Our breadth of knowledge also includes transmission repairs and service. Your Subaru’s transmission isn’t just one of the most complex components attached to your vehicle – it also has the potential of being the most expensive component to replace. Therefore, it’s especially important to keep it in the best shape possible for added longevity.
The average transmission features a variety of gears, clutches and sensors, all put together in a complex arrangement to deliver power from the famous boxer engine to the wheels. Subaru transmissions don’t just include the conventional automatic and manual gearboxes – there’s also the continuously variable transmission that’s available on a number of Subaru models. This particular transmission uses a set of pulleys to create an infinite number of gear ratios, allowing the car to stay within its peak power band with improved efficiency.
The inside of a transmission is a harsh environment that sees its fair share of abuse on a daily basis, which is why having the proper amount of the correct clean transmission fluid is so important. Not only does it provide lubrication for the gears and bands within, it also provides heat-transferring capabilities. The sheer heat generated by the transmission causes the fluid to break down over time and lose both its lubricating and heat-transferring properties. Heat is the most common reason for premature transmission failure.
Scott’s Fort Collins Auto can help if your transmission’s making grinding noises, overheating or if you’re having trouble shifting into and staying in gear. Of course, prevention is always worth a pound of cure. If your transmission fluid is past your Subaru’s recommended service interval or if it looks dirty, it’s time to have it flushed and replaced with new fluid. Dirty transmission fluid is no good in any car – it needs to be replaced as soon as possible.
Age and lack of maintenance can easily do a number on almost any transmission. You can save yourself thousands of dollars and a lot of grief by having your transmission problems taken care of as soon as possible. Our services range from simple transmission fluid flushes to major transmission repair and service. When you bring your Subaru to our shop, you can rest knowing it’ll receive the best possible care.
