Transmission Replacement Service

Transmission Replacement At Germain Kia of Columbus

Transmission replacement is an expensive repair on your Kia car or SUV. It is important to check and maintain your transmission fluid regularly. The transmission sends the right amount of power to the wheels of the vehicle from the engine. It controls how fast the wheel spins and is made up of a shaft and gears. Transmission fluid needs to be changed. It gets dirty and should be changed every 50,000 miles. When you drive long distances, it may be practical to change it more frequently than the recommended 100,000 miles.

This process cleans built-up dirt, rust, and grime in the system. The dirty fluid is replaced with clean transmission fluid.

A leak needs to be repaired immediately because without fluid your transmission will fail. Signs of a leak are brown or red fluid underneath your car. Our trained technicians will tell you how often to change your transmission fluid. Signs it's time for transmission fluid exchange are leaking fluid, problems with shifting gears, problems moving along on the road, and grinding gears. Transmission filters need to be changed too.
