Transmissions and Four-Wheel Drive: Get it in Gear

TRANSMISSIONS | TRANSMISSION REPAIR

The transmission "transmits" power from the engine to the wheels and helps generate a vehicle's speed. An automatic transmission relies on a multitude of engine signals and road conditions to know which gears to engage.

A neglected or overworked transmission can lead to major problems that cost big bucks. A taxed transmission will tell you it's heading for trouble via several signs, including:

  • Transmission warning light on.
  • Transmission fluid leak.
  • A slipping clutch (manual transmissions).
  • Delayed or hard shifts (automatic transmission).
  • Failure to enter gear.

We can't overemphasize the importance of preventive maintenance in keeping your transmission in tip-top shape. Let Hong Kong Auto Service keep you on schedule with your maintenance, or turn to us when you're seeing telltale signs of impending issues.

FOUR-WHEEL DRIVE

Treasured by winter travelers and off-roaders alike, four-wheel drive systems—a.k.a. 4X4 or all-wheel drive—deliver reliable winter traction and rugged off-road performances at a price: Those additional 4X4 parts take a beating and can leak fluid or not shift into gear properly.

Rest assured, if you're facing a 4X4 dilemma, Hong Kong Auto Service will get your vehicle back on all four wheels in no time.
