Not all transmission problems result in spending huge amounts of money on a rebuild. With the introduction of electronically controlled transmissions many shifting problems, slipping, harsh engagements can be corrected by first scanning the on-board computer for DTC’s, (diagnostic trouble codes) stored in the computer memory. These codes will assist the technician in determining if it is an electrical or hydraulic problem. If electrical most solenoids can be replaced in the chassis without pulling the transmission out of the vehicle.
Most importantly, a poor running engine getting a minor tune-up can make the transmission perform like new. These new electronic controlled units are highly sensitive to the proper running condition of the engine, proper voltage from the battery and good ground.
