When It Comes To Transmissions, ‘Rebuilt’ Is a Term You Should Know

Being that it applies to transmission repair, the term “rebuilt” is term you should become familiar with. Despite the fact that the average transmission has over 300 parts, replacing only a few internal parts can label a transmission as “rebuilt”. In the state of Texas, the terms “rebuilt”, “overhauled” or “reconditioned” may be used if the number of parts replaced is equal to two or more. Be sure to ask if the parts are new, reconditioned or used and what exactly is being replaced for the quoted price.

First of all, check your gas cap! Believe it or not, it’s been estimated that nearly 17% of cars on the road have broken or missing gas caps. What’s the big deal? Escaping fumes not only hurt fuel economy but release smog-causing compounds into the air.

While you’re at it, slow down. For every 5 mph you reduce highway speed, you can reduce fuel consumption by 7%. Avoiding jack-rabbit starts and stops will improve fuel economy as well. Don’t believe it? Lousy driving on the highway can add as much as one-third to your gas bill.

Choosing a Transmission Specialist

When you choose a transmission specialist, be sure you know exactly what work you are authorizing (i.e. estimate, internal or external diagnosis, or transmission repair).

If asked, the technician should be willing to show you the damaged parts and explain the repair work. Also, ask for a damaged-parts report and a breakdown of the work that was done. If you want to inspect the damaged parts pulled from the transmission, be sure to ask the mechanic when you authorize the work, not after. As with any contract, make sure you understand all aspects of the work. If you give your authorization over the phone, understand exactly what work you are approving. Phone authorization is a binding commitment.

What To Look For

  • Is the shop a member of the Better Business Bureau? The Bureau can give you the company’s history in dealing with customers?
  • Is the company a member of any transmission groups, such as the Automatic Transmission Rebuilder Association (ATRA) or Automatic Service Association (ASA), or is it part of a national franchise that offers
    training programs to keep technicians up-to-date on new technology?
  • Do they participate in continuing education and training programs?
  • Is the shop well-equipped with the proper diagnostic tools for your vehicle? One of the easiest things to look for is the hydraulic lifts needed to raise your car?
  • Is the shop clean and professional looking? Does it appear to be well-run?
