Our Orlando drivers have been experiencing issues with their transmissions and there are a few things that we here at Griffis Automotive Repair, Inc feel are important to know so that you are more comfortable and confident if you are, indeed experiencing a transmission problem of any kind. First, if you drive a vehicle manufactured in the past few decades, there’s a good chance your transmission has a variety of sensors attached to it which monitors all kinds of things - fluid pressure, vehicle speed, temperature, air intake at the engine, and so on. The first thing to check is your Transmission Sensor, which is a much more affordable fix than replacing your transmission!
Fleet cars, vans, and trucks see a lot of wear and tear. If your engine has already called it a day, then it’s obviously case closed - you need a new engine or a new vehicle. However, there are many times when an engine is about to go down, and you can get it taken care of before it kicks the bucket for good - saving you time and towing in the process.
Sometimes a bad wheel bearing is obvious, sometimes it’s difficult to diagnose. From Griffis Automotive Repair, Inc in Orlando, FL, here are some symptoms to watch out for, and what to do about a bad wheel bearing.
Once your engine is installed, you’ll want to keep it running right. Griffis Automotive Repair, Inc in Orlando, FL has you covered. Sometimes, engines just wear out - however, most of the time they meet an early demise as a result of improper maintenance. Keep your engine running like new by maintaining it the way your technician recommends.
Keeping your fuel system maintained will prevent premature parts failure and poor running conditions. Here at Griffis Automotive Repair, Inc we have tips on the important aspects of diesel fuel system maintenance, to keep your diesel fleet trucks running smoothly - longer.
Air. Air in the system causes all kinds of issues, from hard starting, poor running conditions, or an engine that won’t run at all. If too much air gets in the system, the fuel pump won’t be able to deliver fuel, and the engine will stall, die, or fail to start. Air enters the system via a leak or a bad seal - a deteriorated o-ring, worn component, faulty hose, or otherwise. Here we inspect your lines and connections to ensure they are in good shape and track down any leaks we notice air in the system.
Diesel engines are known for their durability, but even the best engine has to be replaced every once in a while. At Griffis Automotive Repair, Inc in Orlando, FL, we want you to be aware of signs that your engine is about to call it quits.
