Automatic Transmission Repair in Mesa

While clutch repair does happen, automatic transmissions are way more complicated.  The more complex a system is, the more potential problems it can have if you don’t take care of it.  And by “take care of it,” we mean to take it to a transmission repair shop.  Do not try to fix it yourself.

Oh we know what you’re thinking.  You read up on transmission repair, and you are aching to try that novelty wrench you bought for only $19.95, however, if you try to fix your transmission yourself, you could find yourself with a very expensive piece of sculpture in your garage or driveway that used to be your car.

The average automatic transmission has over 1,000 parts, mostly gears, but still.  Do you know the best way to unfasten a torque converter?  Not to mention the fact, that you’re going to need between $10,000 and $20,000 for the all the equipment necessary to fix a transmission.

According to David Tracy at Jalopnik: “The sheer number of moving parts makes them very difficult to comprehend. LYour engine connects to your transmission at a place called a bell housing. The bell housing contains a torque converter for automatic transmission-equipped vehicles as opposed to a clutch on manual vehicles. The torque converter is a fluid coupling whose job it is to connect your engine to your transmission and thus to your driven wheels. The transmission contains planetary gearsets which are in charge of providing different gear ratios.”  [READ SOURCE]

There’s more, but summing up, a transmission is an incredibly complex and sophisticated component, what with the gearsets, computer modules, in addition to tubes and many different connection points.  And like all complex things, a simple problem can make it lock up almost immediately.

While some transmission repairs like changing the transmission fluid are relatively simple, there is still a bit of a learning curve involved.

Look.  You need your car, right?  You’ve invested a lot of money in buying it, right?  So why not take care of it the right way.  Take it to a transmission repair shop in Mesa.
