diagnosing and repairing transmission issues
Clutch and transmission life can differ due to several factors, including driving conditions, and how much weight you haul. Changes in clutch pedal pressure, unusual noises when you depress the clutch, difficulty shifting, temporary loss of acceleration, or slipping are symptoms of a clutch or transmission problem that needs immediate attention.
Correctly diagnosing and repairing transmission issues requires experience and the right tools. For example, sometimes a transmission will leak fluid but have no other drive-ability issues. When this happens, you can often avoid rebuilding the entire transmission by removing it and replacing external seals and selected components. However, in other cases, worn internal parts are damaged, and a rebuild of the unit is required.
Signs that your transmission needs service
Transmission and clutch life can vary depending on things like traffic, haul weight, and towing frequency. We can help diagnose problems before your vehicle becomes dangerous to drive.
Unusual noises when pressing the clutch pedal
If you notice noise from your clutch when you release or press the clutch pedal, chances are your pilot, release, or throw-out bearings are failing and will need to be replaced.
Difficulty shifting gears, or into reverse.
Difficulty shifting is likely caused by the clutch disc not moving away from the spinning flywheel. The culprit is more often than not the hydraulic system that operates the clutch, which could be leaking.
Whether your truck's transmission needs an adjustment, repair, or total rebuild, it's critical to take your truck to a shop that you can trust.
