Transmission Troubles? Why You Need a Transmission Specialist

The transmission is a pivotal component brimming with complex parts, from the front pump and clutch to the planetary gears. Even a truck renowned for its robustness, like the mid-2000s Ford Super Duty with the 6.0L Power Stroke diesel engine, houses a transmission system with myriad components within its casing. Anyone lacking the expertise of a transmission specialist could inadvertently damage such a transmission during reassembly. Furthermore, a transmission specialist possesses the know-how to maintain your vehicle’s transmission to optimize its longevity—assuming, of course, the vehicle isn’t subjected to extreme conditions like burnouts!

The Benefits of Having a Transmission Specialist at RDI Power in Brooksville FL

Having a local transmission specialist means you don’t have to go to the dealership or tow your vehicle to a shop in Tampa or anywhere else. Your vehicle can stay right here in Brooksville, FL, for transmission repairs.

The benefits of having a transmission specialist at RDI Power in Brooksville FL include the following:

  • Accurate Diagnosis: Issues with transmissions can be challenging to diagnose, especially with electronic transmissions, as the symptoms can overlap with engine issues. Our transmission specialist has the tools, equipment, and knowledge to pinpoint transmission problems.
  • Expertise in Transmission Systems: Our transmission specialist at RDI Power in Brooksville FL has in-depth knowledge and training on many types of transmissions. Our tech can rebuild or replace automatic and manual transmissions.
  • Preventative Maintenance: Wet can do preventative maintenance, including transmission fluid flushes and filter changes, to help increase the life of your transmission.
  • Specialized Tools and Equipment: Many transmissions require special tools and diagnostic equipment. Our transmission specialist has everything required to diagnose and repair transmissions properly. Not all shops have the specialized equipment and tools required to rebuild and repair transmissions.
  • Complexity of Modern Transmissions: Today’s transmissions are controlled by computers, which makes them more difficult to diagnose and repair. We keep up with new technology and are able to address issues on complex transmissions.
  • Transmission Rebuilds: If your vehicle’s transmission suffers severe damage, our transmission specialist can rebuild it, which is often more cost-effective than a new transmission.
  • Transmission Replacements: In some cases, depending on the application, people might prefer installing a new transmission instead of rebuilding the existing one. We can install new transmissions if you choose to go that route.
  • Safety: When your vehicle’s transmission is not working properly, it can be a safety concern. If the vehicle stops moving forward or locks up in traffic, it can take those behind you by surprise and potentially lead to a collision.
  • Personalized Service: A transmission specialist focuses on transmissions only. All of our staff at RDI Power offer personalized service – you are not just another number to us.
  • Time and Cost Efficiency: Because a transmission specialist has specific training on transmissions, he or she can complete transmission repairs much quicker than someone without that training, which reduces downtime and, in some cases, labor costs.

Signs of Transmission Problems

Some of the signs you are having transmission problems include:

  • Slipping – the vehicle only moves forward after you’ve had your foot on the accelerator for a few seconds or more. The longer it takes to move, the more severe the problem.
  • Clunking.
  • The vehicle doesn’t go into reverse. Because reverse takes more pressure, if the transmission fluid is low, it won’t reverse but may move forward.
  • There is a burnt or sour smell from the transmission fluid, which should ideally be bright pink. If it’s brown and has a sour smell, you need a transmission flush and may need the clutches replaced.
  • The shifter doesn’t move. In most cases, when this happens, there is a problem with the linkage. However, sometimes the parking pawl won’t release, and you can’t get the transmission out of the park.

You could also have issues with the transmission computer or the electronic control module. Generally, if it’s an electronic problem, the transmission or check engine light will illuminate.
