If your car is having transmission problems, there are several factors involved in making the decision to repair, rebuild, or replace. First and foremost — it is worth fixing? Transmissions are one of the most expensive repairs that you can have done on your vehicle. The number of miles that you have on your vehicle should play an important part in the decision process. Statistically speaking, the more miles you have on your car, the more likely it is that the problem with the transmission is the result of a failure of one or more of its internal parts. That means a rebuilt or a new transmission.
If problems are discovered early on, the solution may involve minor repairs vs. having to have a rebuilt or a new transmission. These types of problems include low levels of transmission fluid which can be caused by a leak due to a break in the pan gasket or an axle leak. Another less costly repair involves replacing a transmission solenoid which is responsible for controlling the flow of transmission fluid. Having the transmission flushed as part of your car's routine maintenance can really help extend its life and the life of your car.
Taking care of these minor problems before they can turn into a major issue go a long way to decreasing the chance that you'll need a transmission rebuild or a new transmission.
