Mobile ad-hoc network is a temporary wireless network having movable mobile nodes as the only element of network. For transmission of data individual nodes behaves as a router. A during this process of routing operations the motion of nodes & environmental factors like traffic, delays etc causes the link break occurs between the nodes & data is lost. AODV is an on demand distance vector routing protocol. This work focuses on improving the performance & fault tolerant routing in MANET. It has two mechanism named as source repair & local repair for dealing with this link repair. But the decision is very complicated that which algorithm is applied at what instance.
