    When it comes to transmissions, your fluid level is essential. Too much or too little fluid can affect pressure, cooling abilities, and lubrication. In order to best care for your vehicle, it's important to know what to look for, so from our shop here at Lee's Auto Repair here are a few tips. 

  • A Short History of The Automatic Transmission

    Automatic transmissions are the default now - with efficiency approaching or surpassing that of manual transmissions, and automatics with 8 or 10 electronically controlled gears, it’s no surprise they’ve gained so much popularity over the past few decades. But where did it all start? Lee's Auto Repair in Independence, MO has the answers.

  • Are You Facing Shifting Issues?

    Does your car, truck, or SUV shift at the wrong moment?
