Transmission Work

Today’s transmissions are computer controlled, meaning that even though you may be seeing and feeling the symptoms of transmission failure, there’s a good chance that the cause of the problem isn’t even with your transmission.  Our experienced technicians can usually give you a ‘best case’ vs. ‘worst case’ scenario in regards to the cost of a transmission repair, however for an actual total cost estimate, they have to perform a series of tasks on your vehicle.

What are the signs of a transmission problem?

Knowing the symptoms of a transmission problem, and getting your vehicle into a repair shop can save you hundreds of dollars.  If you experience any of these signs, get your vehicle to Buckey’s Engines and Transmissions as soon as possible for a diagnostic check:

Transmission slippage, where the transmission slips in and out of gear, is a classic sign of trouble.  

Transmission Spinning, where the transmission spins without providing vehicle movement, can happen when the clutch fails to engage the transmission gears with the engine crankshaft.  

Transmission lag – a delay in transmission action – can happen during acceleration from a complete stop.

Seeing a pinkish fluid on your driveway is a sure sign that you need to get your car to Buckey’s Engines and Transissionimmediately. This is a sign that you have a transmission fluid leak, and ignoring it could cost you more later down the road.
