I live close to Stamps in San Tan Valley and have used them twice this winter. I can’t say enough about my experience. The staff there is a group of young men, very professional who went over and above helping me. They are wonderful communicators, and their customer service is great. This will be my go-to place with my car from now on. - Carol P. (5 star review on Google)
Our goal at Stamps Auto LLC in Gilbert, Queen Creek, and San Tan Valley is to provide you with the best transmission service possible. One way we do that is by helping you understand a little more about your transmission and the way it works. Knowledge about your vehicle and its systems allow you to catch problems when they arise and deal with them appropriately, saving you money and easing some of the stress of car ownership. You probably already know how to check your oil, and when to change it. Checking and maintaining transmission fluid is something people tend to understand far less about, however. Here’s what you need to know.
Transmissions rarely go out without a warning. Typically it takes a while, during which time there will be observable symptoms. Sometimes it’s an easy fix and sometimes it isn’t, but it’s always better to catch an issue and get it repaired as soon as possible. Stamps Auto LLC in Gilbert, Queen Creek, and San Tan Valley has provided you with a few things to watch out for.
Your brakes have a lot to do with how your car drives. Brakes are a frequently neglected item on a lot of people’s checklist, and many drivers on the road have subpar brakes and don’t even know it. A car that brakes well and brakes correctly is just as important as acceleration, handling, or any other aspect of a vehicle’s drivability. A car with brake issues has the potential to be a far more enjoyable ride, when fixed.
There are a number of things that may cause a transmission to fail; overheating, debris in the wrong place, or the natural wear and tear on transmission components, to name a few. However, these factors are not the leading cause of transmission failure. Take it from Stamps Auto LLC in Gilbert, Queen Creek, and San Tan Valley - the number one cause is neglected maintenance.
There’s a huge percentage of cars on the road, right now, with the check engine light illuminated. Many of them have had it on for years, even. Frequently, a check engine light will illuminate, but pose no immediate problems, so people just get used to it and learn to live with it being on. However, Stamps Auto LLC in Gilbert, Queen Creek, and San Tan Valley would like you to know that it’s worth having it looked into. Typically, the problem can be diagnosed by simply plugging your car into our computer; the car gives us a code, and we know what the problem is immediately.
