Problems with your car's transmission are probably one of the bigger repair issues that you'll face. When your car's transmission starts to exhibit problems or stops working altogether, you're often facing a choice of having it repaired or replacing it with a new or rebuilt transmission. Generally speaking, replacing your car's transmission is the most cost–effective option.

Replace or rebuild?
Deciding whether to replace your entire transmission or to rebuild your existing transmission depends on a number of factors. One of the most important factors to consider is the age and mileage of your car and the type of car that you own — automatic vs. manual transmission. Automatic transmissions can generally fail between 80,0000 and 150,000 miles while manual transmissions can fail sooner depending on the type of driver you are, ie. if you "ride" the clutch. Both types of transmissions can start to have problems if you neglect routine maintenance.
Another factor to consider is the number of cylinders that the engine has. Recent studies by J.D. Power and Associates have found that 4 cylinder engines seem to exhibit more transmission problems when compared to V8 and 6 cylinder engines.
It's important to consult with an automotive repair shop that specializes in transmissions before making a decision. For transmission repair in San Diego, bring your car to Transmasters. Our mechanics have both the training and experience necessary to analyze the problem and determine whether replacing your car's transmission is the right choice for you.
