Does my transmission need to be rebuilt?


Your vehicle's transmission is composed of numerous moving parts that work in unison to transfer power to wheels. When a symptom of transmission trouble becomes apparent, you'll want to be proactive about addressing it. If you delay, the issue could soon escalate to the point that costly repairs are needed. Or, you may even need a full-on rebuild. In a situation where the repair/rebuild costs are exorbitant, it may make more financial sense to just go ahead install a transmission that has already been expertly rebuilt. At Total Transmission Supply, we provide high-quality rebuilt transmissions for every manufacturer.

Signs that You Need a Transmission Rebuild

A sign of serious transmission trouble is that your car won't shift into a specific gear---or into any gear whatsoever. This could mean you're dealing with worn-out gear teeth that are preventing your transmission from properly engaging. Abnormal sounds that come from your transmission could also mean that you need a rebuild. A grinding sound while in neutral is one indication of potentially serious transmission trouble. In some cases, this issue can be resolved with a transmission flush. However, there is also a chance that this is a symptom of a more complicated problem such as worn-out bearings or reverse idler gear trouble. Another reason that transmissions sometimes need to be rebuilt is that they suffer damage from overheating. Your transmission could be overheating if you notice an odor like burnt plastic, which suggests that transmission fluid is burning.

If your car is leaking transmission fluid, you'll want to fix the problem ASAP. Unaddressed transmission fluid leaks can lead to damage that necessitates a rebuild. Common sources of transmission fluid leaks include falling seals, damaged transmission lines, and a worn-out transmission pan gasket.
