As Stephens Engineering are experts in automatic transmission fault finding and automatic gearbox repairs, we see an array of different vehicles with automatic transmission problems. We use our knowledge and expertise, combined with the best diagnostic tools to fault find and repair the automatic transmission on the vehicles brought into our workshop.

A 2011 Ford B Max was brought into the Stephens Engineering workshop for investigation and repair.  The problem was recorded that this 2011 Ford B Max had a violent shift and noise when changing into third gear.  This model of vehicle is fitted with the latest dual-clutch sequential shift transmission.  The transmission was removed and thoroughly inspected and on inspection,  we found that the selector fork mechanism  within the transmission had failed.  After locating the cause of the gearbox failure, the gearbox was repaired and re-fitted with a new dual clutch.  Finally, a re-learn procedure was carried out and then the vehicle was ready for a final road test.  The vehicle was road tested  was now driving fine.

Stephens Engineering Repairs to a Mercedes Automatic Gearbox

Stephens Engineering Repairs to a Mercedes Automatic Gearbox

At Stephens Engineering, you will always find knowledgeable, expert mechanics with the experience to work on your automatic transmission and gearbox. With over fifty years experience, we have the expertise to rebuild the automatic gearbox on both stunning classic vehicles through to repairing the automatic transmission on current modern vehicles.

Just one of the many repairs we have recently undertaken was for a Mercedes automatic gearbox.

We have worked on a number of seven speed auto gearboxes in our workshops recently which all had wear issues within the automatic transmission. Gearbox and engine damage can occur through wear and tear of the gearbox parts; thrust bearings eat into the gear case which if not rectified can cause significant damage to your vehicle’s engine. To rectify this problem, we manufacture our own bronze replacement shims. Each of our bronze shims is bespoke manufactured to fit your gearbox. Drag and judder can sometimes be a problem and to ensure we eliminate any drag and judder, we also fit a performance kit to the torque converter. In our experience, because we manufacture the individual components for each individual vehicle, we often find that the transmission runs smoother because we don’t use ready made ‘off the peg’ components, we manufacture replacement parts within our workshops.

At Stephens Engineering, we not only manufacture bespoke, precision parts for your automatic gearbox, in addition, if during our thorough inspection, we discover any weaknesses within your gearbox, we will carry out the necessary modification work to update and modify your vehicle’s gearbox, giving your transmission exceptional service.
