Automatic Transmission

Automatic Transmissions shift between gears automatically to optimize driving, and changes gears based on the driver’s throttle pedal, vehicle speed, engine speed, and vehicle load. Typical automatic transmissions have 4-5 forward gear ratios, a Reverse, Park, and Neutral gear. Shifting gears occur automatically once the car is in Drive and there is no need for a clutch pedal or gear shift like there is in a Manual Transmission. Automatic transmission repair is complicated based on all the components that make it up, and you need to have an automatic transmission issues properly assessed by auto mechanics. Call 702-433-5823 to talk to the mechanics of Express Lube & Auto Repair about your transmission problems.

Clutches

Drive a manual transmission? We know those too!

When shifting gears, the clutch engages and disengages from the flywheel and transfers the torque through the transmission. Clutches should help your vehicle start and shift gears smoothly. The clutch in your car receives a lot of wear and can eventually wear out. If your clutch begins slipping irregularly or is making noises that are raising suspicion, our Transmission Multi-Point Inspection check may find your problem is with your clutch and cannot be corrected by external adjustments, repair or replacement of a clutch-related component. Your certified Express Lube & Auto Repair expert technician will then:

  • Remove your vehicle’s transmission.
  • Inspect the clutch disc, pressure plate, flywheel and related components.
  • Reinstall of the transmission.
  • Refill with fresh, clean fluid.
  • Perform a lift check to ensure proper clutch installation and adjustment.
  • Replace any required components to meet Express Lube & Auto Repair’s exacting standards.

Your vehicle is then road tested to ensure proper clutch operation, and your car, truck or SUV is ready to go for miles and miles to come.

Visit us at 5400 E Tropicana Ave for service on your four-wheel drive transmission services.

Front-Wheel Drive Transmission

If your vehicle has Front-wheel drive, the engine drives the front wheels only.

The engine, transmission, and additional hardware are all located in the front of the car. If you are in need, Express Lube & Auto Repair of Las Vegas, NV will gladly repair front-wheel drive transmission vehicles.

Manual Transmission

Driving a vehicle with a Manual Transmission requires using the clutch pedal and gear shift to manually shift gears based on the speed of the vehicle. Manual transmissions have been built with anywhere from two to eight gears. Front-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive are the two main configurations for manual transmissions. Typically, manual transmissions require less maintenance then automatic transmissions. At Express Lube & Auto Repair, our auto mechanics can diagnose your vehicle and then recommend the transmission repair or transmission service you need to ensure safety and improve the lifetime of your vehicle.

Transfer Cases

A transfer case is a part of a four-wheel drive system found in four-wheel drive and all-wheel-drive vehicles. The transfer case receives power from the transmission and sends it to both the front and rear axles. This can be done with a set of gears, but the majority of transfer cases manufactured today are chain driven. The transfer case is connected to the transmission and also to the front and rear axles by means of drive shafts.
