Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Should I repair my own transmission?

A: Adding transmission fluid is one repair that can be performed in a DIY fashion. If a vehicle owner is experienced in auto repair, more extensive repairs can possibly be completed without the help of a professional. However, it's always best to consult with a mechanic before attempting to replace or repair a transmission when the exact issues are unclear.

Q: How do you repair a slipping transmission?

A: Slipping transmissions can often be repaired by resealing the entire system. Transmissions can also experience slipping due to damaged or worn-out transmission bands. This issue can be repaired with transmission band replacement.

Q: How do you repair an automatic transmission?

A: Specific repair procedures for an automatic transmission can vary based on the parts that are damaged or failing. Leaks can be repaired by replacing fluids, while resealing the transmission can help prevent and repair slippage problems.
