After learning about the benefits of rebuilding your automatic transmission, let me take you on an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of J Powertrain to find out more about the processes.
There are two main processes at J Powertrain – automatic transmission rebuilding and torque converter remanufacturing.
These processes are rather complex and would require specialised mechanics to carry out the job.
AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION PROCESS FLOW
1) Removal and installation
2) Initial visual inspection
3) Dismantling and further detailed inspection
4) Chemical washing
6) Valvebody testing
7) Solenoid testing
8) Dyno testing
TORQUE CONVERTER PROCESS FLOW
1) Cutting off the torque converter
2) Servicing the torque converter – replacing o-rings and oil seals
3) Bond fiction plate
5) Auto welding
6) Leak testing
8) Clearance checking
Once everything is completed, it goes back to the car!
