Regular visits to a transmission shop are crucial to the long term viability of your vehicle. At first glance, you might think it is odd that there are entire shops dedicated to only one component of a vehicle. But when you think about it – the transmission is the most complex part of your vehicle, especially with the evolution of transmission technology used in today’s vehicles.
Far from being just one component, the transmission is actually a collection of different parts working in unison to make your automobile go. Your transmission is what transfers power from your engine to your wheels. Without a working transmission, you’re not going anywhere. And because there are so many different parts within the transmission, it needs special attention. Transmission shops not only fix broken transmissions, but they can also service and maintain those transmissions, ensuring years of smooth sailing…well, actually driving, but you get the point. Here are four services you can receive at a transmission shop.
Just as you see your doctor for regular check-ups, even when you don’t feel that anything is wrong, it’s important to bring your vehicle in regularly just to make sure everything is working right with your transmission.

Transmissions have changed a lot over the years. The technology and mechanics involved in a transmission has advanced a lot over the years and transmission shops have had to keep up with these advances. Repairing transmissions canbean incredibly technical process and it is best left to technicians who specialize in working with transmissions.
Sometimes all that is needed is a minor adjustment or an in-car repair. The repair could be a computerized one or something physical, like an adjustment to the throttle cable. For transmission fluid leaks, re-seal jobs are required. And sometimes parts will need to be replaced. If the part is accessible, it can be replaced with the vehicle intact. But sometimes the problem can be so hidden that the entire transmission needs to be disassembled and inspected. This is known as complete overhaul.
Some specialty vehicles require high performance transmissions. Such vehicles include muscle cars, custom rods, sport tuners, and race vehicles. You cannot get these high performance transmissions worked on at any old auto body shop. You need a transmission shop.
Good transmission shops will have access to cutting edge diagnostic equipment, allowing them to figure out just what’s going on inside your transmission. Today’s vehicles come equipped with complex computer systems. Transmission shops have technology that can interface with your automobile’s on-board computer systems to discover your specific transmission problems. By “talking” to your vehicle’s computer, the technician can access a code that indicates where the problem lies. After this, the vehicle is taken for a test drive to monitor the vehicle’s behaviour in real-time.
