Automatic Transmission Repair

Repairing an automatic transmission is easier said than done. There are several types of automatic transmissions: Hydraulic, semi-automatic and continuously variable transmissions (CVT). That's why it's best to have a qualified shop and technician handle the repairs for you. The most common type of transmission is the hydraulic. At Universal Motorsports our team of experts provides automatic transmission repairs in Warner Robins.

Many of today's new vehicles have computers that operate the engine and the transmission. Without proper diagnostic testing, you'll have difficulty pinpointing exactly where your transmission troubles are.

    1. Replacement Parts

Repairing an automatic transmission can involve replacing a number of parts, including but not limited to gaskets and seals. Newer models may need replacement of sensors in the computers. If replacement of sensors is needed, diagnostic testing will be needed both before and after repairs.

    1. Save Time and Money

Transmission technicians are your best bet for saving time and money when it comes to transmission repairs. As technology changes, so does the knowledge needed to make proper repairs. A certified technician and the shop he works for will have the most current training and knowledge of the electronics in today's vehicles. This will ensure that any repairs needed on your vehicle are done properly. All of the necessary equipment needed is at their fingertips. Correct and complete repairs can be done in a matter of days, lessening the time you are with your vehicle.
