Transmission repair questions and answers.
Do I need a new transmission?
Often when we diagnose transmission problems we find that only certain components need replacing and the problem could be fixed without a replacing the transmission. When we get your car or truck into our Palm Bay transmission shop we will diagnose the problem and in many cases minor repairs can be made and such as adding more fluid, replacing the oil cooling thermostat, replacing the drive shaft or yoke, or it could be an electrical connection or a faulty solenoid. We provide you with a repair to address the problem if replacing the transmission is not needed. Some shops will just replace your transmission transmission and tell you that it is the best option, but that will cost you a lot more than if you just address what caused the problem. South Florida Transmission, your Palm Bay Transmissions Repair Shop often gets second opinion customers where repairs are much less than were quoted elsewhere.
How much does transmission repair cost?
You won’t ever pay for repairs that your vehicle doesn’t need. Most do not need a new transmission. If we don’t need to rebuild or install a new transmission into your automobile our certified technicians will identify only the parts that need to be replaced. Our labor rates are the lowest in the area. So the labor and the cost of parts is all you pay for. We offer free towing and free rides to our shop. The total cost is for labor and parts which depends on the make and model and year of your automobile.
