The Importance of Transmission Care

20151221 164232Why choose anyone else to do your transmission work? Terry’s Automotive and Qwik Lube offers a variety of professional auto services, including transmission service and repair. When you find yourself in need of transmission rebuilding or other services, you have to call Terry’s!

So how do you know if you have a problem with your transmission? One way to know that your transmission needs to be looked at is if you notice transmission slippage. This may feel like a change in gear while you are driving for no apparent reason. It could also feel like your car is struggling or underpowered. If you notice any of these, or if your car starts to make a whining noise, it’s time to have your transmission looked at!

You may also want to call Terry’s Automotive and Qwik Lube if you notice delayed engagement with your vehicle. After shifting out of park and in to drive, there should be a smooth transition. If there is a long pause after shifting out of park and your vehicle is not moving forward as it should, there could be a problem. Figure out the problem quickly and bring your vehicle into a trusted expert!

Call Terry’s Automotive for all of your auto repair needs!

Leaks and dashboard warning lights are other warnings that your transmission needs to be looked at. In the Gainesville, FL area, there is no better auto repair shop to call. Terry’s Automotive and Qwik Lube offers fast, friendly and affordable service! Call us today.

Drive Safer at Night

Driving after dark brings extra dangers. When you can't see far ahead, you have less time to react to an obstacle in the road, whether that's another car, a person, or an animal. But reduced visibility isn't the only concern.  There is so much else going on when you drive at night both inside and outside the vehicle.  Have you noticed that when your phone rings at night the glare is almost blinding for a moment?  It's much more distracting certainly.  With less traffic at night statistics still show that almost a third of traffic fatalities occur between 9 p.m. and 3 a.m. The worst times to be on the road are weekend nights, when a lot of people are partying.

JASPER Products Are Everywhere!

These days JASPER products can be found just about anywhere. Just ask Roman’s Design, a California-based business specializing in custom-built machinery.

Roman’s most recent activity involves the Royal Canadian Air Cadets with a contract for 11 glider launching systems as part of their glider training program.

The launcher is a single winch drum built on a solid steel frame. It's powered by a JASPER Remanufactured International 7.3L diesel engine producing 325 horsepower. When placed at the end of a runway, or field, the 6,700 pound system can pull a tethered glider into the air at speeds in excess of 80 mph.
