Automatic transmissions have gotten more sophisticated in recent years for Byram car owners. Take the number of gears for starters: The base is four speeds, five is very common. Many manufacturers are using six speeds and several have seven or even eight speeds. As you can imagine, this means more parts in your vehicle's transmission.

Today's transmissions are computer controlled. Some high end transmissions have two or three computers. Our experienced technicians at Elite Automotive & Tire Center in Byram receive ongoing training on transmission service and repair.

Andover, Stanhope and Allamuchy car owners trust that transmissions are engineered to last. But NJ motorists need to understand that they are also engineered to tighter tolerances. If a portion of the transmission is starved for lubrication, it can lead to failure.

This can happen with not enough fluid. And, if the transmission fluid gets dirty or sludgy, small passages in the transmission can get clogged; then the lubricant is blocked and can't get to all the parts to protect them, so they wear out prematurely.

Most newer vehicles in Byram, Stanhope, and Allamuchy require special transmission fluids – at Elite Automotive & Tire Center we can make sure you get the type your manufacturer recommends.

As you can imagine, repairing one of these new transmissions can be quite costly at most Allamuchy auto repair shops. That's why manufacturers have a schedule for how often Byram drivers should change the fluid and what type of fluid to use.
