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.

Frank Matchett - You fit our vehich

Frank Matchett - You fit our vehichle (Toyota Celica) into the Coquitlam Shop so quickly on Monday, June 29th. I am from Kamloops. This was during Canada Day week too. You found a transmission on Vancouver Island and even offered to pick it up yourself if possible. You personally dropped me off and picked me up at the location I was staying at on Port Moody. I so appreciated that kindness. You went above and beyond and kept me, reassured that I would be home on Thursday. My husband was not with me yet you communicated the updates with both him & myself (he was in Kamloops.) You were wonderful with your communication, swiftness in finding the part, I\'m grateful that you fit my car in during this holiday week & your kindness to drop me off & pick me up was so appreciated. So thankful for all that you did Frank Matchett. Sincerely - Mrs. K Devlin
