The 2008 GMC Acadia transmission transforms the raw rotational motion from the engine into power that can be regulated and delivered to the drive wheels. If your SUV's transmission is having issues, it can leave you stranded or dangerously stuck in the middle of busy traffic. A dependable correction is a must, and a replacement transmission assembly from AutoZone is often the best solution.
What Does a Transmission Do?
In simple terms, the transmission harnesses the engine's power and transmits it to the wheels in a way the driver can control. A 2008 Acadia transmission is fluid-filled, and the valve body uses the fluid for hydraulic pressure to command gear changes and other functions. A range of clutches, gears, and shafts move power through the transmission before sending it to the drive wheels where it propels the vehicle. A sophisticated onboard computer module and several sensors monitor its operation and perform tasks to make sure it works as designed.
Signs of Failing Automatic Transmission
are intended to last for hundreds of thousands of miles, but it's possible for lack of servicing or misuse to cause a fault before its time. If that happens with your Acadia, you'll experience symptoms that may include large red fluid leaks, missed shifts or hard shifting, flaring RPMs, or an inability to get your car moving in any gear. As well, most transmission failures will trigger the Check Engine Light to come on.
2008 GMC Acadia Transmission Replacement Cost
A transmission rebuild is highly technical and requires precision tools, so a complete transmission replacement is often a more applicable repair. It takes six hours or more to replace a 2008 GMC Acadia AWD transmission, thus it's a job meant for a professional mechanic or a highly experienced DIYer. A new or remanufactured transmission will range from around $2,400 to $3,300 and may require additional parts and fluids too.
