When To Repair, Replace or Rebuild Your Transmission?
Consider a transmission repair when only one specific part of the transmission has failed. This is a low-cost transmission service option. Repairs can be done quickly and don't require replacing multiple parts. However, this option is only available for minor problems.
A transmission rebuild may be required if multiple parts of the transmission have failed but the entire transmission does not need to be replaced. A transmission rebuild is a custom service based on replacing only the parts you need. It is a cost-effective option and is often less expensive than a transmission replacement.
During a transmission rebuild, first, the entire transmission is taken apart and inspected. Next, multiple damaged parts are replaced. Finally, the transmission is reassembled and installed.
When the majority of the transmission is worn beyond repair, a transmission replacement may be necessary. Replace your transmission with a new transmission or a manufacturer refurbished transmission. Generally, a transmission replacement is more expensive than a repair or rebuild but is also a longer-term fix.
Factors Affecting The Cost of Transmission Repairs
- Extent of Damage
- Manual Transmission vs. Automatic Transmission
- Vehicle Make and Model
