Not to diminish that statement "as it is very real" however these "Difficulties and Complexities" have always been and always will be a part of the transmission repair industry.
All things considered the transmission repair industry throughout the years has incured many different changes, especially with the influx of instant internet communication and an industry filled with product advertising hype, which often includes "exaggerated, misleading and or outright false" claims.
Successful transmission repair today not only entails the need for better education, but also requires the expansion of a technicians own intellect or "Common Sense". As said many times before the old adage " A little Common Sense goes a long way", has never been more true, and must be repeated once again.
