Our South Heights drivers have been experiencing issues with their transmissions and there are a few things that we here at Zarin Truck & Automotive feel are important to know so that you are more comfortable and confident if you are, indeed experiencing a transmission problem of any kind. First, if you drive a vehicle manufactured in the past few decades, there’s a good chance your transmission has a variety of sensors attached to it which monitors all kinds of things - fluid pressure, vehicle speed, temperature, air intake at the engine, and so on. The first thing to check is your Transmission Sensor, which is a much more affordable fix than replacing your transmission!
There are many parts and systems outside of the car’s transmission that is equally as important as the parts and systems inside the transmission. Without them, the transmission won’t do much.

If you drive something old, there’s a good chance it has fewer gears than you’d like.

These days, there are some simple swap options - here are some things for you to consider.
Nothing works if your transmission doesn't work! Simply put you are going nowhere without it and it is the one thing that both car and truck drivers alike never think twice about until it really acts up or they have no power or simply don't move forward. Most of us have a newer car or truck with an automatic transmission in it vs. a standard transmission so do not notice that it is slipping gears until the problem is really serious so the question is how do you get the most out of your transmission? The obvious answer is to take care of your transmission with scheduled service per your owner's manual recommendation but we have put together a simple checklist for our South Heights drivers to help them become "transmission aware" as it were.
Just because manual transmissions aren’t as common these days as they used to be, there are still many out there, and at Zarin Truck & Automotive in South Heights, PA, our certified technicians know how to keep them running at their best.
