You could really say this in all honesty. So it goes that many do. The transmission is one of the most complex areas of the motor car or automobile. If anything should go wrong within this transmission, it is almost certainly going to affect the proper running of the vehicle in different areas. It could even affect how the car’s windshield or windscreen wipers could work. Or not. The system could conceivably collapse. But even so, when this happens, it is not necessarily the end of the world.
This keeps many a driver awake at night surely. The knowledgeable driver may be well aware of symptoms or warning light signals. Speaking of which, there is that vital component of the car. It is called the dashboard. You ignore it at your peril. Know it well, know what its signals or indicators signify. It is in the tradition of the car to give you warning lights, warning you way ahead of time that something is not quite right. It is giving you the opportunity to make amends, long before the time that the root cause needs to get any worse.
And there is that too. A warning that your car’s transmission is defaulting, one way or another. Early warning signs or acting when it is predictably or perceptively too late, it’s not. It may never be necessary to replace the existing transmission. The rebuilt transmission will be purposed in a variety of ways. In some cases, the motor mechanic may have to remove the car’s transmission from its cavity and work on it in his workshop. These could be related to complexities that could not possibly be fixed by crouching under the car’s bonnet.
And it could be left intact, just to be tinkered on over a minor issue.
