What Are the Differences Between Transmission Repair, Replacement, & Rebuild?

Your transmission requires regular maintenance, just like any other part of your car, to perform well. While there are more than several ways your transmission can indicate trouble, the main ones are warning lights, fluid leaks, and a burning smell. If you see any of these signs, take your car to Trinity Auto Haus as soon as possible.


There are three possible services that can be done to your transmission. Here is what you need to know about them:


Transmission Repair

A transmission repair is a cost-effective approach to fix more minor damages within the transmission. Transmission repair is ideal for minor fixes. This type of job includes repairing specific components, in-car repairs, various adjustments, and resealing. Transmission repairs do not require the transmission to be reassembled entirely. This type of repair is also not an option for transmissions with extensive damages.


Transmission Replacement

A transmission replacement is more expensive than a repair, but it is recommended for transmissions with severe damage. As the name states, the damaged part is moved and a new, rebuilt, or remanufactured transmission is put in place.


Transmission Rebuild

A rebuilt transmission is the ideal option for damaged transmissions that have salvageable parts. During this process, the transmission is detached, and we only replace the faulty parts. Afterward, the transmission is reassembled and put into the vehicle.


Transmission work is a serious and complex job, and it is best to leave this job to professionals to avoid injury. Addressing the issue firsthand could lead to more damage to the transmission.
