Transmission Replacement Notes

The basic philosophy here is just like a the engine replace. Transmissions are assumed to be good for the 'life time' of the vehicle and are basically maintenance free for the most part if the transmission fluid flush is performed at suggested intervals.

Note - Transmission Fluid Flush also consists of replacing the Transmission Oil filter. Some times you may end up with bad transmission for several reasons :-

1.) Poor design

2.) Poor Workmanship

3.) Bad maintenance

4.) Running on low transmission oil due to a leak.


To add to this, automatic transmissions are more notorious for going bad than manual ones. So if you find yourself in a situation that you need a new Transmission , you can either decide to rebuild it yourself or purchase a used/rebuild one. The process should be similar to that discussed in the Engine Replace section.
