passenger carI like to have my car taken in and checked out every once in a while. I have a car that is not that new and things go wrong every once in a while. Sometimes I get a flat tire, other times my car unexpectedly stops running. Luckily, these things happen very rarely but it is good to know who to turn to when they do happen.

I like to go to certain shops to get the repair and maintenance work that I need done on my car. I like to go to a Seattle area shop for bigger jobs and I like to go to some local shops for the smaller things. When I want to do things like make sure that my differential is working well, I go to a Seattle area shop that can work on things like the transmission, differential, and axles.

The Seattle shop that I like to go to is great for Seattle differential repair and for many other kinds of jobs. I like to go to them to make sure that my differential is working well. The mechanics there are qualified and experienced and they are good at ensuring that my differential is running the way that it is supposed to be.

I Am Glad That I Have West Seattle Transmission Repair Options If I Ever Need It

transmissionI have an older car and I need to do a lot to keep it running smoothly. It’s a 2002 Saturn. I do a lot of maintenance on my car and there are some problems that it has that no one has been able to fix. One of these problems is that my car eats oil and we don’t know where the oil goes. There is no oil leak in the car so the oil just somehow gets used up. I have to check the oil levels regularly and I have to put more oil in every two weeks or every month, depending on how much I drive.

I want to keep my car working well for as long as possible. So far, it has been running pretty well and that is thanks to the good maintenance that we have always done on it. I like being able to have a car that runs smoothly even if it is an older car. I am not ready to buy a new car yet and I want to save up some money first.

Luckily, I have some great mechanics that I know can do some good work on my car if something ever goes wrong. I have something that needs to be fixed every few months or so, which is just the nature of having an older car. It is mostly because the parts get worn out and old. If I ever need some transmission repair, I know that I can find some great West Seattle transmission repair and have the job done well.

Mercedes Transmission Reset Procedures

When a Shift Adapt Reset is Needed

Resets should be performed after all rebuilt transmission installs. One should also be completed after any service work that involves reprogramming the TCM/PCM or replacing components.

Sometimes an aftermarket scan tool can complete the reset just fine on its own. If it can’t, then you will need to do so manually. A basic how-to on this topic follows:

Steps to Completing a Shift Adapt

Fortunately, shift adapts are relatively easy, as long as the technician follows the steps necessary. These can be broken down as follows. Keep in mind that this is a general guide to resetting shift adapts intended to apply to as many vehicle models as possible, and you should always consult the automobile’s manual for special procedures or circumstances.

  1. The first step is to complete whatever repairs or maintenance brought the vehicle into the shop in the first place. You may want to hold off on a post-service test drive until the shift adapt process is completed.
  2. Make sure to clear all DTC codes from the TCM.
  3. Check the transmission fluid level and temperature. It should be around 150 degrees F (about 65 C) before beginning the process.
  4. Start the vehicle. Set the shift lever in neutral, move it into drive, and then return it to neutral. Wait five seconds, then repeat this process four more times.
  5. Gently increase engine speed to the equivalent of 45 mph, then gently decelerate. Do this five times.
  6. Repeat step five, but raise engine speed slightly faster.
  7. Repeat step five, but raise engine speed very quickly.
  8. Shut off the vehicle and leave it alone for two minutes or more.

Shift adapt resets are necessary for installing a rebuilt transmission successfully. Failing to take this important step can cause problems for your customers, from hard shifting to internal transmission damage. So take the time to perform this important procedure correctly.

Seattle Clutch Repair Helped My Brother’s Car To Shift Smoothly

August 9, 2016

sedanMy brother has had a lot of problems with his car in the last few years. It has over 130,000 miles on it and it has had a lot of problems especially after reaching that point. I am glad that my car doesn’t have as many problems as his car does, as my car has just about as many miles on it as his car does. Luckily, my brother knows some great repair shops that help him get his car on the road and driving well.

My brother had some problems with his clutch recently and he needed to get it repaired. He had problems with the way that his car was shifting, as it shifted unevenly and got shaky whenever he tried to switch gears. Being able to shift easily is important, as it can get very hard to drive a car when the clutch isn’t working properly.

Luckily, my brother got some great Seattle clutch repair from a great mechanic and he is very happy with the results. He now has a smooth ride every time and his car shifts smoothly no matter where he is driving. He loves to go to this mechanic because they always help him get his Pontiac functioning well despite all of the problems that it has.

Got a Seattle Transmission Flush for My Car so I Can Continue to Travel

4 driving a fixed carI love driving my car around. It’s a way for me to see so many different new places. I like being able to drive my car to wherever I want to explore. I tend to go to new places, because they intrigue me the most. I’m definitely an adventurer, and my car is my mode of transportation. So when I found out my car needed a transmission flush, I made sure to get it right away.

I went to my local place to get the flush, as the Seattle transmission flush people are really good at what they do. I’m always impressed with their work, and I knew they’d be able to take care of my transmission in a professional manner. So when I got my car back and was able to travel around again, I was really thankful for their help.

So next week, I think I’ll take a road trip to some towns over. While I’ve explored a lot of the area, I never went in that direction before. I think I can finally explore it next week, now that my car is all raring and ready to go. I think I feel like I can take on the world, as long as I have my car to drive.

Nissan CVT JF010E Transmission

posted by Marks33527 @ 9:17 AM
July 25, 2016

Nissan is putting the CVT transmission in many of their cars.  As most transmission shops and all of the dealers can’t or won’t work on CVT transmissions repairs become replacements at a very high price.

One of the problems that come up on the Nissan units is code P1778 Step Motor Function.  We just had a customer come in with that code after visiting the dealer.  The dealer quoted over six thousand dollars to replace the transmission with part and labor.

We replaced the Step Motor for less than four hundred dollars.

Fixed My Car at the Lynnwood Manual Transmission Repair Shop

July 23, 2016

3 blue carHaving a manual car really isn’t that bad. I have been able to get around with my car for years, and I am really used to it being manual now. I actually prefer to drive manual because I am so used to it. But when the transmission started to get a little wonky, I knew I would have to take it somewhere to get it fixed. It’s my pride and joy, after all. I can’t see myself with another car.

I ended up taking my car to the Lynnwood manual transmission repair shop that’s near where I work. It’s a place that I had heard a lot of good reviews about, so I had no doubt in my mind that they’d be able to make sure my car runs perfectly fine. It’s something that I figured would make sense, since they have good reviews after all.

In the end, my car was fixed just fine and I don’t think I ever have to worry about the transmission ever again. My car now runs like a dream, and I love driving it around. It’s something that’s really important to me, so I am basically really glad I was able to fix it.

I’m Going to Try the Renton Automatic Transmission Repair Place

2 pretty carI love my car, but it’s not without its weaknesses. The thing is, my car sometimes has issues with its transmission. While it’s a really cool car and definitely turns the heads of people that see it, I really wish it had a better transmission system. Then just the other day, I found out about a place that can repair a car’s transmission and make it just fine. I’m actually really excited to give it a try, because it’s in Renton and I live there.

The Renton automatic transmission repair place really caught my eye, because honestly my car’s transmission could really use a fix. It’s the only part about my car that sticks out as something I wish was better. The way my car runs otherwise is perfectly fine, and I love the way it looks on the outside. But this place could be the place that makes it absolutely perfect.

Basically, I’m going to get my car fixed up really soon. I’m going to take a trip to the Renton automatic transmission repair place and have them look at my car. I’m sure they can fix my transmission and make my cool car run much better as a whole.

Ford Transit Connect’s 4F27E Transmission

posted by Marks33527 @ 9:05 AM
July 19, 2016

Ford in its wisdom has put together the 2009-2013 Transit Connect with a 4F27E automatic transmission.  Prior vehicles Ford used this transmission on were the Ford Focus, Fiesta and the Ford Eco Sport.  All smaller cars of limited weight.  Why they designed a small delivery van with this transmission is unknown.

To date we have rebuilt no less that fifteen Transit Connects with the common problem of the final drive in the transmission failing.  The final drive is the ring and pinion set that delivers power to the front axles.

The final drives don’t seem to be able to handle the weight or load of the vehicle.  This would not be our first choice of  a delivery vehicle.

1 car frontHaving a car in the Seattle area is always a good thing. While you deal with a lot of traffic, there’s so many places around and in Seattle that you never have to drive far. What I really like is there’s a nice car repair shop in West Seattle that I really like, and they’ve helped me before in the past. I can always depend on them whenever I’m in a bind.

What they’re great at specifically are transmission repairs, and I went there when I was looking for a West Seattle manual transmission repair place. They’re great people, and they were able to fix up my car in a jiffy. I was really glad I had a place so close that I can depend on for reliable repairs like that. It really was a nice thing to find when I was exploring West Seattle.

It’s great to be able to live in the Seattle area because of all the places in and around it. There are endless places to go to, and so many resources when I need help with something. I think it’s one of the best places to live because of that. While the traffic could be better, at least I know I’m not alone. I always have a place where I can fix my car when I need it.
