A healthy transmission is essential to the performance of your vehicle. At AAMCO, we provide comprehensive external and internal diagnostics to get to the root of your transmission problem. Once we know your car issue, our skilled technicians will work to rebuild or repair your transmission, bringing it back to peak performance.
The first step of any transmission repair is a complete diagnosis of your transmission problem. An expert technician will thoroughly review your transmission, checking the level of your transmission, transfer case, and differential fluid, and performing a road test. This test is one of the most important parts of the transmission diagnostics process. Your technician will listen for noises, feel for abnormal vibrations, check the timing and quality of downshifts and upshifts, check drive ranges, and the initial engagements of each gear.
After the road test, your vehicle will be placed on a lift to inspect it for problems external to the transmission. Components that will be examined include:
- Shift linkage or cable
- Vacuum connections
- TV/detent cable/linkage
- Harness connections
- Ground connections
- Axles and shafts
- U-joints/CV joints
- Pan gaskets
- Wire conditions
