classic car

Are you considering upgrading to a better transmission on your classic? Dempsey's Service Center, Inc. in Newark, DE can help.  If you drive something old, there’s a good chance it has fewer gears than you’d like. With all the 6 and 8 speed transmissions on the road today, it’s hard to imagine that just a few decades ago we were getting by with just 2 or 3 gears. These days, there are some simple swap options - here are some things for you to consider.

You know how often to change your engine oil; but what about the gear oil in your standard shift transmission? Here’s a short guide, from Dempsey's Service Center, Inc. in Newark.  Unless you’re lucky enough to own a car with a transmission dipstick, inspecting the gear oil in a manual transmission is a lot more inconvenient than doing so with an automatic, or checking your engine oil. The car must be jacked up, supported, and the oil checked from underneath. As a result, you may just want to change it when the time is right. But how do you know when that time comes?
