Your transmission is shot, which means that you have a big decision to make: rebuild it or replace it. This isn’t the easiest decision to make, so we have a list of things for you to look at. You can make an educated decision about your transmission to get your truck back on the road.
How badly is your transmission damaged? This is one of the most important (and one of the most expensive) parts that can go wrong with your diesel truck. Diagnostics can be run to let you know just what is wrong with it. You may be beyond a basic repair, which means that you’re replacing the bare minimum number of parts.
It’s best to avoid a “repair” when things are bad because it could mean that it’s a never-ending list of repairs that need to be made. To stay out of the repair shop for a while, your best bet is a rebuild.
Replacing your transmission is going to be the most expensive option. If you have the money to throw at your truck, it might be an option to consider. One of the reasons why you’re spending this is to ensure that everything is being replaced. Particularly if the transmission is so damaged that it will even be costly for a rebuild, it might be the route to take.
When you choose a rebuild, it’s not being done in a factory setting. You can ensure that you know the integrity of every gasket, seal, and band that is going into it. If there are certain OEM brands that you want to be used, it can be taken care of with a rebuild. You don’t get a say when a factory technician provides a replacement.
In most instances, a rebuild is going to be the best bet for you. At JD Diagnostics, we’re here to help you every step of the way. Send us a message and we can work to get you a free quote.
