Automatic Versus Manual Transmission
Automatic and manual transmissions change gears differently. As the name implies, the driver must manually shift gears themselves. Manual gear shifts are rough and require gear oil as it is more viscous and heat-absorbent. Automatic transmissions learn how to shift gears depending on both road conditions and driver habits. With automatic transmissions, heavy-duty trucks use a more precise transmission fluid. The transmission fluid is typically synthesized for the specific task of transmission gear shifts. It is very effective and efficient with automatic transmissions.
Frequent transmission woes involve fluid leakages, gear struggles, and overheating. The underlying culprit often is subpar lubrication. Proper lubrication is pivotal for thermal management and friction reduction. A deficit in transmission fluid or gear oil creates excessive friction, heightening the danger of gear damage and potential overheating. Ontario Mobile provides Transmission Fluid and Gear Oil replacements. If required, our mechanics are equipped to swap the transmission filter.
Transmission Services and Signs of Failure
When encountering issues with the clutch, you are looking at potential transmission problems down the road. The clutch serves as the middleman, transferring torque from the engine to the transmission.
Symptoms of clutch failure can range from shifting difficulties to a persistent burning smell while driving. Rest assured, our skilled mechanics can pinpoint the issue and provide a quick solution. At Ontario Mobile, we repair or replace the damaged clutch or component and clean all the associated gears and parts to enhance your engine and transmission's longevity.
Transmission Fluid Leakages
Insufficient lubrication can lead to transmission failure and overheating, common signs of fluid leakages. Improper lubrication will overheat gears, causing warping and misaligning gear teeth interactions. It results in slippage and damage, lowering the longevity of your transmission and heavy-duty truck. This lack of lubrication also negatively impacts the transfer case, which relies on smoothly functioning gears to switch between driving modes.
