Automatic and standard transmissions are very complex. Adding to the complexity in the newer vehicles of today is the use of computers in both engines and transmissions. Proper diagnostic testing is a must in pinpointing existing problems. At that point, a decision can be made as to whether you need a new transmission or if you can rebuild your existing one.
Most people think that if a transmission needs repairs or rebuilding, they need to replace the entire vehicle. This is no longer the case. If you've decided to rebuild your existing transmission, you have chosen a cost-effective way to keep your vehicle rather than selling it. When you rebuild - you're basically getting a new transmission. This is more affordable than having to replace an entire vehicle.
While rebuilding a transmission may sound easy, it can be difficult without the proper equipment. The transmission is completely taken apart. All components other than the housing are replaced, and the housing itself is cleaned and inspected. Repairs should be done in a regulated auto repair shop to ensure the job is done properly and safely. Having the work done by a qualified technician at Sullivan's Family Auto Repair is your best bet for this type of work . The amount of seals and gaskets in addition to clutches can be quite large. In order to have your rebuild be successful, proper placement of these parts is crucial. Visit our Virginia Beach shop for qualified technicians to get the job done quickly for you.
Hearing that your vehicle needs a new transmission shouldn't be as frightening as it used to be. With today's technology and properly certified technicians available, it is definitely a good way to save your vehicle.
