Gearbox Repair – A Week in the Workshop
At Stephens Engineering, we’re known for our knowledge and expertise in fault finding and the carrying out of automatic gearbox repair. Our knowledge and experience gives us the edge; we have worked on most automatic transmission units and over the years, we have rectified a wide range of faults and problems.
We often see vehicles being brought into the Stephens Engineering workshop and our customers report a problem with the gearbox and more often than not, they’re right, however, there are occasions when a customer experiences problems with their car and believes it to be transmission related and our experience tells us that this possibly is not the case. With our automatic gearbox fault finding experience, we’re able to recognise faults that appear to be gearbox problems but are not the result of a gearbox fault. A good example of this scenario is the Bentley recently brought into the workshop with a transmission fault and a vehicle owner considering a new automatic transmission for their Bentley. Whilst there was certainly an issue with the performance of the Bentley, there was a particularly bad whine and vibration when the vehicle was under acceleration, our experience told us this was not a transmission issue. Examination of the transmission unit confirmed that the problem was, in fact, the gearbox and engine mounting.
Our customer could have been faced with an expensive repair bill to replace the complete transmission unit, however, with our knowledge and skill, we were able to find the true cause of the problem and get the vehicle back on the road quickly.
If you suspect your vehicle has a problem with it’s automatic transmission, book your car in to the Stephens Engineering workshop in Ware, the automatic transmission experts fault finding and repairing automatic transmissions for over 40 years.
