Using the latest in state-of-the-art technology, we will install a safe and effective cleaner to suspend harmful varnish and sludge from the transmission valve body, torque converter and lines and install new high-tech fluid with conditioners.
Two types of automatic transmissions are available for medium and heavy-duty trucks: Automated manual transmissions and automatic transmissions. Both are two-pedal designs, and most drivers probably would be hard-pressed to tell much of a difference between them in real-world driving situations.
The Allison Automatic transmission has Continuous Power Technology, which means it never interrupts torque and power to the wheels. It also uses a torque converter as the starting device. An automated manual has incorporated electronic controls with basic manual transmission architecture to facilitate automated shifting of gears and of the input clutch starting device. Both the automated manual and the basic manual interrupt power and torque every time a shift is made whether automated or manually.
Just like your engine, you should have your transmission serviced regularly. When Flying Wrench Service in Kingston, WA services your transmission, we:

By replacing the old transmission fluid, the expert team at Flying Wrench Service essentially gives your vehicle’s transmission new life. The new fluid restores your clutch’s holding power. This reduces slip and heat production. Additionally, flushing the old fluid gets rid of small bits of clutch material and metal shavings, which can damage your transmission by clogging passages and wedging themselves between moving parts. Getting rid of the old fluid reduces wear within the transmission.
Replacing old fluid with new also provides better lubrication within the transmission, which boosts the holding ability of the transmission’s friction components. Improved lubrication also results in less heat. By decreasing friction and heat, your transmission will work better for a longer amount of time. A simple service can save you the money and time that come with a major automatic transmission repair or replacement for medium and heavy duty trucks.
