Manual Transmission Services

A manual transmission gives you direct control over an engine's RPMs, which means you have horsepower when you want it and in some cases, better fuel economy. At J&M Transmissions, we will service your manual transmission, giving your vehicle the durability, performance and fuel economy you desire. transmission repair lehi, provo utah There's a major difference in between an automatic and a manual transmission. This is the component that separates the transmission from the engine. In an automatic transmission, a torque converter automatically shifts without any input from the driver. In a manual transmission, the driver has a clutch pedal that allows them to control when the engine separates from the transmission. At this point, they can manually select which gear to shift to. To simplify it, the manual transmission makes the driver shift from gear to gear. The automatic transmission makes the vehicle shift the gears on its own. Vehicles with manual transmissions are generally less expensive to fix than those with automatic transmissions. The reason for this is the difference in complexity. More often than not, manual vehicles are less complicated than automatics, and less things get damaged on a regular basis. In a stick shift, the most frequent repair is the clutch, and in ideal conditions, that doesn't need to be repaired before it's seen around 100,000 miles. Manuals also use engine or gear oil, as compared to a faster deteriorating automatic transmission fluid, or ATF. When it comes to servicing or repairing a manual transmission, many common problems can be fixed by simply checking the transmission fluid. If your vehicle is refusing to go into gear or is noisy in neutral, then check your fluid levels and their type. If their levels are low, check for leaks. If there's a leak, then bring your car in to get it fixed. If there is no leak, then fill it back up to the correct levels. Also make sure that the fluid in question is the correct type. Wrong fluids can damage your vehicle more than help it. When you bring your vehicle in for repairs or checkups, our mechanics and technicians will find and fix the problem in your manual transmission. With there being less vehicles with manual transmissions manufactured, it's important for there to be mechanics and technicians who know how to handle these manual transmissions correctly. Fortunately, our teams at J&M Transmission have the necessary knowledge and skills to effectively fix any problems your manual transmission may have, all at a low cost.
