Frequently Asked Questions

We have an FAQ list that we hope will help you
answer some our most common enquiries.

1. Why should I change the transmission fluid in my automatic gearbox?

Friction build-up within the transmission creates internal heat. Heat build up is normal, however over time it destroys the fluid’s lubricating properties which can lead to transmission failures. We can service all types of transmissions, transfer boxes and differentials to help prevent premature failure.

2. Can my gearbox be repaired or do I need to buy a new gearbox or used unit?

We can repair your original unit for less than the price of a new gearbox, and also provide a considerably longer guarantee than 2nd hand units meaning no issues with incorrect gear ratios, software coding problems or a unit that fails again in a short period of time and you’re back at square one.

3. My regular repairer has advised me to keep driving and let it get worse. Is that wise?

The cheapest a repair will be is today. By carrying on using the vehicle to progress the fault will only cause more damage to internal hardware parts which could be reused to reduce costs. If you are unsure with any driveline problem you may be having contact us and we will be happy to help.

4. Is it just Automatic gearboxes you specialise in?

We have specialised in Automatic Transmission repairs for over 50 years and in the process have developed our skills to subsequently become specialists in DSG Gearbox repairs, Transfer box and 4×4 unit repairs as well as manual gearboxes and clutches

5. My vehicle has lost drive, can you help me with this issue?

Yes we can arrange a recovery of the vehicle, diagnose the issue and report back with our findings. From this point we can give you an accurate estimate to repair the fault.

The cheapest a repair will be is today

Minimise the risk of consequential damage to your transmission by ceasing to drive the vehicle and booking in for a diagnostic session today.
