It’s hard to describe just how important hydraulic hoses are to your vehicle’s operation. These components are so integral to your engine’s operation that we’ve set up a facility in the Winston-Salem, North Carolina area designed to tackle exactly these problems. Since these parts are one of the first to wear out, we at L&R Transmissions feel you should know why you might need hydraulic hose repair (transmission repair) in the first place. Here’s a quick look at how one of the most important parts of your car, truck, or 4X4 is made!
Many people think that a hose has a similar construction to the average straw. In reality, a lot more has to go into these tubes of rubber if they are going to handle the intense pressures of a running engine! Each hose is made up of three main layers, working together to help your vehicle run:
When all three of these components are working properly, hoses can stay pressurized keeping everything running smoothly.
Getting a transmission to work with faulty hoses is like trying to ride a bike without a chain. It’s important to get problems taken care of before a leak occurs, which can cause even more issues with other parts of your vehicle. If you see any wear on them, such as a cracking outer layer, contact us to make an appointment for hydraulic hose repair. You can count on L&R Transmissions’ expert staff to help you choose the right component and get your car, truck, or 4X4 back to doing what it does best!
