Automatic Transmission Repairs – A week in the workshop

Automatic transmission repairs in Ware

As you’d expect from the automatic transmission experts in the Stephens Engineering workshop, it’s been another busy week and for us, it’s all about automatic transmission repairs. We’re sharing a small snapshot of some of the vehicles and their problems that we’ve seen this week.

2012 Vauxhall Insignia was brought in needing automatic transmission repairs. This Vauxhall Insignia  has a front wheel drive six speed automatic transmission and in the Vauxhall Insignia, this unit does seem to have issues after approximately seventy thousand miles. Harsh gear changes were noted and this Vauxhall was brought in just in time for us to repair and return to smooth running.

2011 Vauxhall Astra which had covered  32,000 miles was brought in with gear change problems and no reverse gear.  After a thorough diagnostic scan, solenoid codes were noted and on inspection, we found that the transmission unit had overheated and damaged the internal components. We carried out automatic transmission repairs, removing and dismantling the Astra’s transmission and fitting a replacement torque converter. After re-fitting the Vauxhall Astra automatic transmission, the vehicle was running well.

2008 BMW X5 with a z.f. six speed automatic transmission was brought in with a slip in both 5th and 6th gear, the diagnostic scan picked codes highlighting a problem with the E-clutch assembly. When the BMW X5 gearbox was removed and dismantled and the E-clutch was pressure tested to check for pressure loss. We replaced the E-clutch unit and rebuilt the transmission using the original z.f. components and after some thorough automatic transmission repairs, the gearbox was back to original performance.
