What Is a Transmission Rebuild?

One of the most vital parts of your vehicle is the transmission. Its purpose is to transfer power from the engine to the wheels. A transmission can be automatic, manual, or automatic with a manual function. All of them are complex - needing proper maintenance and repairs.

If you are having problem after problem, the best thing you can do is a transmission rebuild. Wondering what that is? Let us explain.

What Is A Transmission Rebuild?

It is a series of processes that result in better performance and faster shifts. Here are all steps that are included in a transmission rebuild:

  • Carefully removing the transmission from your vehicle.
  • Completely dismantling it.
  • Inspecting and, if needed, replacing damaged parts.
  • Cleaning all big and small components with a chemical solution.
  • Installing new gaskets and seals.
  • Repairing any faulty electric components.
  • Putting the transmission together and installing it back.

While everything that goes into a complete rebuild takes time, you are preventing future damage, furthermore keeping the transmission in the condition it left the factory.

Why Should I Have My Transmission Rebuilt?

At first, it looks like it takes a lot of time and money or is not necessary. Most transmissions going for thousands of miles completely fail because of the lack of needed rebuilds.

When a transmission gets rebuilt, it doesn't only cost money and time, but it also results in a much longer lifespan. Shifts are smoother and faster because everything is cleaned and lubricated. You can also experience a boost in power due to the better transition of power.

Things You Should Know

Our team will let you know a few extra things. After a freshly rebuilt transmission, you can experience some strange things, but don't panic because they will go away.

First of all, you shouldn’t give it too much gas for at least the first thousand miles. It takes time for all parts to lubricate, so drive slowly.

Any weird noises? It may seem strange, but depending on your vehicle, strange sounds can come from new parts put in during the process.

The clutch pedal, if you have one, can also be affected. At first, it can feel spongy or slow, but it will go away after a few days of driving.
