DIAGNOSTICS

We have invested in the most modern equipment, which most importantly helps us to ensure that our diagnosis is accurate which saves you valuable time and money.

Transmission problems, TCM and valve body problems are further examples of the innovations we have incorporated to insure that our customers receive the best in both product and service. Moreover, we are continually improving our systems and processes so we can offer you a cost effective solution. If, perchance your gearbox / turbo charger cannot be repaired, we can provide reconditioned units at very high standards and very competitive rates.

What is TCM?

TCM - A electronic control unit is a device that controls modern electronic automatic transmissions. An TCM generally uses sensors from the gearbox as well as data provided by the Engine Control Unit to calculate how and when to change gears in the vehicle for optimum performance, fuel economy and shift quality.

What are Valve Bodies?

A valve body is a hydraulic control center that receives pressurized fluid from the main pump operated by the fluid coupling/torque converter. The pressure coming from this pump is regulated and used to run a network of spring-loaded valves, check balls and servo pistons. As transmissions become more high tech, it is harder and harder to diagnose hydraulic circuit problems. The continued evolution of close tolerance and balanced hydraulic circuits, combined with more sensitive sensors that can pick up on the slightest bit of slippage, can lead to a host of major problems. Valve bodies that are judged to be worn out are restored to full operation and are tested.

What is a Torque Converter?

A torque converter is a hydrodynamic device used to transmit rotating mechanical power. Torque convertors are used in automobile transmissions as an alternative to a mechanical clutch. There are numerous risks with using a torque converter however our highly skilled team will make sure that this technique is used correctly to provide a remedy to your vehicles problems in a timely manner.
