Automatic Transmission Repair

Listening to a repair shop mechanic tell you that you have a transmission problem is enough to make you cringe, considering that rebuilding or replacing a transmission is very costly. However, not every transmission problem requires rebuilding or replacement. There are a number of transmission problems that can be fixed with a minor repair.

A basic transmission repair is performed when only certain failed component of the transmission is repaired or replaced. Tansmission repairs in some cases require only an adjustment to be made without removing the transmission. On late model vehicles with computer controlls sometimes develop bad connections due to vibration or corrision.

Transmission repair means that if a sensor, solenoid fails or input shaft breaks, that part can be replaced without the need to rebuild the whole transmission. Repairs can be as simple as fixing a leak within the components. A leak would just lead to the necessity of having the external seals replaced if the experts find that all the other parts of the transmission are working properly. It’s important to remember, however, that shops making repairs repairs of this nature are likely to only warranty the parts that is being replaced. The only negative aspect related to this is the fact that you could spend money on having a component of the transmission repaired only to have an unrelated part fail later. Getting a transmission repaired is a great way to save money, but there will always be a risk involved.
