Reseal Job: A transmission is resealed in order to repair external transmission fluid leaks. If you see spots of red oil on the ground under the car, your transmission may be a candidate for a reseal job. In order to check a transmission for leaks, a our auto mechanics will put the car on a lift and examine the unit for signs of oil leaks. If a leak is spotted at any of the external seals or gaskets and the transmission otherwise performs well, the technician will most likely recommend that the transmission be re-sealed. Most of the external seals can be replaced while the transmission is still in the car but, if the front seal must be replaced, the transmission must first be removed from the vehicle in order to gain access to it.

What does resealed transmission mean?
In today’s time, transmission is the most complicated system in the car and comprises of hundreds of complex components that enables your vehicle to move. The transmission system includes transmission fluid, electrical components, universal joints, and a torque converter. A transmission reseal is done to repair external transmission fluid leaks. If there are spots of red oil on the ground under the car, it means the transmission requires resealing. Having a leakage in the transmission can be a dangerous thing. It may come across as a few drips here and there, but it is bigger than this. Due to this leakage in the transmission, you will tend to lose about a quart of fluid every 10 days. This implies that if your transmission holds 4 quarts of oil in the pan and then their leakage will lead a quarter of your fluid capacity gone in almost 10 days and all of it will vanish in a month.
Why is resealing a transmission essential?
Having low transmission fluid can lead to several problems. Lack of fluid is expensive and can also cause higher than normal transmission temperatures. The fluid helps the car to stay away from the friction point. Leakage in the fluid could increase heat, but the reduced ability to cool the friction in the components may result in faster wear which can ultimately result in severe damage. Also low transmission fluid results in inadequate lubrication because there is not enough fluid to reach the critical areas of the transmission resulting in premature wear. Not only the wear and tear of car happen due to leakage in transmission, but the drivability is also affected. Transmission fluid is the high pressure operating fluid that causes gear smooth and accurate gear changes. A low level can result in your vehicle to behave unpredictably, and it could be dangerous also.
How do you know if you need your transmission resealed?
Bring it in and we will put the vehicle on a lift the and examine for signs of a transmission leak. If a leak is detected at any of the external seals or gaskets and the transmission otherwise works well, we provide resealing services. Most of the external seals can be replaced with the transmission still being in the car. However, if the resealed transmission work is to be done on the front seal the transmission is to be first removed from the vehicle to gain access to it.
A resealed transmission will help in the better functioning of the car. Along with it, the transmission is reinstalled with clean, fresh transmission fluid refilled to full level. At Delta Auto Care we will check your fluid levels on a regular basis and help you determine if you need to make an appointment with our transmission shop to get somethign fixed. http://www.deltaautocare.com
