Because we are thorough with our car servicing, we can recommend extra work or repairs. As a trusted independent garage, we deliver reliable services and supply quality new or reconditioned parts with attractive warranties.
Automatic Gearbox Repairs
Automatic gearboxes are popular with many motorists in the Grays area, but it is important to keep them in good condition. automatic gearboxes often have a maintenance-free label, but they still require periodical checks to sustain performance. Also, a mega flush keeps your transmission fluid clean.
Dartford Transmissions and Autocare Ltd can undertake automatic gearbox repairs to get your car running smoothly again ahead of the winter months.
Mega Flush Services
As discussed in the passage above, a professional mega flush service resolves and prevents problems with automatic transmission systems and instances of automatic transmission failure. Our independent Land Rover specialists and Range Rover specialists recommend a periodic flush to keep your gearbox working as it should. A mega flush replaces up to 99.9% of original fluids.
When preparing your vehicle for a winter in Grays, a mega flush is an ideal choice for minimising the risk of transmission failure in cold, dark conditions. It can also reduce the potential for manual or automatic gearbox repairs.
We can also offer this service as BMW and Jaguar specialists, and on makes and models from the world’s leading car and LCV manufacturers.
During the winter, your battery is subjected to cold temperatures, and these can reduce electrical output. You will also use the lights, heater and blower more during the winter, placing the battery under additional strain. It is very important to keep your battery in good condition and fully charged. Our trusted independent garage can check your battery for you and replace it.
We check and change batteries as a standalone service, or if car servicing or the MOT test indicates a possible drain that could cause issues during the winter. Our services in Grays ensure all vehicles run as they should, giving you the peace of mind that your car will run well even in the coldest conditions.
