Symptoms of a dirty transmission
- Rough Shifting Abrupt or hard shifting between gears is the most common sign of transmission problems.
- Fluid Dark or dirty transmission fluid is another key to potential transmission problems, but it doesn’t necessarily signal imminent doom.
- Leaks Wet spots and puddles beneath your vehicle deserve immediate attention. Running your vehicle with low or no transmission fluid is a sure way to end up with a new transmission
- Heavy knocking sound or grinding when shifting gears is another indication of problems.
- Slippage “Slippage” is when the engine speeds up but the vehicle doesn’t respond accordingly. It is a sign of a failing transmission.
- Missed Shifts A delayed or missing response when shifting gears is a sure sign that your transmission has failed or is failing.
Over 90% of all Automatic Transmission failures are due to overheating and fluid contamination.
Your transmission needs a complete flush and fluid change for optimum performance.
My Auto Tech transmission service:
- Removes 95% of the used contaminated fluid.
- No more rough or hard shifting problems
My Auto Tech’s transmission service equipment carries multiple patents and is approved by major motor vehicle manufacturers.
Our technicians are highly skilled in computer analysis...
Today’s cars are complex machines. More like spacecraft, high skill levels and specific expertise are required to repair and maintain late model vehicles. Expert knowledge of mechanical and electronic systems is mandatory. Mechanics must be versed in electronic computer control systems as much as mechanical systems.
At My Auto Tech Manurewa, South Auckland, our automotive mechanic technicians maintain this high level of skill.
Electronic computer diagnostics
We are equipped with the latest electronic and mechanical service tools required to read and analyze data in order to locate the source of problems which would otherwise be even more difficult to find.
Locating the source of the problem is the first step in the repair. Once a fault is verified, the problem can be repaired or the part replaced.
Latest technical information
Up-to-date technical information is essential in properly testing electronic devices. The specifications of these electronic devices, such as sensors and actuators, are needed to accurately measure electrical signals to and from each unit. Only through proper measurement can we determine whether a unit is doing its job or causing problems.

Tyre supply and wheel service requirements
My Auto Tech offer a wide selection of tyres, both new and used, available in all sizes and needs. We also offer wheel balancing, to improve the quality of your drive.
A flat tyre normally occurs when something has pierced the tyre. If the damage is minor, it can usually be repaired. In cases where the sidewall or shoulder of the tyre is damaged, the tyre will need to be replaced.
Make sure your vehicle is in line with a wheel alignment from My Auto Tech. If your vehicle feels unstable, a proper wheel alignment can improve driver safety, create a smoother ride and increase fuel efficiency.
Tyre alignment and out-of-balance warning signs
- Your vehicle pulls to right or left when driving
- Your steering wheel is not straight while driving on a level road
- There is vibration in the steering wheel or through your seat*
- Your tires are wearing unevenly or squeal on turns
- Your steering feels unstable
*An out-of-balance tyre and wheel will typically create a vibration or shake that becomes progressively worse as the vehicle’s speed increases. The speed at which the vibration first becomes apparent will vary depending on the size and weight of the tyres and wheels, the size and weight of the vehicle, the sensitivity of the steering and suspension, and the amount of imbalance. The vibration or shake usually starts at 70 to 80 km/h and increases in intensity as the speed increases.
Minor to major, whatever the issue, we can help
Regardless of your odometer reading, My Auto Tech can help keep your engine in original-performance condition. We perform all internal engine repairs from head gaskets and valve jobs to complete engine replacements.
Common symptoms of engine issues
A light on your dashboard is an early indicator of a potential engine problem. It’s best to get a diagnostic test from My Auto Tech as soon as the light comes on, even if you don’t have any obvious engine symptoms. Bring your vehicle to My Auto Tech as soon as possible if you’re experiencing any of the following:
- Engine runs rough while idling
- Engine pings or knocks, and the sound gets worse on acceleration
- Engine makes clicking, rattling or hammering noises
- Vehicle uses a lot more gas than it used to
- Vehicle doesn’t accelerate normally
- Dark exhaust smoke or exhaust is ‘spitting’
- Uses excessive water or oil
What’s making that sound?
Unusual sounds from the engine can be caused by any number of issues, from simple to complex, including:
- Loose, worn or broken engine parts
- Fuel or oil has entered into the air charge of the cylinders
- Malfunctioning valves or timing parts
Even if you feel something’s not quite right with your engine, suspension or steering but you’re not sure how to explain it, give My Auto Tech a call. Our technicians will ask you some questions and when you bring it in, give it a test drive to help us diagnose any issues.
