Transmission Repair in Noblesville, IN
We Service Automatic and Manual Transmissions
Professional Transmission Service
All vehicles are equipped with a transmission. This is responsible for transferring power from your car’s engine to its wheels. The two main types of transmission include automatic and manual. With an automatic transmission, the car “automatically” shifts into different gears depending on its rate of speed. This type of transmission has an oil pan that contains the transmission fluid, which provides the force required to shift into different gears. On the other hand, a car with a manual transmission requires the driver to shift the gears. And instead of an oil pan, the transmission fluid is held in a case. The third type of transmission is the CVT, or continuously variable transmission. It is a type of automatic transmission in that it shifts for you. However, it uses a system of two pulleys and a belt or chain. At The Noble Mechanic in Noblesville, Indiana, we are trained and experienced in transmission repair and maintenance. Our ASE-Certified technicians are skilled and knowledgeable in automatic, manual, and continuously variable transmissions. If your vehicle requires transmission maintenance or repair, we can take care of it for you.
Automatic Transmission Repair
Our auto repair team offers everything your automatic transmission needs for top performance. We can replace the pan gasket, filter, and transmission fluid for starters. It’s important to note that some cars are designed with a permanent transmission filter, while others have transmissions that are ‘sealed for life’ – meaning that they do not require any service or maintenance for the car’s lifetime. However, that is not to say that problems cannot and will not still arise that warrant professional transmission repair. Common problems with an automatic transmission include fluid leaks, a defective solenoid, clogged transmission filter, transmission cooler issues, worn bearings, and more. Your transmission is a key player in the operation of your vehicle, and where there is something wrong, it’s important to come in at your earliest convenience. When there’s an issue with your automatic transmission, you may experience a grinding or shaking sensation, a whining, humming, clunking noise, a burning smell, or slipping gears. Our transmission repair specialists will run diagnostics and perform inspections to troubleshoot the precise issue and walk you through the needed repair.
Manual Transmission Repair
For manual transmissions, the approach to service is a bit different since they don’t have a transmission filter. This means that as the transmission’s metallic components wear down due to heat, friction, and pressure, the transmission fluid accrues metal particles but can’t filter them. So, we drain the transmission fluid from its case to flush out all the particulates and then fill the case up with new transmission fluid. This is required regularly to ensure the gears, bearings, shafts, and other components are properly lubricated. In addition to contaminated fluid, possible issues with a manual transmission include worn synchronizers, worn or broken shaft bearing, loose transmission mount, misaligned clutch housing, defective bushings… the list goes on. If you notice that it’s hard to shift gears, the gear gets stuck, or there’s a grinding noise, make an appointment with our transmission repair shop online or by phone at 317-733-5009.
