Read our short guide with information on costs, symptoms and more.

What is a car transmission?

Simply put, a car transmission transfers power from the engine to the wheels. It is made up of a series of gears and shafts that increase or decrease the amount of power that is sent to the wheels. Automatic and manual Petrol, Diesel and Hybrid cars both have a transmission.

Does insurance cover transmission repair?

Whether transmission repair is covered under insurance will depend on the policy and the insurance provider. Many insurance companies will cover transmission repairs if the repairs required are the result of an accident.

 How much does a Car Transmission inspection, repair & replacement cost?

You can expect a car transmission inspection to cost around £80 depending on the location of the car. Depending on what repairs or replacements are needed after the car ignition inspection is carried out, the additional cost will differ in each case. To get an exact price for a specific transmission repair (like an transmission fluid filter replacement), enter your vehicle registration number along with your postcode above to get an instant price.

Is transmission covered under warranty?

Yes, in most cases the transmission is covered as part of the powertrain section of the manufacturer warranty, usually for 5 years or specific amount of miles, whichever comes first. Details of warranty coverage for transmission issues will ultimately depend on the terms of the individual manufacturer warranty. Each manufacturer will set different terms and conditions so it is important to check your warranty documents to see how you're covered.

What is the difference between engine oil and transmission fluid?

Engine oil and transmission fluid serve different purposes in a car. Engine oil is a lubricant that helps to protect the engine from wear and tear and regulates the engine's overall performance. Transmission fluid is a lubricant that helps keep the gears in the transmission running smoothly. Engine oil is usually golden or yellow in colour whereas new transmission fluid is typically red.

 What happens if I put engine oil into my transmission?

If you put engine oil into your transmission, it will likely cause significant damage to your transmission and engine and can lead to expensive repairs. If you find yourself using the wrong fluid, seek help from a professional mechanic who may be able to conduct a fluid flush and prevent any damage.

 What is transmission fluid?

Transmission fluid is a type of hydraulic fluid used to lubricate and cool the moving parts inside a car's transmission. It helps in making sure the transmission can shift gars smoothly.

Does changing transmission fluid help shifting?

A transmission fluid flush can often help in aiding the transmission maintenance process as it would help flush out any debris and gunk. When refilling with new transmission fluid it's then less likely that the new fluid gets contaminated by old dirty fluid. This in turn can assist in helping the transmission shift gears more smoothly.

 Can you repair an automatic transmission?

Yes, it is possible to repair an automatic transmission. Automatic transmissions are more complex than manual transmission which sometimes make it tricky to carry out repairs as such. Hence it will often be recommended to get the unit rebuild or get an already reconditioned unit to fit. The latter is often the more cost-effective option.
