Is your car, truck, or SUV experiencing transmission failure? At T&A Truck Specialist, Inc in Tampa, FL, we’re here to help. You have a variety of options as to how to handle your failed transmission and knowing your options will help you to make an informed decision.

Fix - Depending on the issue, simply repairing the transmission may be an option. However, this route should be taken with caution - for many repairs, the process is time-consuming, and there’s no guarantee that something else won’t break soon. If one part is worn out, there’s a good chance that others are as well, and there’s a danger of contamination from whatever failed harming other components in the not so distant future. Be sure to heed your technicians' recommendations when proceeding with transmission work.

Rebuild - Transmission shops often specialize in building transmissions - they employ expert builders, who are dedicated to the complex art of rebuilding a transmission. Typically, this route will save you some money over replacing a transmission entirely, and the transmission will come with some kind of warranty, depending on who does the build. In most cases, it takes about a week to get your vehicle back, depending on how busy the shop is at the moment.

Replace - Simply replacing the transmission is the least time-consuming option. There are a few things to take into account here - most shops won’t recommend replacing a failed transmission with a used unit since there’s no way to tell what condition a used transmission is really in, or how long it will last. Remanufactured or new units are also an option, and here you’ll want to consider the quality of the product you’re installing. Transmissions aren’t easy to build, after all - and it’s important that you find one that has had the original flaws worked out, so the same thing doesn’t happen to this one down the road. New and reman transmissions also offer the best warranty. Each situation is different. The type of vehicle, cause of failure, cost of the repair, and how much time the vehicle will be down are all important factors. Just remember, the cheapest option is only the cheapest if you don’t end up having to do the job twice.

We’ll help you decide which option is best for your specific circumstance. No matter your vehicle repair or maintenance needs, we’ve got you covered. For the best service shop in Tampa, FL, call or stop by T&A Truck Specialist, Inc today.
