All Transmissions Include:
If you're in need of a new transmission, you should consider purchasing a used one. A used transmission is cheap and won't break the bank. However, beware that the transmission may have worn internal components, so you should also check the warranty. If it's not covered, you'll be out of luck. Moreover, a used transmission may not come with a warranty, so you'll be out of luck for a long time.
Buying a used transmission is another option, but remember that it will be very expensive. Even if you do find a used transmission at a good price, it might have the same issues you'd have if you tried to repair it yourself. Also, you'll only get a 30 day warranty, which is worthless if you can't fix the problem yourself.
A rebuilt transmission is a better option, but you have to make sure you get a top-notch product. While the rebuilder may have upgraded the parts, there's no guarantee they'll fix all the flaws in the factory. Besides, the warranty may only be valid at the shop that actually built the transmission. In addition, a remanufactured transmission usually comes with a nationwide unlimited mileage warranty.
You can also buy a used transmission from a junkyard, but be careful because the one you buy from a junkyard may have problems as well. The best option is a rebuilt 4L60E transmission that is guaranteed for 30 days. The problem is that a rebuilt transmission may have the same problems as the original, and the warranty from the junkyard may only cover the installation costs and parts.
The remanufactured transmission is cheaper than a used one. Nevertheless, you should not be tempted to buy a remanufactured transmission from a junkyard because it may have the same problems as the one you'll try to fix. The warranty, in addition to being unsatisfactory, may not cover the replacement or installation fees.
A remanufactured transmission may be the best choice if you're on a budget. However, a remanufactured transmission might come with some flaws, and you may want to look for a used one with a warranty. But the price is also very high. The best thing to do is to find a dealership with a reputation for reliability and excellent customer service.
A remanufactured transmission is a good way to save money. The SST remanufactured transmission is designed with an upgraded aluminum 1-2 accumulator piston and a remanufactured valve body. It features a new ring gear and a remanufacture is more affordable than a remanufactured model.
