"What is a remanufactured Transmission?

We take old transmissions from our shops and remanufacture them to OEM or better specifications. One way to look at it, we "pre-rebuild" transmissions and keep them in stock ready when our customers need them for a quick exchange.

This eliminates the need to guess at the cost of rebuilding your transmission and not really knowing how much damage it has until it is out of your vehicle, and apart on the bench.

At this point, a rebuild requires ordering and replacing worn or broken parts. The time to do this can take a week or more depending on the transmission. In contrast, our remanufactured transmissions have ALL the worn parts replaced, not just the failed or damaged ones.

A remanufactured transmission saves you time. A lot of time.

At the factory, we test every transmission on a dynomometer to know it performs exactly as it should.

Installing an in-stock remanufactured transmission can take as little as one day and you will have the peace-of-mind knowing the transmission was fully tested before it ever made it to our warehouse.
