You do the best you can to take care of your Volkswagen, but sometimes the vehicle still needs new parts. It isn’t always a matter of maintenance and TLC. When the transmission on a vehicle stops functioning, it feels devastating. The vehicle is dead in the water, but a defunctioning transmission doesn’t mean you need to go car shopping. Anything can be fixed, and with transmissions, a replacement service can get you back on the road for much less than the cost of a new car.
As the name implies, this service replaces the transmission for your vehicle. The transmission is one of the vital components of the drivetrain. Without it, the vehicle isn’t going anywhere. When unfortunate circumstances arise, a transmission can be damaged beyond repair. In those cases, a full replacement is necessary.
The service will do more than simply swap one part for another. Matching a transmission to the engine is a difficult and precise process. Professional mechanics will fully drain the fluid from the old transmission, handle waste disposal, install the new transmission and then perform a multi-point inspection to ensure everything is working properly. The entire process can take hours of labor, providing you with a guaranteed safe and working vehicle when the work is done.
For the most part, transmission replacements arise from two possible sources: wear and tear and collision. If a collision renders the transmission inoperable, it’s common for the damage to be irreparable. Transmissions are made of heavy metals, and if they are bent or cracked, repair is out of the question.
In the case of wear and tear, repair is a viable option in many cases, provided you address the problem soon enough. The gears in a transmission grind together. They use friction to switch the operating gear, and the friction-able material wears down over time. When there is not enough transmission fluid — or if it degrades — this process is accelerated. Catching transmission wear early is the best way to mitigate damage and prevent the necessity of a complete replacement (which typically costs more).
