Brake Repair

Atlas Transmission is the leader in Sumter ~ Columbia for all of your  needs! Atlas Transmission provides a wide range of repair services for both import and domestic automotive brake systems at our auto repair shop in Sumter ~ Columbia. Every auto mechanic at our Sumter ~ Columbia shop knows it is important that you understand how the brake system in your car or truck plays a vital role in keeping your passengers and you safe. The components in the automotive brake system are not designed to last for the life of your vehicle and wear down over time as you drive in and around the streets of Sumter ~ Columbia. The pads (aka shoes) are the most common brake replacement service we do at our Sumter ~ Columbia shop. This is because every time you depress your pedal the brake pad material wears down against the brake rotor. If the brake pads are allowed to wear down for too long the underlying metal surface of the pads will contact your brakes' metal rotors (aka drums). This situation will not only result in an unsafe situation but will require additional service and increase your brake repair cost.

Our auto mechanics stress to our customers that knowing when to have the brake system in your car or truck serviced at our Sumter ~ Columbia automotive repair shop is important to keeping your brake repair cost to a minimum. Simply being aware of the warning signs of potential brake failure can save you money on costly brake repair expenses for your car or truck.

Battery Charging Starting

Atlas Transmission is the leader in Sumter ~ Columbia for all of your  needs! Atlas Transmission is the leader in Sumter ~ Columbia for the service and repair of auto chargings systems. Our Sumter ~ Columbia auto shop staff take the time to educate our customers in knowing that the battery, starting and charging systems in their car or truck play pivotal roles in ensuring the dependable operation of your vehicle while driving in and around Sumter ~ Columbia. The car battery stores electrical energy that is then converted by the starter into the mechanical force necessary to start your engine. The alternator then serves the purpose of producing the electrical current - initially provided by the car battery - that is necessary for the vehicle's electrical needs when the engine is running. The ignition module turns the low voltage supply to the ignition coil on and off, which in turn is converted to a higher voltage that is necessary for the vehicle's ignition system to operate. The voltage is used to engage the spark plugs and create the sparks that are necessary to ignite the combined air/fuel mixture in the car engines cylinders. It is this ignition that is ultimately used to power the pistons that in turn begin the rest of the process of powering your car or truck.

There are various factors that contribute to the wear and tear of your vehicle's battery, charging, and starting systems. For example the frequent turning on and off of your automobile when running errands in Sumter ~ Columbia will cause more wear and tear than a daily commute to and from your Sumter ~ Columbia workplace. Other factors that affect the wear and tear of the battery, charging, and starting system include Sumter ~ Columbia driving and weather conditions, overall mileage, vehicle age, and various automotive components like in-vehicle entertainment systems that cause an excessive electrical draw.

The symptons you may experience that indicate possible problems with your battery, charging, and starting sytems include the dimming of headlights and interior lights, the "check engine" and/or battery light coming on, or the failure of various car or truck accessories.

Cooling System Service

Atlas Transmission is the leader in Sumter ~ Columbia for all of your  needs! Atlas Transmission is the leading auto repair specialist in Sumter ~ Columbia for the service, repair, and replacement of automotive cooling system components. The mechanic staff at our Sumter ~ Columbia automotive repair shop knows how important a role the cooling system in your car or truck plays in your engine's longevity and your vehicle's overall dependability as you drive in an around Sumter ~ Columbia. As automotive technology has advanced over the years the cooling system has progressed with new coolant formulations and more effecient radiator designs and materials. The primary function of the cooling system in your vehicle is to remove the heat from the engine and dissipate it to the outside air. This happens when the water pump circulates coolant throughout the engine system where it absorbs the heat before being returned to the radiator. When the heated coolant returns to the radiator the heat is dissipated into the air. A thermostat is used to regulate the temperture of the coolant to make sure it is consistent for maximum engine operation effeciency.

The need to replace the various components of the cooling system - such as the water pump, thermostat, and radiator - are affected by a variety of factors and Sumter ~ Columbia driving conditions. Some of these factors include your driving habits, various operating conditions, the type of vehicle and coolant being used, and of course the frequency of scheduled maintenance services like coolant changes. Possible problems with your vehicle's cooling system may include overheating, a "sweet smell", leaks, and the frequent need to add fluid.

Atlas Transmission offers a complete range of repair services for your auto cooling system needs on both foreign and domestic cars and trucks.

Fuel System

Atlas Transmission is the leader in Sumter ~ Columbia for all of your  needs!

The fuel system should be inspected immediately at our Sumter ~ Columbia shop if you think there is a problem or you smell gasoline. The fuel system delivers fuel from the fuel tank to the fuel injectors, passing the fuel through a fuel filter for cleaning in the process. There is a pressure regulator in the fuel system that controls the fuel pressure to make certain the engine performs correctly under varying speeds and load conditions. When reaching the fuel injectors a metered amount of fuel is sprayed into the engine cylinders before being ignited to in turn power your car or truck. Many modern day vehicles use a return line system that returns unused fuel to the fuel tank to be recirculated in the fuel system.

Your vehicle's fuel system's repair and service needs are determined by several factors that contribute to its wear and tear. Some of these include the quality of fuel used in your automobile, the age of your car or truck, mileage, Sumter ~ Columbia driving conditions, and maintenance history.

Filters & Fluids

Atlas Transmission is the leader in Sumter ~ Columbia for all of your  needs!

The filter system in your car or truck plays an important role in the overall longevity of your vehicle and contributes to the comfort your passengers and you experience while driving your automobile in and around the streets of Sumter ~ Columbia. The investment you have in your vehicle can be maximized by maintaining the filter system with timely filter replacments and by having the fluid levels checked regularly at our Sumter ~ Columbia shop.

There are several filters in your vehicle that help keep your car or truck in top peforming condition and ensure your passengers and you comfortable ride. The oil filter keeps containimants in your oil from entering the engine and disrupting its effecient operation. The fuel filter prevents containiments from interfering with the operation of the vehicle's carburetors or fuel injection system. Air filters are used in the automotive filter system to keep particles of dirt from damaging the engine's cylinders, pistons, and piston rings. In cars and trucks that have a fuel injection system the air filter also prevents containiments from adversely affecting the airflow sensor. Finally the cabin filter provides comfort to your vehicle's occupants by trapping and preventing pollen, dust, bacteria, and dangerous exhaust gases from entering the ventilation system.

The filters in your car or truck should be checked and replaced regularly as they are a part of your vehicle's normal wear components. The frequency by which you should have your filters and fluids checked and replaced depend on mileage, your driving habits, road conditions, and filter and vehicle types. Symptons you may experience that will indicate your filters or fluid may need to be replace will include poor gas mileage, hesitation when accelerating, and unwanted odors inside your automobile.

Belt & Hose Repair

Atlas Transmission is the leader in Sumter ~ Columbia for all of your  needs! Atlas Transmission offers complete automotive belt and hose repair services at our auto repair shop in Sumter ~ Columbia. Our team of auto mechanics understand that the belts and hoses in your vehicle play an important role for the smooth operation of the engine, air conditioning, charging, and cooling systems in your automobile. Failure to adhere to the manufacturer recommended replacement schedule can result in your car breaking down and leaving you stranded somewhere in or around the Sumter ~ Columbia area.

Some of the belts we repair and service at our Sumter ~ Columbia auto repair center that keep your vehicle operating smoothly are the serpentine belt, fan belt, drive belt (V-Belt), and timing belt. The timing belt is used to maintain the synchronization necessary for the camshaft and crankshaft to maintain the timing of your engine. Power is transmitted from the front of the engine to various vehicle accessories, including the air conditioning and charging system by the serepentine belt, V-belt, and fan belt. Coolant fluid is passed through the engine, radiator, and heater core using the upper/lower radiator hoses and heater hose.

Timing belts are not used in all automobiles. The serpentine or drive belts are sometimes used exlusively by a vehicle to provide all the power necessary for its accessories. Other vehicles use a combination of the serpentine and drive belts to power vehicle accessories.

Various Sumter ~ Columbia driving conditions can contribute to the wear and tear of your vehicle's belts and hoses. Some of these include the age and mileage of your car or truck, the tension of your belts, hose clamp failure, contaminated oil, and electrolytic corrosion. Symptons that you might be having problems with your belts or hoses include the presence of a squeaking noise from under your hood, coolant leaks, dashboard light warnings, failure of the air conditioning, and engine overheating.

HVAC Service

Atlas Transmission is the leader in Sumter ~ Columbia for all of your  needs! Atlas Transmission offers a wide range of automotive HVAC repair services at our Sumter ~ Columbia auto repair shop. The heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system in your car or truck is designed to maintain a comfortable environment in the vehicle's interior when driving in and around Sumter ~ Columbia and provides the safety feature of defrosting your windows when oprating your vehicle in difficult Sumter ~ Columbia driving conditions.

Unlike auto air conditioning, the heater and ventilation system is standard in all North American automobiles. Taking air in through a duct at the base of the windshield, the "flow through ventilation system" passes the air through a heater core before distributing it to the vehicle's interior via the dashboard vents. Vents in the rear of the auto serve to exhaust stale air from the interior when in motion. The heater core is actually a small radiator that is connected to the cooling system. The heated engine coolant warms air directed through the heater core. The temperature in the auto interior is regulated by controlling the coolant flow and/or by mixing colder air from outside the vehicle. Automatic or manual controls are then used to adjust the temperature and air flow inside the car.

The auto air conditioning system works in a very similar manner to those that cool homes and other buildings. A gas - such as freon - is placed into a system that is sealed. The gas is then heated as a result of being pressurized by a compressor. Once pressurized the heated gas then travels to the condensor where it gives off its heat to a flow of cool air and condenses to a liquid. This liquid is then transported to the receiver-dryer tank where the excess fluid is stored and any water removed. The liquid in the receiver-dryer tank then flows to the expansion valve which meters it into the air conditioning system's expansion valve inside the car. The cool, high pressure liquid then expands into a cold, low pressure gas. This evaporation process is what ultimately provides the passengers in the vehicle with a cool flow of air during the hot Sumter ~ Columbia summer months.
