Autodata has launched an important time-saving Service Transmission module that makes it even easier for technicians to identify the service operations required in a simple and efficient way. The new module provides technicians with instant access to all the technical information needed to carry out servicing to manual, automatic, and auto-shift manual (ASM) transmissions, as recommended by the vehicle manufacturer.
In addition to providing technicians with the relevant tightening torques for drain and filler plugs, as well as oil grades, and capacities in one easy to use module. The new module has step-by-step instructions and illustrations that guide technicians as they carry out model specific drain and refill procedures. Autodata’s service transmission module helps to protect workshops from making simple but costly mistakes by technicians with cautionary notes, that if ignored may cause damage to the vehicle during maintenance and repair procedures.
Transmissions are a time-consuming and awkward aspect of vehicle servicing. Get it wrong, and your workshop could end up with a hefty bill. Unlike standard manual transmissions which generally have straightforward fluid drain and refill procedures, automatic transmission systems can be more complicated.
When servicing automatic and ASM transmissions, it isn’t as simple as just removing the drain plug, draining the fluid, and then refilling the transmission. Various additional factors need to be considered, such as the special tools and diagnostic equipment required, the specific drain and refill procedures – set by vehicle manufacturers that need to be followed, and of course, the specific grade and capacities of transmission fluid required. With Autodata’s new service transmission module, technicians will have all this information at their fingertips to help them complete transmission servicing more efficiently.
This new module joins 34 other Autodata modules, more than 550,000 procedures, over 125,000 diagrams and illustrations, which cover over 32,000 models across 136 car and van manufacturers worldwide.
