Learn More About Your Hyundai Transmission And Clutch Service

Whether you enjoy the shifting power that comes with a manual transmission or you'd rather have the ease of an automatic transmission, you'll still want to take care of your car's transmission to ensure that it has a long-lasting life. The transmission adjusts the gear ratio between the drive wheels and engine, depending on whether you're slowing down or speeding up. This allows you to have a smooth drive throughout Fall River, New Bedford, or beyond and gives you the power that your Hyundai car or SUV requires.

Take Care Of Your Transmission With These Four Common Transmission Services

To keep your transmission running strong, you'll want to have it routinely maintained and serviced. Here is a closer look at the most common transmission services available.

1) Automatic Transmission Fluid Exchange

Also known as a transmission fluid flush, this service replaces the old transmission fluid with fresh and clean fluid. Every transmission includes fluid that lubricates the gears and parts within. Over time, this fluid will break down due to the heat and friction it encounters throughout your daily Warwick RI or Pawtucket RI drive. If the fluid isn't changed when needed, it could result in a larger transmission repair. Automatic transmission service is recommended every 60,000 to 100,000 miles.

How does an automatic transmission fluid exchange work? First, the plug is removed and inspected. Then, the fluid is drained completely and replaced. Finally, the plus is reinserted.

2) Automatic Transmission Filter And Fluid Replacement

Every transmission also includes a filter that works to clean the fluid from any debris or dirt. With use, this filter can become dirty and won't do its job if left unchanged.

How does an automatic transmission filter and fluid replacement work? First, the transmission pan is removed, and the dirty filter is replaced with a new one. Then, the gasket material is removed and replaced, and the transmission pan is reinstalled. Then, a normal fluid replacement is performed.

3) Manual Transmission Service

If you've ever driven a manual car, then you know how important the clutch is. Transmission service for a manual vehicle not only requires a routine fluid flush, but also needs to have the clutch inspected and repaired if needed. Manual transmission service is recommended every 30,000 to 60,000 miles.

4) Complete Transmission Service

Whether you have an automatic or manual transmission, you can have a complete transmission service performed. This comprehensive service goes over every part of your transmission and includes:

  • Transmission fluid replacement
  • Transmission filter replacement
  • Transmission sump and pan inspection
  • Transmission pan cleaning and material replacement (if needed)
  • Clutch inspection (if applicable)
  • Inspection for friction damage or metal particles

When Should I Replace The Clutch?

Your car's clutch is equally as important as the gas pedal or brake, and if it's not working properly, then your vehicle won't run as it should. Some warning signs that your clutch needs to be repaired or replaced include:

  • Harder acceleration
  • Sticky or spongy clutch pedal
  • Odd noises when you shift
  • And more

If you notice any of these warning signs, don't hesitate to contact our service center as soon as possible.
