Transmission Rebuild Kits

Every vehicle has a transmission. It may be an automatic transmission or a manual transmission but either way they keep the car driving and are responsible for the changing of gears. The transmission works with the engine to send power to the wheels. The transmission runs on RPM's which means revolutions per minute. When the RPM’s hit a certain range the transmission is responsible for delivering the power to the wheels to make the car move. While doing this it must maintain the RPM’s so they do not rise above a certain point. The transmission is also in charge of allowing the car to be in a neutral position, a park position and drive in reverse. When the car is in park the transmission locks so that the wheels can no longer move. When it is time to reverse the transmission sends power to the wheels causing them to roll in the opposite direction than in the driving gear.

If you drive an automatic vehicle and the transmission goes out you can have the transmission rebuilt by a mechanic or you may purchase a transmission rebuild kit and try to rebuild the transmission on your own. This is not a job for the inexperienced however since working on a car's transmission is very complicated and takes much time and skill. If you are a mechanic or enjoy working on cars and have experience with a transmission then you may be interested in purchasing the transmission kit and getting started working on rebuilding your transmission as soon as possible.

Purchasing a transmission rebuild kit is a very important part of the transmission rebuilding process. Finding the right transmission parts to service your transmission is necessary in order to get the transmission back to working order. Having your transmission rebuilt in an auto shop is going to cost you a lot of money for both labor and the parts that they will order for your car. However if you decide to rebuild the transmission on your own or to buy the parts separately then pay a mechanic to do the work for you, you can save yourself a great deal of money. Although you can purchase individual parts for the transmission separately you can save yourself a lot of hassle by purchasing the entire transmission kit to prevent from having to by more parts later down the road. By replacing all the transmission parts at once you know you should not have to replace any of the parts again in the future. Most transmission kits come with gaskets, bands, clutches, seals, bushings, washers, and filters. Some kits may come with more or less of these parts depending on the kit.

You can find many transmission rebuilding kits online through various websites. There a also varying prices depending on the type of kit you purchase. For those who are rebuilding a transmission in order to upgrade for a racing vehicle then you may want a certain type of transmission rebuild kit that may contain different components than the average transmission kit would. Also if you have an older model car, jeep, suv or van you may need to find a kit that contains parts specifically for your model car.

Before taking your transmission apart you need to pay close attention to how all the components work and fit back together. Once you have all the parts laid out you will realize just how many pieces have to be put back in place. Make sure you thoroughly understand the transmission rebuilding process or have an experienced person around to help. Rebuilding the transmission may take you many long hours to finish but your car will thank you for it in the long run.
