A car transmission is a metal box that sits between the engine and the drive wheels. It contains gears that transfer power from the engine to the wheels. The transmission also has a clutch that allows the driver to change gears. There are two types of transmissions: manual and automatic.
Manual and Automatic Transmission System
A manual transmission uses a clutch to connect and disconnect the engine from the drive wheels. The driver must manually shift gears to change the speed of the vehicle. Automatic transmissions use a series of hydraulic pumps and valves to automatically shift gears based on the speed of the vehicle.
Warning Signs Your Car Needs Transmission Replacement or Repair Service
There are a few warning signs that transmission repair or replacement may be needed. If you notice any of the following, it’s important to bring your vehicle to an experienced mechanic as soon as possible=
- The transmission is slipping out of gear or refusing to go into gear
- The engine revs but the vehicle don’t move, or the vehicle moves very slowly
- There’s a grinding noise when shifting gears
- The transmission fluid is leaking
- The “check engine” light is on
3 Common Reasons for Transmission Problems
There are a few common issues that can occur with both automatic and manual transmission systems. These include:
Worn or Damaged Gears
Gears can become worn down over time from use, or they can be damaged by debris. This can cause the transmission to slip out of gear or refuse to go into gear.
Leaking or Dirty Transmission Fluid
A transmission fluid leak can cause the transmission to slip or not work properly. Similarly, dirty transmission fluid can cause the gears to grind or not engage properly.
A clogged filter can prevent the transmission fluid from flowing properly, causing the transmission to slip or not engage properly.
How to Know Whether to have Transmission Rebuild, Repaired, or Replace
If your transmission is having problems, the first step is to have it diagnosed by a professional. Once the problem has been diagnosed, your mechanic will be able to recommend whether transmission repair or replacement is the best option.
During transmission repairs, the mechanic will disassemble the transmission and inspect all of the parts. If any of the parts can be fixed or replaced, the mechanic will do so. If the damage is too severe, then the transmission will need to be rebuilt.
When rebuilding a transmission, the mechanic will completely disassemble the transmission and inspect all of the parts. Any parts that are damaged will be replaced. In some cases, new parts may be needed. Once the rebuilding process is complete, the remanufactured transmission will be tested to make sure it’s working properly.
In some cases, the best option may be to replace the transmission entirely. This is usually necessary when the transmission is severely damaged or when it’s not possible to rebuild it.
