Gear Oil Versus Transmission Fluid 

First, it's important to note that manual transmissions use gear oil, whereas automatic transmissions use transmission fluid. The two fluids have different properties and must be chosen carefully to ensure optimal performance. When you bring your truck in for service, our expert technicians will assess the condition of your transmission fluid or gear oil and make any necessary changes or top-offs.

Symptoms of Clutch Failure 

When it comes to the clutch system, there are several symptoms that can indicate a problem. If you notice a burning smell when shifting gears or if your clutch pedal feels spongy or unresponsive, it's possible that your clutch is failing. Other signs of a failing clutch include slipping gears, difficulty shifting, and grinding noises when shifting gears.

Transmission Overhauls and Clutch Replacements 

At Connect Truck Center, our technicians are well-versed in clutch repair and replacement. We use only high-quality parts and components to ensure that your clutch system is working as it should. If necessary, we can also provide a complete transmission overhaul to get your truck back on the road in top condition.

Transmission Coolers Explained 

Finally, it's important to note the importance of a transmission cooler. This device helps regulate the temperature of your transmission fluid or gear oil, preventing it from overheating and breaking down prematurely. If you do a lot of heavy-duty hauling or towing, a transmission cooler is an essential component to ensure the longevity of your transmission.
