Understanding Transmission Repairs and Rebuilds: An Expert Guide by Weber Automotive



At Weber Automotive, we understand that hearing the words, "You need to rebuild your transmission," can cause a feeling of dread. Such a process is not usually associated with a low-cost fix, but rest assured, we're here to support you throughout the process.


In these situations, it's crucial to ask the right questions, such as:

•    What specifically happened to my transmission?

•    What caused this issue?

•    What options do I have for resolving this?


For anyone with a solid understanding of transmissions, these questions should be easily answerable. The options might include repairing the existing transmission, rebuilding it, installing a new one, or replacing it with a used model.

Distinguishing between repair and rebuild can be confusing. When we talk about a 'repair,' we refer to addressing specific parts of the transmission that might have gone bad, often electronic components that can be replaced while the transmission is still in the vehicle. 'Rebuilding,' on the other hand, involves disassembling the entire transmission, repairing or replacing all components, and then reassembling it.

Even newer transmissions, like the continuously variable transmissions (CVTs), can be repaired or replaced. However, given their complexity, often the best solution is to revert to the manufacturer for a new one.

At Weber Automotive, we pride ourselves on our comprehensive three-year, 36,000-mile warranty on all our services, which outperforms the typical one-year, 12,000-mile warranties offered by many manufacturers.

Lastly, remember, getting a second opinion is always a good idea. Just as in medicine, it's vital in auto repair, especially when a significant investment like a transmission rebuild is on the line.
