Utah Transmission Repair FAQs
How soon do I need to come in for a transmission issue?
Generally, once you’re aware of a problem, it will only get worse the longer you wait to bring it in. If you’re leaking fluid, if the gears or slipping, or if you’re having trouble getting the car into gear, you also run the risk of a breakdown on the road or getting stranded somewhere. Don’t take the risk – bring your vehicle in and let us take a look. Chances are, the sooner you get your car in for repair, the smaller your problem (and repair cost) will be.
Can my transmission be repaired, or will I have to replace it?
Our goal is always to repair our customers’ vehicles when possible, and we never recommend any service you don’t need. Transmission replacement in Utah (or anywhere else) can be costly. If we can repair it safely and effectively, we will recommend that course of action. And we will always discuss any needed work with you ahead of time, so you don’t have any unpleasant surprises when the work is done.

What’s the best way to maintain my transmission?
Different makes and models require different types of maintenance. The best way to keep yours in tip-top shape is to visit a local auto repair professional regularly for inspection and maintenance. Ask us for recommendations on how often your car should have preventive maintenance performed and we will help you ensure your car’s ongoing safety and reliability.
Do I have to put transmission fluid in? If so, what kind and how often?
Under ideal circumstances, your transmission retains a hydraulic seal. This means that fluid should not leak or diminish significantly in level. However, depending on the age and type of your vehicle – as well as how you drive and use your vehicle – you may need to check your fluid level and top it off as needed. As far as what type of transmission fluid to use, different vehicles require different types of fluid. Check your owner’s manual or ask us for advice on how to keep your transmission in the best possible condition, year after year.
