We can examine your transmission and determine what needs to be done. Here are some options you could choose from when you need to replace your transmission:
Buy a new one: This is the most expensive option, and is good for newer cars, but not always the most economical choice.
Buy a used one from a junkyard: This may be the cheapest option, but it comes with the most risk. You have no way of knowing the condition of the transmission and there may not be a warranty.
Buy a rebuilt transmission: This is often a good choice but can get expensive.
Rebuilding the one you have with genuine OEM parts: This is often the best option. The transmission is taken apart and every part examined. Every worn part is replaced. You will know exactly the condition of the transmission and in essence, have a new one.
If you feel that your transmission is slipping gears, or if it makes strange noises when shifting, there could be a problem. If you get it checked out at this point, it may be fixable. If the car stops moving at times, you have a more serious problem and it could go out at any time. Also, watch for leaks. Often a transmission with a problem will leak to some degree. If you catch problems early enough you can often avoid more costly repairs later. Get the transmission fluid replaced or flushed when recommended by your owner's manual to prevent problems from developing.
