STEP 1: Diagnosis

Does your car have a transmission problem? 

This is the first step to ensuring your car is running smoothly and safely.

Some of the most common signs of a transmission problem are:

Strange Noises: If you hear unusual noises like whining, clunking, or buzzing when your car is in neutral or shifting gears, it could be a sign of transmission trouble.

Difficulty Shifting Gears: If you find it hard to shift gears, or if the shifts are not smooth and you feel jerky movements, it could be a transmission issue.

Slipping Gears: A transmission that slips in and out of gear while driving is a clear indicator of a problem. This can be dangerous and should be addressed immediately.

Delayed Engagement: Experiencing a delay or a pause when you shift from park to drive or reverse can be a sign of transmission issues.

What’s next?

Depending on the condition and your needs. You may be able to choose from a few options.  To repair, rebuild or replace your transmission

Option 1

Repair Transmission

When: If the issue is minor or localized to a specific part of the transmission (like a solenoid or sensor).
Pros: Usually the most cost-effective option for minor issues. Less time-consuming than a rebuild or replacement.
Cons: Not viable for transmissions with extensive damage or wear. It’s a temporary solution if the transmission has underlying, more serious issues.

Option 2

Rebuild Transmission

When: If your transmission has multiple faulty components but the overall structure is sound.

Pros: Can be more cost-effective than a full replacement, especially if only a few parts need replacing. It retains the original setup of your car, which can be beneficial for older or classic cars.

Cons: Can be more expensive than a simple repair if extensive work is needed. The quality of the rebuild depends heavily on the skill of the mechanic.

Option 3

Replace Transmission

When: If the transmission is extensively damaged, or if a repair or rebuild would be more expensive than a replacement. Also considered for very old vehicles where parts are hard to find.
Pros: Provides a long-term solution and often comes with a warranty. Can be more reliable than a rebuild, especially if the replacement is a new or factory-reconditioned unit.
Cons: Typically the most expensive option. For some vehicles, especially older or less common models, finding a replacement transmission can be difficult.
