Frequently Asked Questions

 

 

Can you tell me how much it will cost to overhaul my transmission?

When it comes to pricing a transmission repair or rebuild, there are several factors that need to be investigated to determine the specific cause of your transmission problem. We offer to all our customers our free External Transmission Diagnostic Service, which will help to identify what type of problem may exist, and what would be the best and most cost effective solution for the repair of your automatic or standard transmission problem. This External Transmission Diagnostic Service includes checking the transmission fluid level and condition. We will road test your vehicle for any drivability issues, and we will check your electronically controlled transmission for any diagnostic trouble codes that may be in your vehicle’s computer memory, if your vehicle has this capability. Many transmissions can be fixed without a rebuild or overhaul. To better understand your transmission’s problems and to provide you with a comprehensive and accurate estimate, we invite you to bring in your car for a free diagnosis. Remember, the most expensive repair is the one you didn’t need.

 

Why do I need to service my automatic transmission?

As your vehicle accumulates miles, your fluid in your automatic transmission begins to deteriorate with heat, contaminants, and oxidation. The fluid's deterioration will reduce the efficiency of the unit as well as shorten its useful life. Transmission failure is very costly and Routine Maintenance is the best way to prevent that from happening. Eagle Transmission recommends servicing your transmission fluid every 20,000 miles.

 

Why does my check engine light come on?

There are many reasons why your check engine light will come on. It could be as simple as a loose gas cap or a dirty air filter. The check engine light has come on when a registered trouble code has been recorded to your car's internal computer. Most general repair facilities charge a fee (sometimes up to $100) for this service - Our location offers a FREE Diagnosis!

 

What are my maintenance schedules?

hrough online subscriptions, our shop has access to the most current manufacturers’ recommended maintenance schedules for all makes and models of cars, both foreign and domestic. We are able to perform the factory recommended services based on your car’s mileage. We keep your car’s service and repair records in our computer system and can send you reminders about upcoming recommended services.

 

What is a timing belt?

Most vehicles today are using timing belts, which is a flat rubber belt with teeth. It synchronizes valve and piston movement inside your engine. They are lighter, quieter, more efficient and more economical than the timing chains that were more common on older vehicles. Like any other part on your engine the timing belt eventually wears out. Vehicle manufactures usually recommend timing belt replacement every 60,000-90,000 miles. It is very important to replace the belt before it breaks as it may cause major engine damage. A broken belt can result in an open valve being struck by a moving piston. This can damage valves, pistons, cylinder heads, and cylinder walls. In addition to the inconvenience and the cost of a tow you may need a new engine.

 

Why do I need to flush my coolant system?

Over time coolant is depleted of buffering ingredients and becomes extremely corrosive, literally eating holes in cooling system components. By-products of corrosion, as well as rust and scale, clog the passageways that conduct the water through the radiator and choke off the flow. This may result in an overheated engine that may be damaged beyond repair. The entire cooling system is first cleaned and then all debris and worn out coolant is completely flushed from the system. Then, fresh new premium coolant is added. Conditioners are also included to prevent rust and corrosion and cooling system sealer is also included to prevent leaks. Manufacturers recommend flushing the system every 30,000 miles for most vehicles or if the coolant is contaminated, is acidic, or its freeze point protection is not adequate.
