What Does A Car Transmission Do?

Your vehicle’s transmission does the important work of converting the rotational speed from the engine into the proper road speed for your wheels. It’s one of the most complex parts of a car, especially an automatic transmission because it relies on a valve body to direct fluid into valves which activate clutch packs or band and servos to run.

What Is the Difference Between a Transmission Fluid Exchange and Transmission Drain and Fill?

When you get a transmission drain and fill for your vehicle, an expert technician drains old fluid and replaces it with new fluid. This service can be performed on an automatic or standard transmission. In automatic transmissions, only the fluid from the pan is drained during this service. A transmission fluid exchange is a more thorough service where all of the fluid is exchanged with a machine, including the fluid inside the torque converter. This service is only for automatic transmissions. You should follow your manufacturer’s guidelines on which type of transmission service is recommended for your vehicle.

How Much Does a Transmission Service Cost?

Car transmissions are complex machinery that require careful attention. Basic maintenance, like manufacturer recommended fluid exchanges, should cost somewhere in low hundreds or less if it is a drain and fill. However, you can expect transmission replacements to be more expensive because of the complexity of the machinery and expertise needed to complete the job. We recommend you request a quote from a service advisor before repair to get a clear idea of costs.
