Automatic Transmission & Manual Gearboxes - (02) 9560 9326

The Transmission is the part that moves your car through the gears as it increases and decreases in speed. Transmissions generally come in two types Manual and Automatic.

Repairing or replacing your transmission can be one of the most expensive repairs you may have to make on your vehicle. You wouldn’t take most transmission problems to an average do-it-yourself mechanic they require a specialist and transmission problems generally get worse the longer they are neglected. Taking care of a problem early can save money and significantly reduce the down-time for your vehicle.

Your vehicle uses transmission fluid to cool and lubricate the moving parts. The fluid reduces the amount of potentially damaging heat inside the transmission and helps increase the life of this important system.

At Casella Motor Repairs, we follow your vehicle manufacturer’s recommended service interval to perform a Complete Transmission Fluid Exchange for smooth and efficient operation:

  • Full removal of all old fluid
  • Install new quality grade transmission fluid

Ask a Casella Motors technician when your vehicle’s manufacturer recommends this maintenance.

Automatic Transmission

Many drivers buy an automatic vehicle prefer the ease and simple drive while they multi task like e.g drink coffee, talk on hands free. The automatic also handles better and drives faster when compared to an improperly driven manual that can place undue stress on the engine and drive train.

Manual Gearbox

Cars with manual transmissions (clutch/stick shift) cost less at purchase. Use less fuel, are less expensive to maintain, have better acceleration times, and make better use of the engine’s power. The downside of manuals is that they require more effort to learn, more work to drive and if not driven properly will damage the gears and transmission.

Typical symptoms of transmission problems are:

  • Leaking Fluid: Check under the car for any drips or puddles. Red fluid is typically transmission fluid and may mean that you have a leak. (NOTE: Green may be antifreeze very poisonous to pets and children, and black fluid is usually motor oil.)
  • Check Engine Light: The check engine light tells you that the car’s internal computer detects a problem in one of the operating systems. Get it in to a professional with the proper diagnostic equipment. Better be safe then sorry
  • Grinding and shaking: Grinding and shaking as you increase or decrease speed or shift gears can be a symptom of a serious transmission problem.
  • Makes funny sounds: If your transmission doesn’t make noise its working properly. If you start hearing any noises like whining or humming. Get it checked out. Note that the noises may only happen intermittently at first but will happen more and more frequently over time.
  • Gear gets stuck: When an automatic transmission hesitates or has issues engaging "Park" or "Drive" instead of shifting quickly into gear there's likely an issue with the transmission.
