About Your Technician
Sparklight's service technician is a person, who removes, completely disassembles, checks, replaces worn and broken parts or overhauls completely any automotive transmission.
Your trusted Technician is able to diagnose problems through visual inspection, road tests or with the assistance of electronic technology. Advances in technology are increasing the complexity and reliability of newer vehicles. This is expected to continue to increase the skill requirements of technicians and reduce the average number of repairs on each vehicle.
Diagnosing mechanical problems is increasingly being done with the assistance of electronic and computer-based equipment rather than relying entirely on the visual observations. Education and on-going training are key to the success of Sparklight Gearboxes. Your Technician’s continuous education ensures that you obtain an accurate diagnosis.
