Your fleet vehicle can run in several gears, allowing it to power itself as needed for various terrains and situations. The primary forces behind your vehicle’s ability to change gears are the transmission and the transfer case.
Your vehicle’s transmission allows it to shift gears smoothly. However, if the valve body is clogged with sludge, it can cause serious damage to the transmission. Using the latest in state-of-the-art technology, we will install a safe and effective cleaner to suspend harmful varnish and sludge from the transmission valve body, torque converter and lines and install new high-tech fluid with conditioners.
Just like your engine, you should have your transmission serviced regularly. When Andrew's Heavy Duty Truck & Equipment Repair services your transmission, we:
- Remove and inspect the pan
- Clean or replace the screen
- Clean the pan
- Reinstall the pan
- Install a new gasket
- Replace old transmission fluid with new, high quality fluid
- Make any additional needed changes and adjustments
By replacing the old transmission fluid, the expert team at Andrew's Heavy Duty Truck & Equipment Repair essentially gives your vehicle’s transmission new life. Additionally, flushing the old fluid gets rid of small bits of clutch material and metal shavings, which can damage your transmission by clogging passages and wedging themselves between moving parts. Getting rid of the old fluid reduces wear within the transmission.
Replacing old fluid with new also provides better lubrication within the transmission, which boosts the holding ability of the transmission’s friction components. Improved lubrication also results in less heat. By decreasing friction and heat, your transmission will work better for a longer amount of time. A simple service can save you the money and time that come with a major transmission repair or replacement.
Transfer Case Service
Your vehicle’s transfer case pulls power from the transmission and transfers it to the front and rear axles via the drive shafts. Sometimes the driver directly controls the transfer case by using a shifter or a switch. Transfer cases allow trucks to maneuver normal roads by synchronizing the difference between the front and rear wheels. If the transfer case is designed for off-road use, it will mechanically lock axles as needed to prevent the vehicle from slipping and to provide better traction. Malfunctioning transfer cases can severely affect the way your vehicle moves, so it is imperative to have it maintained and serviced regularly.
