Whats the Difference Between Transmission Repair and Transmission Rebuild
 
What's really different about auto transmissions today is software. They are all controlled by on-board computers instead of the mechanical linkage used in older cars. A specific transmission may be used by several different manufacturers, but they will all have different software. This means that a shift "problem" on one vehicle may be normal on another.

Manual Transmissions

Manual transmissions are less complicated than automatic transmission, but they still require maintenance as the vehicle ages. Here are some of the most common problem areas:

  • Clutch Disc, Flywheel & Pressure Plate - Clutch chatter or slippage may indicate a worn clutch disc or flywheel, damage to the pressure plate assembly, or oil leaking from engine into clutch assembly.
  • Clutch Linkage - Symptoms may include a stiff clutch pedal, slippage or intermittent clutch problems.
  • Throw-Out Bearing - A worn throw-out bearing often causes a whirring or growling sound when the clutch is applied.
  • Transaxle - On front wheel drive vehicles, the transmission and differential are combined into a transaxle. This requires a special lubricant that should be checked at every oil change.
Service technicians at Kirkland Transmission can road test your car and pinpoint the exact problem in your transmission.
 

All Wheel Drives

Todays all wheel drive and on-demand four-wheel drive transmissions are totally computer controlled. These systems measure input from multiple sensors and can be adversely effected by as little as a one inch difference in circumference of a vehicle's tires.

Motor Homes & RVs

Motor homes and RV's often have the same transmissions as the truck frames they are built on. Kirkland Transmission has 30 years of experience working on truck transmissions and knows where the weak links are in each application.

Overdrives

Unlike yesteryear, most overdrives today are built right into the transmissions. One or two extra gears are added to help increase gas mileage at highway driving speeds.
