Vehicle Transmission Replacement
Nobody likes hearing that their car needs a transmission replacement, but it happens more often than you'd think. The truth is that there are a wide variety of factors that can lead to a transmission breaking down or otherwise no longer functioning as it should. And as a crucial part of your vehicle's performance, the transmission will get to a point where it no longer runs at all if it is not replaced. That said, there are some things to consider before deciding whether or not to go through with the replacement, and it is also important to understand what exactly a transmission replacement entails.
What Exactly Does the Transmission Do?
Your transmission's primary purpose is to control the transfer of engine power to the driveshaft and the wheels to regulate your vehicle's speed and torque. Basically, the transmission keeps your wheels and your engine on the same page, and it is also responsible for ensuring the engine's power actually propels your vehicle. If it stops working, your vehicle stops running. In many cases, the damage can be repaired through transmission repair rather than full replacement, but depending on the severity of the damage, it could end up costing more than a complete transmission replacement.
