If there’s one thing we know at Phoenix Motors Automotive Repair in Madison, AL, its the importance of a transmission. While engines get a lot of the spotlight in conversations about vehicles, we know that the transmission is the unsung hero of your automobile. We want you to know just how important it is, too.
At Phoenix Motors Automotive Repair in Madison, AL, transmissions are our specialty. We know exactly how they work and exactly how to maintain and repair one. You know you have a transmission, and you know it’s important, but what does it actually do? Here’s the simple answer to a complicated question.
Car enthusiasts would argue that "those were the days". Everything you drove was built like a tank and had the chrome on it so you enjoyed washing it but NO power steering. For most of us, it is hard to remember life without power steering – cranking those great big steering wheels? It was a pretty good workout. Now power steering is standard. The heart of any power steering system is its pump. The pump pressurizes the power steering fluid that provides assistance for steering. Most pumps are driven by a belt that is run by the engine – a few are electrically powered. A high-pressure hose passes fluid from the pump to the steering gear. A low-pressure hose returns the fluid back to the pump. Here at Phoenix Motors Automotive Repair in Madison, AL we know that you depend on that power steering and check your fluid & hoses religiously!
If you drive a car, truck, or SUV that runs on gasoline, there's a good chance you’ve run it low on fuel a few times (or more than a few times,) and maybe even run out of gas completely a time or two. At Phoenix Motors Automotive Repair in Madison, AL, we like to provide information applicable to you. Running a vehicle low on fuel is something we’re all guilty of, and most of us don’t think twice about it. But, can it be bad for your car?
Allen was instrumental in my car getting a new engine at a dealership. He gave excellent advice after researching on the Internet. He stood by ready to help me when my car was disabled. Thank you for being there and for giving me advice. - Lane C. (5 Star Google Review)
I've been a customer at Phoenix Motors for years. Allen, the owner, is honest and skilled and goes out of his way to be helpful. My mother-in-law's SUV recently had a major breakdown amidst our rare snowy weather. Allen made it a priority to get her vehicle looked at. He noticed there was a problem with the timing chain that would probably require an engine replacement. He did further research and found that it was the subject of a recall. He had her vehicle towed to the dealership where it is now getting a free engine replacement, saving her thousands of dollars! Thanks Allen! - Patrick J. (5 Star Google Review)
