Are you finding it difficult to change gears in your vehicle these days? Are the gears sticking a bit or not shifting as smoothly as they should? When driving, whether it is an automatic or manual transmission, you need to be sure that your transmission is functioning properly to ensure you are in the correct gear for what kind of driving you are doing. If you’re looking for Kia transmission service in or around Concord, CA, we can help you out here at Concord Kia.
A lot of what helps make things run smoothly in your transmission is the transmission fluid, and it is recommended that you have a transmission fluid flush about every two years or 30,000 miles, although you will need to check your owner’s manual for the specifics of your vehicle. We can provide transmission flushes and any other services your transmission may need.
There are some telltale signs that your transmission fluid needs to be flushed or replaced. If you check your transmission fluid and it has gone from a healthy red to a nasty blackish color, it’s time, and probably past time, to get it serviced. If you’re hearing grinding or other odd sounds when you shift, that’s another sign that something isn’t working. If your gears end up slipping from where you had them, that’s a sign as well, and that could potentially be dangerous, so it is vital to get your car seen right away.
From routine maintenance to repairs, we can help you out at Concord Kia. If it is time for an oil change, tire rotation, brake check, battery check, or anything else, bring it in and our skilled service technicians will help get you back on the road as soon as possible.
