TRANSMISSION REBUILDING

Transmission rebuilders, in particular those working in automatic transmissions, rank among the most specialized people in automotive and commercial vehicles’ repair and maintenance. Many spend a lifetime honing their craft. But more often than not, once they have reached near perfection, they have to start all over again.

TRANSMISSION REPLACEMENTS

There is no engine component more complex and essential than a car’s transmission. Transmissions are responsible for shifting gears (automatically or manually) to dynamically change the speed-torque ratio in order to deliver power to the wheels in an efficient manner based on the speed of the vehicle.

The reason for this is that engines output a high rotational speed which cannot be used for low speeds or starting. Using gear ratios, a transmission reduces the rotational speed and increases the torque (or “power” to the wheels) in the process.

LEAKING TRANSMISSION

Transmission fluid is the lifeblood of every automobile. Not only does is remove heat from the internal components of your transmission, but it also actuates gear changes through hydraulic pressure.

So, if your transmission starts to leak, you’re probably looking at the start of what could become a very expensive problem.

TRANSFER CASES

You may not know much about transfer cases, but if you have a 4-wheel drive vehicle, you've got one. It makes sure you have power available for both the front and rear axles. For example, if you have a rear-wheel drive SUV, power goes to the rear wheels until you need 4-wheel drive. That's when the transfer case steps in and transfers some of the power to the front wheels as well. You might use a shift lever to go into 4-wheel drive, or it could be a button on the dash or it might even go into 4-wheel drive automatically, depending on your vehicle.

The transfer case is serviced by periodically draining its fluid and replacing it with fresh fluid. We also check for leaks and damage. Transfer case fluid cools and lubricates the gears, chains, bearings, shafts and other parts. Over time, the additives in the fluid wear out and it doesn't protect as well. Also, bits of metal and clutch material wear off and contaminate the fluid. Look, there isn't a filter in the transfer case, so if the contamination is allowed to stay for too long, it'll further accelerate wear.

TRANSMISSION FLUSH

TRANSMISSION FLUSH

The importance of a transmission flush often goes unnoticed until serious problems arise. It is a process that is important to the health and maintenance of your car, and if done properly, is an excellent preventative maintenance procedure. Check your owner’s manual for the proper maintenance schedule. However, if you feel there are certain problems with your vehicle such as odd noises or gear shifting issues, it might do more harm than good.

TRANSMISSION SERVICE

Unless you've got a lemon, most vehicles can continue to run past 100,000 miles if they are well maintained. That means changing the oil at recommended intervals and making sure your transmission remains in good condition. Besides replacing an engine, transmission repairs are the most expensive fix for a car, and for older vehicles a transmission repair can cost nearly as much as the vehicle.

SHIFT KITS

SHIFT KITS

Today’s customers demand a transmission which shifts smoothly, is durable, and delivers excellent fuel economy all at the same time. To accomplish these benefits, we would install what is known as an automatic transmission shift kit, which is probably one of the most misunderstood upgrades in the automotive world.

Many people know the words, but not many fully understand what a shift kit truly does or why it’s desired. In short, an automatic transmission shift kit modifies the transmission’s shift timing in order to dramatically increase shift firmness and durability of the transmission components.

FACTORY UPDATES

Every car will break down sooner or later and this is not an exciting encounter when you have to call your mechanic unexpectedly to see if they will squeeze an appointment for you. The situation could be made even worse by the expensive repair bills that it comes with. This is where free factory car service manuals come in handy for instructing and guiding you on how to repair and maintain your own automobile.

Differential Repair & Overhaul

You have a heavy-duty truck or SUV for a reason – it works hard and has to be reliable. You keep close tabs on the engine and transmission, changing the fluid regularly to make sure they don’t break down. But have you paid any attention to your rear differential? If you haven’t given it any thought, it’s probably due for a rear differential service. And if you have rear differential noise, it’s probably too late and a rear differential repair is in your future.

CV Joints

CV joints (constant velocity joints) are flexible joints that evenly transfer power from a vehicle’s transaxle or differential to the CV axle half shafts and onto the wheels. There are several intricate parts that make a CV joint work, but the two most important parts – and the parts most likely to need service – are the cage and bearings that give the joint its fluid flexibility, and the CV boot that protects the bearings.

U-Joints

In rear wheel-drive cars, a driveshaft is needed for the tires to rotate. The driveshaft transfers the power from transmission to the rear tires, enabling them to turn.

U-joints hold the drive shaft in place. If the U-joints are not lubricated, the bearings inside the U-joints will wear out over time and the drive shaft will begin to vibrate, while the car is moving. You will feel vibration in the seat or throughout the car. You may also hearing clunking or banging noise when you put the car in a gear.

Bearings

A wheel bearing is a set of steel balls held together by a metal ring called a race. They help wheels spin fast with as little friction as possible. They are used on all kinds of vehicles, from bicycles to aircraft and cars. On a car, a wheel bearing rides on a metal axle shaft and fits tightly inside the hub, which is a hollow chunk of metal at the center of the wheel. The hub holds the lug bolts that you use to bolt the tire onto the wheel. The wheel bearing is pressed into the hub from the back.

Clutch Replacement

The clutch is one of the most vital parts of your car. When it finally stops working properly, though, it makes the car difficult or impossible to drive! If you want to know how the clutch works, what makes it so important and how you can adjust it yourself, simply read on.

The clutch’s job is linking your car’s engine to its transmission. Since your engine is always running, even when your wheels aren’t turning, your clutch has to be able to both link and separate. While automatic transmissions have much more clutches, they still have the same basic parts doing the same basic job.

Hydraulic Clutches

If your car transmission has a hydraulic clutch, chances are you’re wondering exactly how it works within your shifting system. Most clutches, especially on older vehicles, work by means of a cog system that changes the gears as you shift. With an automatic transmission, you don’t actually shift at all – the car does it for you.

Transfer Case Repair & Rebuilding

At Rasanjana Motors, we know transfer cases are an essential part of your all-wheel and 4-wheel drive vehicle. It is important that it is periodically serviced by exchanging the old fluid with the proper fresh fluid and checking it thoroughly for leaks and damage.

This important fluid cools and lubricates the gears, chains, bearings, shafts and other essential parts inside your transfer case and over time, the additives in the fluid wear out and won't protect the parts as it should. Small metal and clutch material wears off and contaminates the fluid as well. Snowy, off road and wet environments can really shorten maintenance intervals, so check with your Rasanjana Motors professional for advice.

Power Take Off (PTO)

Power take-off (PTO) is a device that transfers an engine’s mechanical power to another piece of equipment. A PTO allows the hosting energy source to transmit power to additional equipment that does not have its own engine or motor. For example, a PTO helps to run a jackhammer using a tractor engine. PTOs are commonly used in farming equipment, trucks and commercial vehicles.

Several types of hydraulic, pneumatic and mechanical PTO applications include agriculture equipment like wood chippers, harvesters, hay balers to commercial vehicle tools like carpet-cleaning vacuums, water pumps and mechanical arms.

NC State Inspection

Annual emissions testing determines whether your vehicle’s pollution control systems are working as designed. Vehicle owners must pass both an Emissions Inspection and a Safety Inspection. This is performed using the vehicle’s On-Board Diagnostics and is usually completed in conjunction with the annual safety inspection. If your car successfully passes the NC car inspection but fails emissions, then you may be eligible for a waiver if you meet the requirements listed here.

HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR TRANSMISSION

1

Check the Fluid Level

The fluid in an automatic transmission operates the clutches, provides cooling and lubrication, and even drives the vehicle. So few things are more important than proper fluid operating level for keeping the transmission working.

Most automatic transmissions have a great dipstick for checking the fluid level. If you're not sure where yours is or how to check the transmission fluid level, refer to your owners manual or come see us at Quality Transmission & Auto Repair, Inc.

2

Check Transmission Problems Promptly

Most transmission problems start out small. They get worse over time. Very often, you can eliminate major repairs simply by taking care of the problem early on.

Whether it's a warning light on the dash, a few drops of fluid on the garage floor, or a change in the way the transmission operates, your best bet is to take your car in for service right away. In many cases you'll be able to avoid a major repair simply by catching it while it's still a minor one.

3

Service Your Transmission Regularly

Transmission fluids have a number of unique properties that can wear out over time. And when they wear out, you can bet the transmission itself won't be far behind.

One of the best ways to keep your transmission in good working order is to have it serviced annually. A complete fluid and filter change every year can add years to your transmission's life, and in the end, save you money.

4

Add a Friction Modifier to the Fluid

New fluid can really help your transmission last longer. But there are a number of additives on the market that have demonstrated the ability to increase transmission life and reliability significantly, even beyond the extra miles you could expect from regular service.

In most cases, you won't be able to find worthwhile additives in your supermarket or do-it-yourself parts store: The really effective additives are only available to the professional transmission centers.

5

Install an Auxillary Cooler

The #1 reason for transmission failure is heat. Transmission temperatures can quickly exceed 300? F. At that temperature, seals begin to harden, clutches begin to burn, and the fluid itself breaks down.

To help eliminate excess heat from the automatic transmission fluid, have an auxillary cooler installed. This is particularly important on vehicles that tow trailers, carry heavy loads, or travel over rough or mountainous terrain.

Install a Cooler Line Filter

The #1 reason for transmission failure is heat. Transmission temperatures can quickly exceed 300? F. At that temperature, seals begin to harden, clutches begin to burn, and the fluid itself breaks down.

To help eliminate excess heat from the automatic transmission fluid, have an auxillary cooler installed. This is particularly important on vehicles that tow trailers, carry heavy loads, or travel over rough or mountainous terrain.

7

Service the Cooling System

You may not realize it, but your car's cooling system does more than keep the engine running cool: It also cools the transmission fluid, through a heat exchanger built into the radiator tank.

So a faulty cooling system cannot only damage your engine; it can reduce transmission life as well. In fact, transmission damage may occur long before the engine overheats. To avoid both engine and transmission problems, keep your car's cooling system clean and in tip-top condition.

8

Tune the Engine

The engines and transmissions in today's cars are linked far more closely than in the past. A problem with engine performance can put much more strain on the transmission than one that's running properly.

That's another reason why it's important to keep your car's engine in good running order. A good running engine reduces the stress on your transmission so the transmission can last longer without requiring major repairs.
