Common Transmission Repairs
If there is something wrong with the transmission, the good news is that the vast majority of the problems are minor fixes. There are a few common transmission repair issues that we address. These include:
- Sometimes, the issue is that the transmission fluid is low. We can top off the fluids and get the car back on the road.
- In other cases, there might be a faulty sensor or solenoid. We can repair these issues as well.
- Some drivers have a problem with the calibration of their transmission, such as an issue with the vale-body. We can address these problems as well.
- There could be a problem related to the wiring of the transmission. We can take a look at these electrical issues and correct them if present.
It is possible that the entire transmission could have to be replaced. We will be upfront and transparent with you if we believe this is the case. We always place the needs of our customers ahead of our own.
We understand that there are many drivers who are looking for ways to save money on their cars. That is why nobody wants to deal with the bill that goes along with a transmission repair. In order to prevent transmission repairs from arising, proper maintenance is crucial.
Preventative maintenance is important for not only your engine but your transmission as well. Along with tire rotations and oil changes, the transmission needs maintenance as well. It is important for drivers to get their transmission serviced every two years or 25,000 miles. When a transmission is properly maintained, it runs more efficiently, lasts longer, and is less likely to break down. The best way to handle a transmission repair is to avoid them. This is done through proper transmission maintenance.
