Some transmission repairs require only an adjustment that can be made without removing the entire transmission. Newer model cars that are computer controlled can sometimes have faulty sensors or bad connections. Once the source of the problem part is identified it can be replaced or repaired.
Today’s transmission is much more complicated than it was in the past. There are hundreds of individual components inside transmissions. In order to properly repair your vehicle’s transmission, these components must be dismantled, cleaned and inspected for wear to provide you with an accurate assessment of your transmission’s tolerance levels. All worn and/or damaged parts are either repaired or replaced. After the parts are thoroughly inspected and repaired, they are reassembled, adjusted and tested for proper operation.
Older automobiles that are experiencing transmission problems may require adjustments to parts such as bands or throttle cables.
Repairs can also include a Reseal. If your vehicle is leaving spots on your driveway you may be leaking transmission fluid in which case a reseal job is needed. A technician will perform a lift inspection to determine where the leak is occurring and then perform the reseal job.
Repair costs depend on first what is wrong with the transmission and second what parts may be required to correct the problem. Overall 60% of all repairs are minor ones that do not require a complete overhaul of the transmission. Today’s transmissions are more sophisticated and require extensive testing to determine the reason for failure. We offer a Free performance check to determine what, if anything is wrong with the vehicle’s transmission.
