Transmission performance is checked in three ways.
Computer Diagnostics –
This service is performed if the performance check indicated that a problem exists with your transmission/transmission related component and/or drive train. During this service, diagnostic equipment is attached to your vehicle to view any computer codes. Should trouble codes appear, they are recorded, as well as any transmission data that shows to be out of range. These readings help to determine whether there is an internal or external transmission problem.
External Adjustment Check
When the results of your performance check show that an accessible external transmission related component is damaged, the repair and/or replacement occurs to the damaged piece while the transmission remains in place.
Internal Inspection and Repair
When the results of your performance check show that there is an internal problem with your transmission, we recommend further investigation with an internal inspection of your transmission. This inspection consists of the removal of your transmission and disassembly of the unit in order to view all internal parts.During this inspection, all parts will be examined for wear and damage. When the inspection is completed, one of our technicians will provide you with a report of those items that are in need of either repair or replacement, along with an estimate for those services.
If you choose to have our shop repair your transmission, you will receive one of the warranty coverages offered. In addition to warranty coverage, we would like to check the transmission again 10 to 15 days after the service to make sure your car’s transmission is operating properly and the transmission fluid level is correct. We want to ensure the top performance of you transmission to your complete satisfaction.
