Transmission Repair and Replacement

Maintaining a healthy transmission is vital to the overall well-being of your vehicle. Your transmission is a complex system of gears that delivers power to your engine. Over time your transmission builds up deposits and wears down. If not maintained the transmission can fail which will lead to a costly replacement

Transmission Flush Service

One of the most overlooked maintenance procedures is the flushing of the transmission fluid. This is the cause of most transmission failures and service issues. Replacing your transmission fluid and filters is the single most important step that you can take to extending the service life and reliability of your transmission. At Dorn’s we have the tooling and equipment to flush most vehicle transmissions. Don’t forget to ask about our synthetic transmission service.

A transmission flush helps to:

  • Remove harmful deposits and buildups of debris and sludge
  • Removes chatter or slippage
  • Reduces hard shifting

If you feel that your vehicle is not shifting the way it used to, then it is likely time to replace your transmission fluid before it turns to a more costly issue. It is important to have a vehicle that performs as you expect it to.
