Your car’s transmission is the vehicle’s most complicated and least understood major component. As vehicles have begun incorporating more sophisticated machinery, automatic transmission repair has become more complicated. Automatic transmissions typically include a combination of hydraulics and computer-controlled components, though some also include a differential or final drive. It’s important for the technician working on your vehicle to thoroughly understand how the system works, which is why all National Transmission technicians are expertly trained.
Overall, manual transmissions are much more simple than automatic transmissions. Automatic transmissions have hundreds of mechanical, hydraulic, and electronic parts that must work together to shift gears smoothly, while manual transmissions are mostly mechanical gears that rely on you as the driver to shift. This means that there are fewer elements of a manual transmission to break down, but that doesn’t mean that your vehicle won’t need a repair at some point.
Sometimes clutch issues have nothing to do with the main components of your clutch. While it can be tempting to jump to clutch repair and replacement, it’s important to properly evaluate your clutch system to determine what the actual problem is.
Just because your vehicle is showing warning signs of trouble doesn’t mean you’re looking at a big expensive repair. Sometimes the issue is minor and can be fixed quickly and easily without removal of transmission/transaxle assembly.
