Do you need transmission service or repair?
The transmission in your car is used when you shift gears. Automatic transmission services are very complicated and require our technicians to use specialized tools and diagnostic equipment. We are able to properly diagnose your transmission issues.
Should I Repair or Replace My Transmission?
We often receive quotes for estimates at Glenwood Aliso Creek Auto Repair because people are told at other places that they need a brand new transmission. After we look at a vehicle, we know that only a repair is needed, not a replacement. This saves you money.
More often than not, the repair is small. The repair might just be an electrical connection cable, loose fuse, or an outside detector. These are all minor issues that are simple to resolve.
If you were to go with a brand new transmission when only a repair is needed, then you would have spent thousands without it being necessary. Again, we are here to look out for you.
How Do I Know When My Transmission Is About To Go Bad?
If you keep an eye on your transmission, then you might be able to just get a repair rather than a more costly replacement.
Here is what to look out for:
- Burning smell
- Fluid leak under parked car
- Gears slip
- Hard to shift your car into gear
- No response after shiting your car into gear
- See if engine light is on
Transmission Issues Are Not Always Expensive
People sometimes think that all transmission-related issues are expensive to resolve. That is not always the case. With technological advances and keeping an eye on your car, you would be surprised.
Here is a list of low-cost transmission repairs:
- Bad Linkage/Cables
- Hard/soft shifting, or no shifting at all
- Bad/Old Fluid
- Just flushing out the old transmission fluid and replacing it might be good enough. This might take care of problems like slipping, soft shifting and strange behavior
- Bad Solenoid
- This can affect individual gears, or a group of them. A group of gears like 1st and 3rd, or 1st through 4th could be affected. These are simple to replace if they are located outside the transmission.
- Computer Issues
- Sometimes computer issues can cause transmission issues
- Fluid Leak/Low Fluid
- There could be a leak that needs to be patched, might just be a gasket
- Vacuum Line Break
- Your transmission might not shift if this occurs. The engine and transmission are reliant on the vacuum for proper system functioning. These lines are cheap and are not much to fix.
