In a complete overhaul (also known as rebuilding a transmission), the transmission is removed from the vehicle and completely disassembled with the parts laid out on a workbench. Each part is inspected for wear and damage and then either cleaned in a special cleaning solution, or replaced with another part depending on its condition. Parts that have friction surfaces, such as bands, clutches, seals, and gaskets are replaced as well as the torque converter. Technical service bulletins are checked to see if the auto manufacturer recommends any modifications to correct design defects that may have been discovered after the transmission was built. Automobile manufacturers often make upgrade kits available to transmission shops to resolve these defects.

What is included in a transmission rebuild?
A transmission is a machine used in a power transmission system that provides controlled application of power.
A transmission rebuild is a common choice for those who want to avoid paying the high-cost to replace the worn-out or damaged vehicle’s transmission with a new one. Going for a new transmission can cost you same as buying a new engine for the car. Thus, for the ones on shoestring budget or the ones who want to avoid making payments for the full price of a brand new vehicle transmission go ahead with a rebuild.
A reconditioned transmission involves the removal and inspection of a vehicle’s transmission along with replacement or refurbishment of parts that are severely damaged or worn out transmission parts.
All vehicles have a transmission that is an intricate mechanical system comprising of a variety of gears, bands, pumps, and rotors that all work harmoniously to create optimum transmission operation. Rebuilding it involves a careful inspection of all the main parts of the automobile transmission. After a thorough examination of the parts that are majorly damaged or are in the condition that cannot be repaired, they are replaced. In case of replacement, it is done with refurbished or reconditioned part. Thus, transmission rebuild aims to restore a vehicle transmission to optimum function and efficiency without replacing it entirely.
How to do that?
The very first aspect of a transmission rebuild is to diagnose the cause of the problem which will help you in deciding whether to go forward with process or not.
Dismantle the transmission after taking it out from the vehicle
- Cleaning it chemically
- Replace all the seals, gaskets, and wonky parts with new ones.
- Perform the required electrical repairs.
- Use updated components to enhance the performance of your transmission
- Re-install the transmission back into the vehicle, and you are good to go.
Benefits of a refurbished transmission:
If one selects a vehicle transmission rebuild over a transmission replacement, it projects many benefits. Cost saving, the first or the most significant advantage, since it is a low-cost alternative as compared to a brand new transmission. Apart from being an inexpensive alternative, it is also a time-saving alternative. Also, a transmission rebuild replaces only those parts of the vehicle that are damaged or worn out thus there is no scope of overkill that comes from replacing a transmission that is in good form.
A transmission rebuild has the ability to restore a vehicle’s transmission to peak operational efficiency and to result in long-lasting transmission. A thorough and effective inclusive transmission rebuild can lead the vehicle to be driven for thousands and thousands of miles. And, in some cases, the whole lifetime of the vehicle.
The quality of the products used and the skill of the transmission mechanic accomplishing the transmission rebuild and the thoroughness of the repair are important factors affecting the extent of life of a rebuilt transmission. https://deltaautocare.com
