There are many reasons why a full custom transmission rebuild may be recommended over a complete transmission replacement or trying to make partial repairs. It can provide a long-term solution and help make your transmission run like new again. There are pros and cons with other repair or replacement solutions. Let’s take a look at some of the options and how rebuilding your transmission might be your best course of action.
Transmission Rebuild vs. Transmission Repairs
There are times when simple repairs can do the trick. There are one or two damaged components that need to be replaced or things that can be easily fixed. Otherwise, the rest of your transmission is relatively healthy and doesn’t require a full rebuild. When a transmission rebuild might be more beneficial is when there are multiple damaged parts and general wear, tear, corrosion and other issues within the transmission system. A full custom transmission rebuild involves breaking down each and every component. Healthy parts are professionally cleaned and reinstalled. Damaged/worn parts are replaced. The transmission is completely rebuilt to ensure everything is working its best.
Transmission Rebuild vs. Transmission Replacement
There are other times when the internal transmission damage is too much to simply repair. Some mechanics or general auto shops may recommend a full transmission replacement. They may not be as experienced or knowledgeable about the benefits of transmission rebuilds, so replacing the transmission could be their suggestion when the internal damage is significant enough. Getting a brand new transmission from a dealership or the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) can be very expensive. Buying a used or refurbished transmission could save you some money, but there are risks involved. Things don’t always fit properly and it’s hard to say how well a different transmission will work within your vehicle. A transmission rebuild utilizes your existing transmission to ensure it continues to work with your vehicle.
