OBD-II Codes: What Auto Mechanics Know
As you see, OBD-II codes are fairly technical. An average person would have to figure out what they mean. Like all other fields, transmission repair has its own jargon. Even if someone could know what the codes mean, they most likely would not have the tools to fix something as complex as a transmission.
Transmission Repair and Diagnostics
That’s where auto mechanics come in. Using diagnostic tools, they can quickly figure out what the problem is with the transmission and prescribe a fix for it. So know that transmissions are tough, and call your transmission service professionals.
