    I got a lite ace subic automatic transmission, 2c 4WD diesel ang engine, nag-shift-shift naman sya pero most of the time mag-oover-rev muna sya before mag-shift to the next gear.Bale gan2 sya,while driving and you step on the gas mag-shift ng gear, but pagdating sa 3rd gear, d2 sya mag-overrev tapos saka mag-shift. Dinala namin sya to a well known mechanic d2 sa forum.

    Nung cnabi nming ung problem. He first suggest a transmission flush kc usually ganun daw talaga ung problem caused by a clogged transmission. Ni-dala namin nung weekend para i-flush ung transmission.

    Ni-drive test muna nung mechanic before flushing it, tapos after drive testing, he concluded na, a rebuilding kit is necessary daw to fix this, di na daw sya kaya ng flushing. He quoted the cost of labor and parts, 27k ung price for 3 days na nandun sa shop ung van.

    Mukhang overhaul ng transmission kelangan, so pumunta muna ako Banaue before i-decide.Nakita ko ung mga nakalatag na engine and transmission dun sa harap ng shop sa banaue.We ask the cost of labor and transmission, its 19k.

    Sorry haba istorya ko, hehehe, the thing is, my mind is torn between reliability and cost. How reliable is ung banaue transmission.May experience na po ba kau sa automatic transmission overhaul 2c 4wd, help naman po, dyan. I hope this is detailed enough.Hehehe.


    Oks lang ba kung mention ko ung name ng mechani shop?uUu.

    Dapat yung pinaka least expensive approach muna ang gawin mo before doin a swap/overhaul ng transmission.When was the last time na napalitan ang trans oil?Also check the governor, vacuum modulator or throttle cable.Bring it to a shop that specialize in AT transmission.

    Pinacheck ko na po ung basics dun sa mechanic (trans oil,belts,filter, (xenxa na not familiar with the parts he mentioned) and sya na nagsabi na transmission overhaul na kelangan.actually he mentioned a "transmission rebuilding kit", when i heard that, i just hold my pockets and i think it sounds like an overhaul.tsk tsk tsk.aww.

    Mention ko na nga, sa Cruven ko po sya dinala. I am not familiar po talaga sa mechanic stuffs, but base on what i saw here in the forum, magaling ang Zee and Cruven sa AT stuffs. C Greg (Cruven, Makati) pala ung tumingin ng van ko. Layo kc ako San Juan kaya, dun na lang ako sa Cruven pumunta.

    Cruven and Zee are suspension shops. They are not transmission specialists.

    You can try autotechnika at the Fort or in Fairview. They have transtech ATF flushing machine.

    Kung mababantayan mo yung trabaho ng taga banawe, why not. Ask mo kung merun waranty ang works nila.

    AFAIK, all auto-tranny are expensive to maintain...lalo na as they grown old.

    That is why I'd rather stick to manual tranny.

    As much as possible hindi ako nagpapagawa dun sa mga palakad lakad lang sa Banawe. Yung nagtitinda ng transmission, minsan yung mga freelancers din na yun ang tinatawag to install stuff (in short, wala silang inhouse mechanic).

    Try mo muna pa-diagnose sa competent shop before weighing your options. Madaming recommended shops dito sa forums.
