How Do You Fix Transmission Problems

We often only think about our vehicles when something goes wrong with them. Perhaps it does not reflect too well on us that we only consider these highly complex and intricate achievements of modern technology when something is amiss, but that is the way we are. While many of us enjoy driving our automobiles, more often than not, we see our cars as tools. Something to help us get from point A to point B. So when you’re trying to get from home to work or from work to a family engagement, and your transmission is experiencing a problem, you, naturally, get quite annoyed. But let us stop and think for a moment about the transmission and how do you even fix transmission problems?

Masterful Machinery

As mentioned above, automobiles are something of a modern marvel of technology. So too is this true of the transmission. The transmission consists of a variety of different parts itself. That is why transmission repair can be such a complicated process. There any number of different parts of the transmission that can be having problems, and the way to fix one of them is different from the way to fix another.

Minor Repairs

Many transmission problems can be rectified with relatively minor adjustments or in-car repairs. Most minor repairs do not require the removal of the transmission from the vehicle. With a computer-controlled transmission, if you are experiencing problems shifting properly, it’s usually the result of the computer sending incorrect signals due to a faulty sensor or perhaps the transmission is not reacting to the command because of a bad connection or defective solenoid pack.

In non-computer controlled transmissions that are too early or too late, an adjustment to the throttle cable will often fix the problem. In a vehicle with a modulator, though, it is important to ensure there are no vacuum leaks and that the engine is running at peak efficiency.

If your transmission has a problem of leaking fluid, it likely will require a reseal job. To check a transmission for leaks, we need to put your vehicle on a lift so we can see underneath it to look for signs of leaks. If we can’t find a leak in any of the external seals or gaskets and the transmission otherwise performs well, it is often the best course of action to have the transmission resealed. The majority of external seals can be replaced while the transmission is still in the car, except the front seal. If the front seal requires replacing, the transmission must be removed from the vehicle.

Major Transmission Problems

Major transmission problems might require a complete overhaul. A complete overhaul requires the removal and disassembly of the entire transmission. This is a major transmission repair. We will inspect every part for wear and damage and then clean them all in a special cleaning solution or replace them with another part depending on its condition. Again, it should be stressed that this would be for a major transmission problem or a transmission problem with an unknown cause. If the transmission’s problem is caused by an easily accessible part, we can merely replace that specific part.

This is the second time I've visited Mr. Transmission. I originally contacted the location at jane and lawrence who advised they were swamped but put me in touch with someone at the Queensway location. Just as the previous experience, I have nothing but positive things to say. I would greatly recommend this location to anyone in need of automotive repairs.

Very impressed by Cecil and his crew. Took my 2006 Jeep Cherokee in for fuel injector issues and had it running like a dream in no time. Finding a good mechanic that you can trust and won't take you to the cleaners is important to me. I'll get my jeep done here from now on. Shout out to Fab for taking care of my baby.
