Automatic Transmission Repair



When an automatic transmission simply fails, there is little question as to what needs to be done. On the other hand, if an automatic transmission fails to shift smoothly under acceleration and is instead making noises, creating vibration, or showing signs of altered shift behavior, a check of the transmission fluid and filter are in order. Changing the fluid and filter, which may be clogged, may fix a number of symptoms that seem like a big problem. At the same time, a check for leaks should also be conducted. Repairs for automatic transmissions include resealing (to stop leaks), replacing accessible parts such as controls and electrical components, or a complete overhaul or replacement.
