At Greenville Auto Clinic, LLC in Greenville, AL, our trained staff has the answers to get you safely back on the road.

On gas engines, the fuel delivery system is pretty simple - an electric pump draws gas from the tank, and pushes it to the injectors. Diesel systems are a little more complex. At Greenville Auto Clinic, LLC in Greenville, AL, we like to keep you informed about what’s on your truck, how it works, and how to maintain it, so you stay reliably on the road.
Leaky transmissions can be a pain, not only do they make a mess on the underside of your car, and in your driveway, but the transmission fluid is expensive and inconvenient to deal with. At Greenville Auto Clinic, LLC in Greenville, AL we want to provide you with some information on where transmission leaks start and how to end them so that maybe we can eliminate any future leaks.
Manual transmissions aren’t necessarily simple, but they’re much easier to understand in concept than their automatic counterparts. You’re probably aware there are gears in manual transmissions - but there’s a little more to it than that. Here are some of the major components you’ll find in a manual transmission.
Shafts - There are three main shafts inside a manual transmission. There’s an input shaft where engine power is transferred via the clutch, and that drives the layshaft, also known as the countershaft. The countershaft has different sized gears to achieve various gear ratios. Corresponding gears on the countershaft connect to the output shaft. The output shaft is connected to the driveshaft, which powers the differential.
