Take the car in for an inspection by one of AAMCO's technicians to determine the problem and solution.
The technician informs the owner of the necessary repairs after diagnosing the transmission issue. The repairs are put in writing, and the owner must give permission to continue.
To help drivers understand more about their transmissions, AAMCO put together a list of helpful tips that make caring for a transmission simple. To know if a transmission has a problem, look at its fluid. A healthy transmission's fluid has no odor and is reddish-brown in color. Burnt fluid indicates damage from overheating, and varnished fluid has been overheated repeatedly. Low transmission fluid often indicates a leak that should be repaired as soon as possible, states AAMCO.com.
If a vehicle needs a new transmission, AAMCO's technicians can rebuild the old one using quality parts. The mechanic takes the transmission completely apart and replaces worn or defective parts with new ones. The mechanic then cleans all the parts and puts the transmission back together.
