Transmission Repair in Mesa: Pay Attention to Your Car’s Symptoms
As we covered previously, there are a few things to watch out for regarding your transmission service. If you apply the following tips and observations, you will be better able to spot a transmission repair before it gets too costly and time-consuming:
Watch for leaks or stains under where the vehicle is parked Be alert to different noises, or differences in shift behavior (in manual and automatic transmissions) Be Alert to Vibrations, check fluid for unusual color or odor.
Basic Transmission Service Vs Full Service Transmission Repair
Any basic automotive service inspection will first check to see if the transmission fluid is refilled to the full level with fresh, clean transmission fluid. From there, any external adjustments are made as necessary depending on the make and model of your vehicle and whether or not it has a manual or automatic transmission which needs service. Transmission repairs maybe time-consuming, but it is truly worth the time spent on preventive maintenance versus having to get an entire transmission rebuild or replacement. Nobody wants that type of headache from what could be a simple transmission service.
According to The Automatic Transmission Rebuilder’s Association website:
“no member or person or firm shall represent that any reprocessed automatic transmission has been “rebuilt, according to ATRA specifications:, unless such transmission has been reprocessed in the following manner; and members further agree to extend nationwide, inter-shop warranty coverage only on such transmissions as have been reprocessed in the following manner:
All internal and external parts shall be dismantled and thoroughly cleaned and inspected, including the case and bell housing.
The following parts shall be replaced with new, each time; all lined friction clutch plates; all gaskets and rubber parts; metal sealing rings as are used in rotating applications; disposable type filters.
All bands as are used in dynamic applications shall be replaced with new or re-lined bands, each time.
The valve body shall be thoroughly cleaned and inspected; all dirt and varnish and foreign substances removed; all non-serviceable parts replaced, and new gaskets installed where applicable.
The torque converter shall be considered to be a part of the transmission; and any torque converter which is installed along with a rebuilt transmission shall be internally cleaned and inspected for wear; externally checked for leaks, cracks, weld failure and hub wear; and starter ring gear wear, where applicable. Any converter which is judged as not capable of delivering new converter performance and life shall be replaced with a new or rebuilt converter. Any converter which is installed along with a rebuilt transmission main body shall be guaranteed by the member along with the rest of the transmission.” VIEW SOURCE
