Transmission failure rarely happens out of the blue - there’s a good chance a transmission will give you a good amount of warning before kicking the bucket. Here are some things you can watch out for, from Pitts Automotive, Inc in Tuscaloosa, AL.
Your vehicle's engine needs clean air to burn the fuel – and it needs a lot of clean air. In fact, a typical vehicle needs about 216,000 gallons of air for every tank of gas. All that air passes through a filter that catches the dust and dirt. Eventually, the filter gets completely full, and because the filter can only hold so much, dirt starts getting through. At Pitts Automotive, Inc in Tuscaloosa, we ensure you get the best air quality in your vehicle and explain the process of where this dirty air is going to our area drivers.
