The transmission is one of the most expensive replacement parts there is for your vehicle. If you do not want to spend the money for a brand new transmission, you can go with the option of a transmission rebuild. A transmission rebuild includes the removal of the vehicle’s transmission. The transmission is then inspected over for any damage or issues. Then the damaged or worn transmission parts are replaced and the transmission is placed back into your vehicle.
A transmission is an intricate mechanical system for your vehicle that is made up of various gears, bands, pumps, and rotors. These all work together to power your vehicle’s transmission the most efficient way possible. A transmission rebuild is the removal, inspection, and replacement of any damaged transmission parts. With a rebuild, all the main parts of the transmission are carefully inspected to see what condition they are in. Any part that is severely worn or damaged beyond repair is replaced with either a brand new part or a refurbished part. After the rebuild, the transmission is restored to its peak operating function and efficiency without having to replace every single part of the transmission.
There are several signs that can help you determine if there is an issue with your transmission. One of the signs is the smell of burning transmission fluid. This can indicate that your transmission is overheating. The transmission fluid helps to keep the transmission’s parts moving properly by lubricating them. Also, if you notice the transmission fluid is leaking, you should have it inspected as soon as possible incase something is loose under the hood.
The check engine light can also illuminate if there is an issue with the transmission. While it can come on for a variety of other reasons, you should make sure to bring it in as soon as possible so we can determine what the issue might be. There can also be noises that your vehicle makes if there are issues with the transmission. This is especially serious if the vehicle is in neutral. Noises can be whining, humming, buzzing, clunking, or grinding when your vehicle is running. These can also occur when your car shifts.
No matter if you have an automatic or manual transmission, if your vehicle hesitates or refuses to shift into gear, this can be a sure sign something is wrong. With a manual transmission, you can notice the problem that after shifting into gear, the engine will rev up but the vehicle will not be moving as quickly as the engine is running.
