Taking Care of Your Vehicles Transmission Is Very Important.

When you hear grinding from your car’s gearbox, it is time for a service. Grinding indicates a bigger problem at hand, such as contaminated or leaking fluid. Your local auto mechanic can perform a fluid flush and inspect to ensure there is no excessive or unexpected wear and damage. At Saline Automotive Service, we are thorough with our inspections, making sure your gears are in perfect working order. If there is too much damage, we also offer replacement transmission, which we will install on the spot! If that is not something you want done, we can get to working on rebuilding your transmission. Sometimes this is the best option. When your transmission begins to fail, it is usually a case of one thing happening to cause another and a ripple effect occurs. Rebuilding your transmission takes time, but it can often save you from having to purchase a whole new one and can save you a lot of money. When you need transmission service in Saline and Ann Arbor, MI, call Saline Automotive Service at (734) 429-2886.

Transmission Leak And Repair

When you experience grinding, you may also want to check for any pooling liquids beneath your car. Low fluid means there is not proper lubrication within your gear box. Without proper lubrication, your gears will grind and become unusable. Inspection checks all seals, pans, gaskets and plugs. Sometimes it may even be a simple matter of a loose but not damaged part. Once the culprit is determined, it is repaired or replaced and fluid is replaced within the system. For honest, proper service for your car, Saline Automotive Service is the best in town.

Clutch Replacement

Clutch Replacement

Holding Clutch

The Clutch Is What Helps Shift Gears On a Manual Car.

Manual transmissions use a clutch to change the gears, hence the word “manual.” Sometimes, for high-end competition cars, a ceramic clutch is used to maximize efficiency. If you have a clutch in your car, you will have three pedals by your feet; the furthest one to the left is your clutch. If you drive your car very hard, you may go through clutches a lot faster than the average person, but if you don’t you may not have to replace your clutch more many years. The clutch is what you push in when you are switching gears in your vehicle, much like a regular pedal in automatic vehicles. There are a few signs that you can pay attention to, to see if your clutch is starting to go or is bad. Give us a call at (734) 429-2886 if you start to notice any of these symptoms. 

  • Hard time switching gears
  • Squeaking noise when pushed in
  • Vibrating or sticking when pushed
  • Poor acceleration

Differential Repair

Differential

When You Don’t Take Care Of Your Differential, You Are Putting Yourself In Danger.

The purpose of the differential is to control the speed of individual tires on your car or automobile. The reason that this is important is because, in situations such as when turning, the inside wheel of the turn has less of a trip to make than the one going around the turn. That is the job of the differential to control that. This allows the driving wheels to turn or rotate at a different speed and not make the wheel of your car turn. This is a very important piece of your vehicle and will keep you safe when you are driving and especially, turning. You can ask your service mechanic to check this when they are doing an inspection to be sure that all is working and that you don’t need any kind of repair or replacement or just give us a call at (734) 429-2886.

Flywheel Repair Service

Flywheel

You Can Find a Flywheel In Any Vehicle.

The flywheel in your car is used to store rotational energy. Sometimes when you try to start your car you might hear a grinding sound and that is because the starter gear is malfunctioning and grinding against the flywheel. This piece is located in every single car and is round in shape. It is able to rotate around and around, creating and then storing energy that it uses at a later timer. In a manual vehicle, the flywheel, makes sure that the gears are working correctly when the drivers uses their clutch and stops the car from vibrating. Give us a call at (734) 429-2886 if you suspect that you have a problem with your flywheel.

Transfer Case

If It Starts getting Difficult To Change Your Gears, Check Your Transfer Case.

Transfer Cases are used in four-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive cars and vehicles. The purpose of the transfer case is to receive power from the transmission and then send it to both the front axles and the rear axles. This can be done with gears, but in modern transfer cases there are usually chains instead. This is an important part of your vehicle so you will need to pay attention to the symptoms of a bad transfer case if it should happen. If you start experiencing a harder time changing gears, it may mean that the fluid that is inside of the transfer case is not sealed anymore. Grinding or loud crunching noises may occur and you will hear them below your vehicle. If you begin to see that your vehicle is going in and out of four-wheel drive, this is also a sign that something may be off. Give us a call at (734) 429-2886 and we can take a look at what is going on.

Man Pouring Fluid Into Transmission

Check To See If Your Transmission Fluid Is Bright Red.

Do you think it is time to completely flush the transmission fluid you have in your car? Take a look at what should be bright red fluid and if it is darker than it should be, maybe it is time to get a transmission fluid flush service. You can usually go around 100,000 miles before having to get this done, but there are the occasions that may require it earlier. Just keep an eye on it or mention it to your mechanic and they will let you know if it can wait until a later date to either drain it out or flush it. Like we mentioned above, if the color is at bright red, you are usually good to go. Give us a call at (734) 429-2886 if you ever have any questions about a transmission fluid flush in Saline and Ann Arbor, MI.
