What is the average cost to rebuild a transmission?
Keeping this in view, is it cheaper to rebuild or replace a transmission?
A transmission replace is the most expensive option when fixing your transmission. This is an option if the transmission is too damaged to even consider a rebuild. One thing to keep in mind with a replace is the transmission is redone in a factory setting.
Beside above, is it worth fixing a transmission? If your vehicle is 20+ years old and has over 275k miles on it, then the cost of repair or replacement is most likely higher than the value of the vehicle. In this case, it's typically not worth getting the car fixed unless it holds significant sentimental value.
In this regard, how many hours does it take to rebuild a transmission?
A big portion of any transmission replacement or rebuild is the labor cost. It's at least six hours to remove and install a transmission, often twice that.
Are Rebuilt transmissions reliable?
The quality of a rebuilt transmission is without a doubt reliable. This is because during the disassembling process, each part is removed and inspected for possible wear in future. If a part is found to be unreliable, it is replaced. With a used transmission, there is no guarantee of the quality.
