We are all aware that newer cars use a computer to control the engine. Many vehicles use the same computer to control the fuel injectors, ignition, transmission, etc. Automotive engineers did this in order to improve the efficiency of the vehicle's power train and gain better fuel mileage. Your vehicle's engine and transmission are connected together in more ways than simply being bolted together.
Consider that shudder you felt cruising down the highway. The computer is using sensors on the engine and transmission to detect such things as throttle position, vehicle speed, etc. As you drive the car, you are constantly changing the demands on the power train (acceleration, cruising, passing, coasting and idling). The computer recognizes and controls this by monitoring various sensors throughout the car's engine.
Without special equipment and training, no one would be able to tell if a shudder is caused by something slipping inside the transmission, the torque converter, a weak spark plug, a dirty fuel injection system, a loose electrical connection, and the list goes on. Our trained technicians are qualified and experienced to determine what service - if any - your transmission may need. Call us today!
