Can A Transmission Be Repaired?

Can A Transmission Be Repaired?

Transmission repair is a tricky business. That is because transmissions themselves are extremely complicated. There is a lot that can go wrong with a transmission. When can it be repaired and when can it not?

Transmissions Are Complicated. When Something Goes Wrong, It’s Not Always Clear What. This Makes Transmission Repair A Complicated Task.

When there’s something wrong with your tire, there’s something wrong with your tire. When there’s something wrong with your muffler, there’s something wrong with your muffler. When there’s something wrong with your windshield, there’s something wrong with your windshield. But when there’s something wrong with your transmission, there’s something wrong with one or more of any number of different parts.

Maybe your transmission fluid isn’t doing the job properly. Maybe you have a defective solenoid pack. Maybe your transmission bands have worn down from too much friction. Maybe there’s a problem with your on-board computer. Maybe your clutch pack is fried. For every transmission problem, there’s a transmission repair . . . maybe.

Because Transmissions Are So Complex, The Problems Can Incur Are Varied And Pose Different Challenges.

The easiest transmission repair is to top up your transmission fluid levels. Low transmission fluid can cause or exacerbate any number of transmission problems. To avoid big repairs in the future, regularly check your transmission fluid. Sometimes the transmission fluid needs to be flushed out. Some models of transmission allow you to do this yourself at home, but it’s tricky. Other models require professional expertise and equipment, but for transmission techs, a fluid service is a comparatively simple procedure.

If something in your transmission needs to be replaced, you better hope it’s a part that’s accessible while the transmission still sits within the body of the vehicle. Not all parts are accessible like this. If the transmission techs suspect that the problem is with an inaccessible part or that they cannot determine the cause of the problem, then the transmission needs to be removed from the chassis. Now we’re getting into big transmission repairs. Worse still are transmission overhauls and full-on replacements. An overhaul is usually the preferable option, but you want to avoid it getting this far, if possible.

Most Transmission Problems Can Be Repaired. Nonetheless, An Ounce Of Prevention Is Worth A Pound Of Cure.

Don’t anger your future self. Don’t drive around with what you suspect is a bad transmission. Late for work? Have a lot on your mind? Not good excuses for putting off necessary transmission repairs? Is money tight? That’s a problem, but transmission repairs only ever increase in price the longer you delay them.
