It's the same for most other automatic transmissions, and the main part of the transmission that connects to the engine. similar to a hydraulic clutch. They tend to fail over time and necessitate replacement. But if your mechanic is pulling the transmission, 9 out 10 times, a rebuild is recommended due to other worn parts in the transmission.
