The 2006 Acura TL transmission is your car's central component that enables you to continue driving, accelerating, and shifting between forward and reverse by transferring power to the drive wheels in a way you can control. There's no room for a transmission that isn't working as designed since that puts your car's reliability into question. Fortunately, an ill-working transmission can be replaced with a new unit from AutoZone.
What Does a Transmission Do?
As with any vehicle, an Acura TL 2006 transmission is intended to convert the engine's rotational power into energy that can be harnessed. Inside, gears allow the driver to select forward or reverse as well as manipulate gear ratios to match the performance you demand. Clutches and other parts ensure that shifts are smooth without slipping. Power is then transferred from the transmission to the drive wheels.
Failing Transmission Symptoms
Although well-known for long-lasting operation, a 2006 Acura TL transmission 5-speed automatic can experience issues if it isn't properly maintained, and there's also potential for a defect to debilitate it. If that happens, you'll experience symptoms indicating a failure such as shift flares when the transmission changes gears, a harsh clunk or whining noise under the car when you drive, transmission fluid that smells badly burnt, a red fluid leak, or a vehicle that won't move when you put it in gear.
2006 Acura TL Transmission Replacement Cost
It's a major repair to exchange the transmission in an '06 TL, but a repair often costs as much and isn't supported by parts warranty. It takes most of a day to install a new transmission for a trained mechanic, so less-experienced DIYers may want to defer to a professional for the install. New and refurbished transmission assemblies start at around $2,400 and go up to around $3,600.
