Frequently asked questions
+

What is an Automatic Transmission?

The primary difference between an automatic and a manual transmission is the method the car uses to shift gears. In an automatic transmission, the car decides when you shift and automatically changes gears for you.
+

How does an Automatic Gearbox work?

The key difference between a manual and an automatic transmission is that, in a manual car, different gears are engaged to achieve different driving speeds, while in an automatic transmission, the same set of gears produces all of the different gear ratios. This is called the 'Planetary Gearset'. This one part creates all of the different gear ratios that the transmission can produce. The other key component, the 'Torque Converter' is responsible for taking power from your engine to the Planetary Gearset itself.
+

What are common Automatic Gearbox problems?

The automatic transmission is a complex piece of engineering, featuring a large number of moving parts, and can cause problems if neglected. Most common issues include: lack of response (eg to 'kickdown'), whining or clunking noises, unwillingness to change up when accelerating, leaking fluid and burning smells!
+

How can Automatic Gearbox problems be diagnosed?

Most garages will begin by performing a road test of the car, i.e. driving the car to experience the fault, and taking it from there. However, deep 'transmission specialists' will be familiar with the different gearboxes fitted to different cars, each with their own most common issues and solutions.
+

What does Automatic Gearbox repair cost?

Transmission repair costs depend very much on the nature of the issue. Garages will likely give you an estimate via WhoCanFixMyCar.com but will need to examine the car to give you an exact price. Don't be tempted to ignore transmission issues - you may simply be causing additional damage elsewhere.

Winter Car Health Check Prices and Details

Winter is the time of year when most accidents occur as a result of dangerous driving conditions. The adverse weather poses a constant threat to our vehicles; therefore, it is important to perform some pre winter car checks.

Garages offer winter health checks for your vehicles to provide optimum safety on the roads during these darker months. These safety checks, like that of a service but tailored towards winter, examine six main areas of the car.



What is included in a Winter Health Check?

Tyre Inspection

In winter, tyres are more likely to slip or skid than the rest of the year. Therefore, increased contact and pressure is required to increase safety. Winter tyres may also be suggested if you often drive in remote areas or in temperatures that sit below 7 degrees Celsius.



Antifreeze and coolant top-up

Breaking down in the winter is normally related to the car’s cooling system. You should always have a 50/50 mix of antifreeze and water to avert the vehicle from seizing up.



Lights Assessment

The importance of working lights all year round is an essential part of road safety. In the winter, the days only get shorter and the influx of fog further threatens good visibility. It is also against the law to drive with broken lights, hence a lights assessment is an immensely important element of a winter car check.



Battery Test

Car battery problems are the pits, this car check certifies that your car battery is charged, secure and operating safely.



Oil level change/replenishment

Having the right amount of oil in your vehicle eliminates the risk of engine problems. The consistency of your oil can also vary in regard to the season, for example sometimes thinner oil is needed in winter for the car to run more smoothly.



Windscreen Wiper Check
The unpredictable weather conditions of winter can make visibility a constant battle, one that need not be made harder with windscreen wipers that are not working effectively. The garage will also inspect your wiper fluid level, topping it up if needed.

We work with a network of 15,129 mechanics and garages across the UK so we can find competitive Winter Check deals for you.



To find the best Winter Check available in your region;

  • Enter your car registration number.
  • Give us a few details about your car and your requirements.
  • We’ll send you a great selection of quotes from mechanics and garages in your area.

You can then compare the quotes and read reviews from previous customers to find the best Winter Check deals in your area, before booking the Winter Check.
