers to help them become "transmission aware" as it were.

Manual Transmissions Do What?
