The transmission in your vehicle is complex and very important. It is responsible for allowing your car to change gears, which in turn makes a difference in the torque ratio, which is necessary for giving the right amount of power to your vehicle’s wheels. With time your vehicle’s transmission may begin to wear out, leaving you with the option for a transmission rebuild.

IN CAR REPAIR and ADJUSTment

^

The technicians at Albion Auto understand that problems with your vehicle's transmission

These problems can often be resolved with adjustments or a minor repair. In fact, a simple adjustment can be done without even removing the transmission from the vehicle.

These types of repairs can be repaired without having to remove the transmission

Not having to remove the transmission from the vehicle saves you a considerable amount of money when compared to removal or complete overhaul.

When a vacuum modulator is used in lieu of a throttle cable

An adjustment screw can be used to correct a transmission problem. When a vehicle uses a modulator instead of a throttle cable it is crucial that there be no vacuum leaks and the engine is performing at peak efficiency.

^

When a late model transmission is failing to shift correctly

It can often be due to a faulty sensor receiving incorrect signals from the computer. Additionally shifting problems can arise when a transmission is not responding to the computer correctly due to a bad connection or a defective solenoid pack.

In situations where a non computer-controlled transmission is either shifting too early or too late

The throttle cable may need to be adjusted. Seldom will a throttle cable go out of adjustment on its own or because of wear and tear, but rather most misadjustments are a result of other repair work or due to damage from an accident.

The vacuum conditions of an engine are very sensitive

And significantly impact the performance of an engine. Our technicians will quite often use a vacuum gauge when diagnosing a vehicle’s performance problem and state of tune.
