There are several different options when deciding what to do when
faced with major Auto repairs. Obviously the cost of the repairs,
down time, personal finances, age and service life of the vehicle
should be considered when making these decisions.
CUSTOM REBUILT TRANSMISSIONS, rebuilt in our shop are the
most common, cost effective way of bringing your vehicle back in
service. We use only name brand trusted parts and have the ability
to adjust the performance of the transmission to prevent repeat
failures. Most of our custom rebuilt transmissions come with a 3 year
36 thousand mile “ATSG” warranty. Transmissions custom rebuilt
here in our shop all receive a master overhaul kit, torque converter,
bands, bushings, filter and necessary internal electronics. Factory
recommended or equivalent transmission fluid standard. For most
vehicles this is all that is necessary to bring the transmission back to
factory specification. After we disassemble and inspect all the
components of the transmission any other parts needed such as;
pumps, gears, drums and shafts are then purchased. The
transmission is then thoroughly cleaned and reassembled. All
vehicles are road tested and adjusted for proper operation. The
vehicles on board computer is checked and cleared for any
transmission related codes.
RE MANUFACTURED TRANSMISSIONS. We can purchase
transmissions from many different sources. Dealers and vendors
that offer various warranties for their product. The performance of
these warranties vary and should be considered when making a
decision. Re manufactured transmissions usually cost around 30-
50% higher than rebuilt.
USED TRANSMISSIONS. We can purchase used transmissions
and install them but warranties vary greatly. Most used
transmissions only have a 90 day part only warranty. Labor is not
covered if the transmission fails for any reason. We strongly
recommend replacing all the external oil seal and servicing the filter
before installing a used transmission.
Removal and installation If after receiving a diagnosis, you are
told that transmission removal is required for repair, an
understanding of this procedure is important. A quality rebuilt or
repaired transmission is only as good as its installation. R&I
procedures are dictated by the type of transmission and vehicle
being worked on (RWD) rear wheel drive. (FWD) Front wheel drive,
and (4WD) 4 wheel drive cars and trucks as well as Hybrid vehicles
with (CVT) continuously variable transmissions each need special
considerations when working on them.
RWD vehicles have a transmission. The differential is at the rear of
the vehicle driven by a drive shaft.
FWD vehicles have a trans axle. The transmission and differential
are integral. Two drive axles turn the wheels at the front of the
4WD vehicles have a transmission coupled to a transfer case. The
transfer case transfers power to the front and rear differentials
using Two drive shafts. Most 4WD vehicles are capable of running in
a 2WD mode.
HYBRID vehicles use a combination electric motors and gas engine
usually coupled to a CVT transmission. Extra care must be taken
when working on these vehicles due to the risk of electrical shock.
CVT vehicles and some ultra low emissions vehicles such as Hybrids
usually have FWD Continuously variable transmission that can
seamlessly change gear ratios according to demand.
