    There are many parts and systems outside of the car’s transmission that is equally as important as the parts and systems inside the transmission. Without them, the transmission won’t do much. There’s no way to transfer power from the engine to the shafts, disengage it to shift the gears, or power the differential without them. Just in case you need us, at Lee's Brake, Muffler, & Tire Service in Sandersville, GA, we can help keep your transmission in top shape, but here’s what you need to know.

    When driving around town, your vehicle's engine needs clean air to burn the fuel – and it needs a lot. In fact, a typical vehicle needs about 216,000 gallons of air for every tank of gas. All that air passes through a filter that catches the dust and dirt. Eventually, the filter gets completely full, and because the filter can only hold so much, dirt starts getting through. At Lee's Brake, Muffler, & Tire Service in Sandersville, we want to help you get the best air quality in your vehicle, but first, we want to explain the process of where this dirty air is going.
