Transmission Service Can Extend Its Life Expectancy

A little transmission maintenance goes a long way towards avoiding costly repairs. In fact, there is nothing more important than maintaining a vehicle. A well-maintained transmission lasts longer and is worth a lot more when it comes time to sell. It also has much lower repair bills over its lifetime and is much more reliable.

Transmission Repair Is Simply What We Do Best

We are a high-quality transmission rebuild shop that can diagnose, fix and repair, or completely rebuild the transmission and transfer cases on most cars and trucks. This has been the backbone of Levrett for over 40 years.

Frequently Asked Transmission Repair Questions

How Frequently Should My Transmission Fluid Be Changed?2017-09-13T14:50:49-07:00

Typically, transmission fluid should be changed between 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but an external diagnostic check will let you know if it’s necessary or not. Sometimes heat can cause it to break down over time, or it can become contaminated from parts of the transmission. It’s important to change the transmission fluid when recommended since the fluid lubricates the moving parts in your transmission. Without a regular flush and replenishment of transmission fluids, you’re decreasing the life expectancy dramatically as time goes on.

Can Driving Conditions Affect My Transmission?2017-09-13T14:54:40-07:00

When it comes to transmissions, it’s not always just the number of miles that have an impact on its life expectancy. Many, seemingly normal, driving conditions can lower your transmissions efficiency and longevity.

If you are driving your car only a few miles a day, the vehicle doesn’t have a chance to warm up to the proper operation temperature and the transmission shifts through gear ranges more than it should. If you have an older car with a low amount of miles on it, you might want to get your transmission check to make sure there hasn’t been any unnecessary strain on it.

Why Does Transmission Repair Cost so Much?2017-09-13T14:58:26-07:00

The main reason transmission repairs cost a lot is because so much goes into these specific repairs. Transmissions are made up of literally hundreds of parts and during a major repair, each one has to be removed and thoroughly inspected. Once the issue is found, that part can be repaired or replaced. Then all the parts have to be put back together perfectly or risk further complications. Once the parts are put back together the transmission as a whole has to be reinstalled and tested to make sure everything’s running as it should be. So, while it may seem like a lot, the time and expertise spent on this specific repair justify the high costs.

M. LaMarch

Some time ago we read in the paper how you helped the people who were on their way home to Oregon, but their car stalled in California. Because you had worked on their car when they were in Reno, they called you about the trouble, and you made the long trip to assist them. We want you to know how much we admire your actions and we certainly have you down as the person we want to work on our car should the need arise.
