How Long do Transmission Repairs Usually Take

Many of us have a habit of putting off repairs or maintenance to our automobiles. And it’s a bad habit. But it is understandable; we lead busy lives, our cars are not usually at the forefront of our minds. Until something goes wrong with them. Then they can become the banes of our existence. We try to find workarounds or put things off. But we really shouldn’t. Driving with an improperly functioning vehicle can be downright dangerous. But it can be hard to find the time. And you don’t want to be left without a vehicle for a prolonged period. But what if something is amiss with your transmission? How long do transmission repairs usually take?

Transmissions

Transmissions are intricate and complex machines. Therefore, transmission repair can be quite tricky. With the relatively recent increased computerization of transmissions, transmission performance has improved across all makes and models. However, it comes with a down side. These new transmissions require highly technical work. You need skilled, experienced, and knowledgeable technicians to get your transmission repaired right. But it must take a long time, right?

Not As Long As You Might Think

Yes, it’s true, transmission repair has become a more complex and intricate affair in recent years, but as with everything else in life, we must adapt. The best technicians evolve with the machinery and so do have we at Mister Transmission. We know that having to have your transmission repaired can put your life on hold. A lot of people rely on their cars for work, family obligations, and everything else, so if you need your transmission repaired, we will do our best to get the job done right and as quickly as possible.

Most minor repairs are relatively simple. We can do them without having to remove the transmission from the vehicle. For computer controlled transmissions, the most common problems affecting shifting are due to the computer sending incorrect signals due to a faulty sensor. If a non-computer controlled transmission is shifting too early or too late, it may require an adjustment to the throttle cable. Overall, these types of repairs are generally not too involved and can be done without interrupting your day too much.

More Involved Transmission Repairs

There are other transmission repairs too that, like most shifting issues, can be remedied without too much of a headache. Reseal jobs are important if you notice blobs of red oil underneath your parked car. You want to keep your transmission sealed up properly, so a reseal might be required (Replacing accessible parts is also a common type of transmission repair that we can in relatively short order in most cases).

But there are, of course, instances, when transmission repair can take a great deal longer. For example, complete overhauls, also known as rebuilding transmissions. These jobs tend to take longer because they require that we remove the transmission from the vehicle and disassemble it. We will examine every part for wear and tear and replace those parts that need it, whether it be a torque converter or the bands and clutches.

But ultimately, the length of a transmission repair will vary from case to case (as will the cost). If you’ll like to get a better idea of our process here at Mister Transmission or to book an appointment for your transmission repair, please do not hesitate to contact us.

David Thompson
After a catastrophic failure of the CVT in my 2013 Subaru Outback I was glad to find such Professionals. Chris, Janna and the Technicians went above and beyond to get my vehicle back in service. Due to Covid-19 restrictions I had to send the Outback to Moncton on a flat deck. All the time it was there I was kept up to date on their every move and diagnoses. From the first Phone Call until I picked it up there was no doubt "This was the right place". Thanks again Mister Transmission !!!
