What are the Most Challenging Car Repairs?

Servicing and repairing cars comes with some jobs being tougher to complete than others. Difficult and expensive repairs are often going to take longer to finish and require more labour. The most common types of challenging car repairs are:

Car Transmission

The transmission system is one of the most expensive systems of the car to repair. One major sign that the transmission system is going out is that the transmission fluid is leaking from the car. When it is difficult to change gears then the transmission fluid may be low or there might be problems with the clutch linkage or shift cables. When gears slip, the clutch drags and fluid leaks they will need a mechanic to repair the issues. 

Vehicle Frame

When the vehicle frame or body becomes damaged, often in a smash, then there is more work to be done. Repairing the vehicle body and frame back to its original state can be difficult. The proper tools and techniques need to be applied to have the car’s shape be exact. Restoring the car back to its original shape will require skill, precision and time to ensure all angles and measurements are correct. 

This is why body work repairs will often be more difficult because more time and skill has to be dedicated to ensure the car is repaired back to the exact shape. Other tasks may also be needed, such as welding, and replacements, to make certain the vehicle frame is restored completely. 

Engine System

Engine rebuilds, repairs and replacements are some of the most challenging car repair jobs. Since there are so many parts involved within the engine system performing repairs is often complicated and involves more labour. When the engine needs repairs the cost may be greater than buying a new vehicle and will often lead to a new car being purchased over repairing the old engine. There are many parts involved in the engine and making sure the car can run safely and well. When a mechanic has to perform an engine repair there will be numerous tools and techniques used to guarantee the system functions perfectly after repairs are finished. 

Gear Differentials

Repairing the gear differentials is a rare repair but when it is time to repair them it is a difficult job. The main times gear differentials are going to be repaired are when an accident occurs and the system is damaged badly. Repairs for this system will need to occur as soon as possible and the main parts repaired are the gears, seals, housings and bearings. 

Clutch System

After every 30,000km, the clutch system will need to be repaired or replaced as wear and tear are common. When the clutch does not work correctly then this results in oil spilling and the car not being able to function correctly. Repairing the clutch involves removing the whole transmission system to work on the repairs. This is why clutch repairs are more difficult to perform as other systems will need to be removed and rebuilt for the service to be completed. 

Spark Plugs

The spark plugs are the part of the car that will ignite the gas vapours and turn on the engine. Repairing the spark plugs is not expensive but the process to repair or replace them is hard due to their size. They are located in parts of the car that are harder to access, and in some cars, can be amongst other parts and crammed together. This type of car servicing will differ for each car as some spark plugs will be easier to access and repair while others will often take longer due to their size and location.
