Clutch and Car Transmission Services

Book Online

(Note in selected stores some services may be subcontracted out)

Whether you drive a manual or an automatic transmission car, it's important to keep your car's transmission running smoothly. Automatic transmissions need regular servicing to ensure maximum performance, economy and service life. The automatic transmission is one of the most sophisticated parts of your car. The Tyre Factory transmission servicing packages can include tasks such as draining the transmission fluid, removing and cleaning the oil pan, inspecting fluid condition, full transmission flushes, and checking for leaks.

Manual transmissions also need servicing although this usually includes less complicated tasks, such as replacing the fluids and/or making minor adjustments. Clutch repairs and transmission servicing should always be carried out by a professional. (We may subcontract out specialist repairs and provide an independent warranty).

We have the expertise to diagnose any car transmission issue and offer our customers transmissions repairs in house or through a market leading specialist.

Common transmission issues and warning signs

Some of the signs that there are problems with your clutch and automatic transmission include:

Clutch problems:

  • Clutch slips and does not transfer engine power to the wheels
  • Clutch won't release properly

It's important to note that it's only when the clutch disc is slipping against the flywheel that wearing occurs. So, if you are the type of driver who slips the clutch a lot, you'll wear out your clutch a lot faster.

Automatic transmission problems:

  • Leaking fluid.
  • 'Check Engine' light comes on.
  • Jarring transition into next gear.
  • Car 'hesitates' or 'refuses' to go into gear.
  • A whining, humming or even a slight buzzing sound.

Clutch and automatic transmission components

Clutch Components: A clutch consists of a cover, a clutch plate, a flywheel, a pressure plate, a diaphragm spring and a thrust bearing.

Automatic Transmission Components: Inside an automatic transmission, there is a complex assortment of parts in a fairly small space. Among other things there are a planetary gear set, a set of locking bands, clutches, a hydraulic system, and an oil pump to move transmission fluid around.

What are the differences between manual and automatic transmission?

There are two big differences between an automatic transmission and a manual transmission:

  1. There is no clutch pedal in an automatic transmission car.
  2. There is a gear selector in an automatic transmission car. Once you put the transmission into drive, everything else is automatic.

The key difference between a manual and an automatic transmission is that the manual transmission locks and unlocks different sets of gears to the output shaft to achieve the various gear ratios. In an automatic transmission, the same set of gears produces all the different gear ratios.

Clutch and automatic transmission components repairs

Our store is equipped with high-technology engine management scanning equipment to assess your vehicle transmission systems and identify faults. The system generates codes for Antilock Braking Systems, airbags, transmission and other systems. As cars develop technically, more sophisticated equipment is now required to perform even simple tasks, like resetting service lights, performing a wheel alignment or rotating the wheels.
