ASE Certified Transmission Mechanics
When transmission problems are caught in their earliest stages, drivers can often avoid a full transmission rebuild. With the proper maintenance, modern transmissions generally last for hundreds of thousands of miles. Unfortunately, the lifespan of a transmission is determined by dozens of factors including the vehicle’s manufacturer and the type of driving that is taking place. An experienced transmission mechanic will inspect every inch of the powertrain to determine exactly what is taking place. Once a full and thorough inspection has taken place, a rebuild will be necessary if a majority of the parts are worn out or damaged, preventing the transmission from fully functioning.
Transmission Rebuild vs Transmission Replacement
A transmission rebuild is significantly less expensive than a complete replacement, as a transmission replacement is one of the most expensive car repairs. Rebuilding a transmission is a complex project that drivers should never leave to inexperienced or amateur mechanics. The transmission is one of the most important components of a vehicle, and any ongoing damage could result in expensive issues down the road. ASE certified mechanics have the tools and training that will be needed to quickly diagnose transmission problems and then come up with long-term solutions.
