Transmission Repair and Service

Transmission problems may arise slowly, but if left alone they can progress into a dangerous situation for you, any passengers on board, and everyone else on the road. In the beginning you may take note of your transmission slipping, difficulty putting your car into reverse, hesitation when changing gears, and a delay in acceleration. These warning signs may seem small until they morph into transmission lag which indicates that total failure of the system is on the horizon.

If transmission lag sets in, the car will lurch forward after coming to a complete stop and the driver presses the gas again. The reason this is so dangerous is because the vehicle could lurch forward and hit another car, or it could stall while turning and be hit by oncoming traffic. Don’t take this risk; in fact, don’t even let your car reach this point- come into Garber Chevrolet Saginaw at the first sign of a problem and let us heal your transmission.

Experience the Garber Chevrolet Saginaw Difference

What’s the difference between average repair shop technicians and those of dealership service centers? If you decide to pull into any shop for your transmission problems, you may get underserviced, overcharged, and leave with the same amount of issues you came in with. At our service center in Garber Chevrolet Saginaw, we employ highly-trained ASE-Certified Technicians who give you and your car their undivided attention.

Our technicians’ expertise is backed by years of experience working on countless vehicles since we welcome all makes and models. We don’t let you leave until we offer our free 21-point inspection to make sure no other problems are about to crawl out of the woodwork. Bring your transmission problem to a place where you’ll do better- trust us at Garber Chevrolet Saginaw.

Transmission FAQ’s—

Some common telltale signs include:

  • Hesitation when switching gears
  • A burning smell
  • If there are fluids leaking
  • If gears are slipping
  • A lack of response when shifting into another gear

If you shift your vehicle or attempt to move it forward from a stopped position, signs of a transmission slip include: hesitation to react, revving more than normal, or struggle to move at all. If you are experiencing any of these warning signs, contact a technician at Garber Chevrolet Saginaw as soon as possible to have an inspection completed; if you wait, the cost of future transmission repairs could skyrocket.

Transmission fluid will generally be a variation of red or pink in color. That being said, if you think your transmission fluid may be leaking, we advise driving right to the service center at Garber Chevrolet Saginaw. The vehicle should not be driven any further than bringing it in to be serviced, and you may even want to get it towed; you could potentially get stranded or cause a lot of damage to internal parts of the transmission.

There are a few things you can do, including:

  • Make certain that the transmission always has enough fluid.
  • When you get an oil change, have the technician check your transmission fluid to make sure it is filled, clean, and free of leaks.
  • Have the transmission fluid replaced on schedule.

Garber Chevrolet Saginaw takes pride in repairing all vehicle makes, models, and ages. Whether you purchased your car from us or another dealership, we are happy to help with your vehicle needs. If you have any questions or concerns about the service center at Garber Chevrolet Saginaw, feel free to call us at (989) 264-0425.

Everything you need to know about transmissions—

The gear shift within a vehicle is likely the most commonly known part of the transmission. Park, Reverse, Neutral, Drive, Low (P-R-N-D-L) are the selections that we have all learned how to use as drivers, which are directly connected to the transmission. These gear options are found in an automatic transmission, which is the most common type in the United States.

However, other forms of transmissions are available in passenger cars and trucks, such as a manual transmission. This option allows the driver to do the shifting themselves, rather than the system performing the shifts automatically. A manual transmission is particularly desired by drivers who command an enthusiast persona or are simply wanting to preserve fuel.

Another type is a CVT, or Continuously Variable Transmission, which technically does not have gears at all; rather, it’s like having one magical gear that’s variable across all driving situations. This transmission allows for maximum efficiency or performance, depending on how the CVT is applied to the vehicle’s mechanics. Regardless of the type of transmission your vehicle uses, if you want seamless shifting on every trip you take, look no further than Garber Chevrolet Saginaw for transmission service.
