Used Transmissions from Bessler Auto Parts

Most vehicle owners fear the day their transmission goes. Repairs can be costly, and it’s hard to find new transmissions since they’re mainly designed for vehicles in production. Your options include finding used transmission parts, a completely intact used system, or a rebuilt or remanufactured transmission.

Used transmissions From Bessler Auto PartsHow to Find the Best Used Transmission
Just because you’re replacing the entire system, that doesn’t mean there won’t be parts with some wear. Rebuilt transmissions may still have parts within acceptable wear limits. They may be fine for a while, but will eventually fail. One of the most cost-effective options is to install a used system, which may be obtained from a car that was in relatively good condition.

Finding the best system means identifying one without damage or excessive wear. Also consider the previous car’s mileage, the failure that occurred, and the type of car/transmission you need to install. Reliability is a major consideration since you don’t want to get stuck or have any other kind of failure over the short term.

Reasons to Buy a Used Transmission
Replacing your transmission can help you avoid buying a new car or the expenses of a new transmission, which can cost as much as an engine. The main benefit is cost savings, but you also save time with options such as a rebuild, which is often completed in a few days. You also potentially restore the transmission to its original specifications and efficiency, so you get the most value and performance.

Rebuilt Transmissions for Sale
Rebuilt transmissions are removed from the original vehicle, disassembled, inspected, and cleaned. All worn or damaged parts are replaced. The system also receives new seals, gaskets, bands, and clutches. Although the ultimate quality depends on the shop, all broken/worn parts are replaced, and the cost of a rebuilt transmission for sale is generally less than installing remanufactured transmissions.

Remanufactured Transmissions for Sale
An alternative option is to obtain a remanufactured transmission system. A “reman” is overhauled in a factory rather than a shop, by technicians experienced with this kind of work. The work is completed by individuals dedicated to disassembly and inspection, while others clean it, and another team does the restoration. Parts out of specification are replaced, and new components meeting the manufacturer’s standards are installed.

Reassembled on an assembly line, the system is quality checked and tested using a dynamometer. When finished, the transmission is in close to new condition and comes with a parts and labor warranty.
