Repair of the mechanical part.
Usually, after disassembling the transmission, you can almost immediately see some faulty parts. It could be burnt clutch discs, broken gears or shafts, worn connections, etc. When we are checking the condition of the automatic transmission system, we are trying to not only see the broken parts but understand the reason for their breakdown. After all, if you do not understand why these parts broke down, then most likely, after a short time after the repair, this breakdown may recur. To understand the cause, it is often not enough just to think that the breakdown was simply due to wear and tear associated with vehicle mileage. The reason may be not noticeable at first glance malfunctions. For example, a breakdown of the mechanical part of the transmission may be associated with low pressure in the system, overheating, or poor lubrication system. Also, the cause may be malfunctioning in the hydraulic control unit or electronic unit. In order to correctly assess the scale of the problem, you need a lot of experience with this particular type of transmission. We often have to redo repair works of gearboxes that have already been in some workshops before us. but due to the lack of experience and knowledge of the workers in previous workshops, we have to redo everything, and customers re-pay for all repairs, despite the fact that a decent amount has already been spent. It depends on the experience and knowledge of the master performing the repairs how much the transmission will still work after the repair. Almost all the parts that we install during the repair are new. They do not always have to be from the original manufacturer since there are many manufacturers on the market that offer parts that are not inferior in quality, but much cheaper. To choose the best option for price and quality, you also need experience with different manufacturers, because this is the only way to understand what will really work reliably. Usually, during repair, repair kits are used, which include absolutely all cuffs, elastic bands, etc. To replace all this, the gearbox must be disassembled. This is a very time-consuming process, and some masters believe that this is not necessary. But this is the only way to ensure that all the little things will be considered, and over time, none of the cuffs will break. In fact, in the process of repairing little things do not exist. And it is precisely such an attentive approach that allows us to give a guarantee after repair up to 2 years.
Repair of the torque converter.
Torque converter – this is a mechanism, the condition of which cannot be determined without opening, although there are some signs by which you can understand whether it is working properly or not. Even if there are no visible signs indicating its breakdown, a high-quality transmission repair is not conceivable without opening and subsequent repair of the torque converter. Inside it is mechanisms that are also subject to aging, wear and tear or overheating. Therefore, we always repair torque converters, since they are an integral part of the transmission, on which both the quality of the transmission and its durability depend.
Repair of the hydraulic control unit and its electronic components.
Since many car owners forget that regular maintenance is required in the gearbox, hydraulic blocks wear out, clog up and eventually cause transmission breakdown. To make defect detection and repair of this unit, a special diagnostic tool is needed, as well as quite a lot of special tools for its repair. This is one of the most difficult transmission repair jobs that require great care and experience. After all, one awkward movement when reaming a worn hole for a working valve can lead to the fact that the entire valve body will be damaged, and it will need to be replaced. And it is costly. Therefore, many are simply afraid to do this, leaving this unit not restored, and this will not improve the operation of the transmission. Of course, there are types of transmissions in which these blocks wear out so much that repairs do not make sense, as its cost approaches the cost of a new one. And the cost of some blocks purchased directly from manufacturers is significantly lower than from official dealers of certain car brands. Then we definitely recommend that the client install a new valve body, as this allows to achieve perfect operation of the transmission after repair, at a relatively low price. We always consider the expediency of such repairs and try to find the best option for the car owner. Valve body repair also includes repair or replacement of solenoid valves.
Automatic transmission system repair – this is a very complex chain of actions that requires a really great experience, knowledge, quality details, an honest and conscientious approach.
