Transmission replacement is not a routine maintenance task, it’s a heavy repair a vehicle might need after years of reliable performance. It involves hoisting the engine and transmission while severing their connection and also removing the drive train, in order to remove the old and install the new transmission.
Sure, you can do it yourself. Whether you’re a Ford, Chevy, or Dodge fan you might have a 1970 Mustang, Camaro, or Charger and 5-10 years to work on it. It’s different from a daily driver when the transmission goes out it needs to replaced as quickly as possible by professionals so you can get back to work in your own car instead of a rental.
In some cases, the price of having a new transmission installed might be more than the value of the car, simply because modern vehicles have transmissions designed to last the lifetime of the car and won’t fail until that life is nearly complete. The exceptions are when a car is well maintained and the engine still runs well, the frame is still structurally sound, but the transmission has worn out its gears, been rebuilt, and failed again. Another exception is after a traffic accident in which the transmission was damaged in a way that declares it’s less expensive to replace than repair.
Symptoms of a compromised transmission vary depending on which gears are worn and how the car drives. Manual transmission allows the flexibility of doing the colloquial “Monday, Wednesday, Friday,” shift, the shifting style meaning you rev the engine enough in first gear to shift straight into third because second doesn’t work. Again from third to fifth because fourth doesn’t work very well either.
Professional mechanics do it knowing what further damage it causes, but they don’t have to pay someone else to fix their car. With an automatic transmission, it just won’t go into gear, meaning the car is stuck where it is until towed unless there is space to allow the car to roll downhill in “neutral” until physically forcing the transmission gearshift into gear it will likely never come out of.
Local mechanics have traditionally been great at fixing cars, but modern vehicles require specialized training for basic service. Chesrown Chevrolet Buick GMC in Columbus and serving the surrounding areas including Delaware, OH is the perfect place with courteous and professional technicians to fill your needs of transmission repair or replacement along with any other maintenance or repair work your car might need such as a transmission fluid exchange.
