Your Auto Service Experts technician will diagnose many transmission problems through this extensive external check and recommend the right repair for you. But Auto Service Experts' diagnostics don't stop there. Even, if an initial check doesn't diagnose your problem, we still won't recommend a rebuilt transmission service until we know EXACTLY what is causing your problem.

Computer and Internal Diagnostics

Our advanced computer and internal diagnostics are the next level of diagnostics that ensure Auto Service Experts technicians will only fix what needs fixing. Many transmission problems start in the computer system of today's highly technical, computer-controlled vehicles - your transmission receives the wrong signals from your vehicle's computer system. The Auto Service Experts Computer Diagnostic Service is performed to determine if an electronic component is affecting your transmission's shifting or overall performance and includes:

 • Using a computer system scanner to retrieve any trouble codes and
    to determine the probable cause. All critical computer systems in the
    vehicle are checked for trouble codes, because a variety of systems
    could cause driveability issues.
 • Reviewing the computer system data against the Alldata technical
   database - the most extensive transmission computer diagnostic source
   available anywhere.
 • Connecting the Snap-On Solus to see whether the problem is inside
   or outside of the transmission in the computer system.
Your certified Auto Service Experts center technician will also:
 • Check the electronic components
 • Check the solenoids and sensors
 • Check the wiring that effects the transmission, solenoids and sensors
Your Auto Service Experts certified technician can then determine if an electronic component or part needs to be replaced, and make a recommendation for whatever service is necessary. It is our comprehensive diagnostic approach that sets Auto Service Experts apart, so that you only get the repair you need and your car, truck or SUV is back on the road as soon as possible.
For over 10 years, Auto Service Experts Centers have become the trusted experts in the diagnosis, service and maintenance of transmissions. Call Auto Service Experts first, before starting any repair, and we will perform our extensive Trans Scan diagnosis on your transmission. And for over half the cars we service, we find only a minor repair is required. Call a competitor or local independent shop, and they may quote you a price for a transmission that you may not need!
If your transmission does require repair, Auto Service Experts will rebuild your transmission right - not install a cheap junkyard unit. We will back it with the strongest warranty in the business!
Fixing your transmission problem right, starts with diagnosing your problem right! That's why we will perform our exclusive multi-point Trans Scan service on every car before we do any transmission repair.
We have the technology and expert diagnosticians to pin-point the root of your transmission problems so we only repair what needs fixing and nothing more. Over half of the time, we'll discover your transmission only requires a minor repair. It's why Auto Service Experts is the most trusted name in transmissions and has been for over 10 years.
