What Is a Transmission Rebuild?

Whether you drive an automatic, manual, or CVT car, the transmission is crucial to your car's performance. It is difficult to know what to do when your transmission starts malfunctioning. It will be even more challenging to determine whether you need a transmission rebuild or replacement. Knowing what your options are is essential when facing a transmission repair.

New Parts

If an issue with your transmission is detected early, repairs and adjustments can be completed making a transmission rebuild unnecessary. Replacing transmission parts without having to remove the transmission from the car will save you time and money.

However, it is wise to look at the big picture and have the mechanic do a conclusive inspection of the transmission. A few damaged transmission parts will affect the others even when you fix them. Therefore, a full transmission rebuild may be the best choice in the long run.

The Transmission Rebuild Process

A transmission diagnosis is the first step of the transmission rebuild process to determine the cause of the problem. The evaluation determines whether you should proceed with the transmission rebuild.
The process involves removing the transmission from the car and disassembling it. The next step is to chemically clean the transmission using a parts washer. The mechanic will then replace any damaged parts. Next, come the electrical repairs. Finally, the rebuilt transmission is put back in the vehicle.

Cost Of A Transmission Rebuild

Like other car repair jobs, the cost of a transmission rebuild varies widely. The cost will be determined by various factors, including the make & model of the car, the extent of the transmission damage, and how many parts need replacement.
