The cost to repair or overhaul your transmission will depend on the condition of your transmission and what type of vehicle you drive. To determine the condition we must first perform our diagnostic pre-check, which includes a full road test and external examination. Most late model vehicles are electronically controlled and it’s possible that the [...]
The transmission fluid serves to cool and lubricate. With an automatic transmision, the fluid transfers power, and provides necessary pressure to the intenal parts of the transmission. All of these functions are affected when the transmission fluid is leaking and is now low from that leak.
A transmission leak is not something to ignore. The transmission fluid serves to cool and lubricate. With an automatic transmision, the fluid transfers power, and provides necessary pressure to the internal parts of the transmission. All of these functions are affected when the transmission fluid is leaking and is now low from that leak. As [...]
The service includes replacing the filter or cleaning the screen, replacing the transmission fluid, performing a final leak-check, and performing a road test.
If you continue to replenish your fluid, you can continue to drive, but transmissions are designed to work normally until the fluid loss is approximately a quart or more. After loss of a quart the transmission wil begin showing abnormal operating symptoms.
Most of the time it’s due to design flaws. These are failures that were not caused by abuse, misuse, lack of maintenance, or excessive mileage. A design flaw is characterized by a repeated failure in a specific area in any one type of transmission. Many products are available from the manufacturer and in the aftermarket [...]
No although, it is possible that gross overfilling can cause the fluid to be subjected to moving parts and become aerated which could cause abnormal operation. You may also notice leaks that ordinarily would not occur. The transmission case is vented preventing pressure buildup in normally un-pressurized areas. Severe overfilling can raise the fluid level [...]
To give you an accurate diagnostic we need to see your vehicle. Many repairs can be corrected with minor adjustments or repair. However, small transmission problems need to be corrected before they grow into a major problem.
