How Is Transmission Repair Different From Other Automotive Repairs?

How Is Transmission Repair Different from Other Automotive Repairs?

Mister Transmission specializes in servicing transmissions because they’re so different from other vehicle components, but how different is transmission repair?

Transmission Repairs Are Often Complex Because Transmissions Are Complex.

There are basic repairs like replacing a flat tire or a burnt out headlight. But even something like muffler repair pales in comparison to transmission repair. Only the engine is as complex as the transmission.

In Terms Of Importance, Transmission Fluid Is Rivaled Only By Engine Oil.

Transmission fluid is used in all automatic transmissions and in some manual transmissions (other manual transmissions use a similar liquid known as “transmission oil”). This fluid lubricates and cools transmissions, similIn Terms Of Importance, Transmission Fluid Is Rivaled Only By Engine to how motor oil helps internal combustion engines. Both need to be checked, topped up, and changed periodically. An insufficient level or quality of transmission fluid can cause a number of problems.

It’s best practice to check your transmission fluid levels monthly. If your level is low, top it up. You should also check the fluid itself. Good transmission fluid is largely clear with a reddish hue. Opaque or foul-smelling transmission fluid is indicative of something wrong within your transmission. If you have to top up your fluid every month, you likely have a leak.

Re-Seal Jobs Are Fairly Common Transmission Repairs.

If you’re topping up your transmission fluid too often or if you notice patches of fluid underneath your vehicle, you need a re-seal repair. If the area of the leak can easily be spotted while the transmission remains in the vehicle, then a re-seal job is a comparatively easy and inexpensive repair. However, if the leak is hard to locate, or if the entire transmission must be re-sealed, then it has to be removed from the vehicle and this is a much more laborious, complex, and therefore expensive, process.

Transmissions Are Complicated Because They’re Not Just One Part.

Once again, the best parallel for the transmission is the engine. While your brake line and other auto parts consists of multiple components, the engine and the transmission stand apart as impressively complex pieces of machinery. A transmission is comprised of various individual parts, all of which could need to be replaced.

Friction surfaces such as bands and clutch plates need to be replaced the most often. Torque converters are also a common problem part. Anything that can be replaced with the transmission in-car is relatively simple, but again, if the transmission needs to be removed from the chassis, it’s a much bigger task. While comparatively rare, thoroughly damaged transmissions may need a complete transmission overhaul.

I cannot thank Jason and the mister transmission team enough for the transmission work they did on my vehicle, after a lot of running around between different shops trying to get answers and get work done on my vehicle Jason and his team took on my vehicle without a hiccup. The process was at smooth as it gets, parts were easily accessible for my vehicle, they had it on Monday and it was done Tuesday just like he said it would be. He was communicative throughout the process, there were no hidden surprises. As soon as I drove my vehicle off the lot I could feel the difference- it was driving the way I knew it should be ! I couldn’t be happier. I am incredibly grateful and appreciative of their time and work. Highly recommend this team and location to anyone needing work done.
