    Why not just install a shift kit instead of ripping people off. Transmission repairs are crooks.

    Would you pay this woman to build your transmission?

    So I got My 2001 Infinity QX4 4WD Transmission rebuilt by a local transmission expert for $1900 including tax. It running fine as of today. But I did not see all the old parts after it was done because they had dumped them in the dumpster ..I did get a receipt with the warranty of 12 months or 12k miles. I did not see on it all the new parts that were used to rebuild it. My question, is this normal for a transmission shop to do? or do some shops hide information from customers like me. I was told that I got a new torque converter and all parts new. My S U V is running great but I have no way of knowing the truth. I am taking the owners word. He mention that he had to order 2 different years kits to make one because my 2001 was and odd year model. He said the drum inside was bad. So I hope I do not have any issues . For anyone that is paying for the transmission rebuild make sure you ask to see the old parts and have them printed on the invoice. I have faith nothing bad is going to happen.

    So much misinformation... remanufactured is far better than rebuilt a lot more components are replaced for one... two all engineering flaws are fixed... three usually have a better warranty... streetsmart transmission online is the way to go... rebuilt costs far more and only uses a repair kit...street smart transmission is remanufactured with a 3 year unlimited mile warranty

    She just described a reman as an rebuilt ammco transmission. Lol. Lies
    A reman is a rebuild just like she said and has updated engineering to correct failures and has to pass OEM requirements. Difference with rebuilt is a guy replaces all the parts on a bench in any shop in the world and said mechanic might do many different things daily, not just rebuilding transmissions.
    A reman is rebuilt with updated re engineered parts and certified with OEM requirements and typically carries a better warranty verses rebuilt and usually rebuilt in a factory by techs that do it all day long every day, sometimes its the same factory where new is built.
    Be friends with a mechanic people so these scam artists dont fool you.
    Reman is better all day every day than some rebuilt trans ammco put outs. Laughable.

    Youre wrong. Manufacturer's do make transmission you can buy from them brand new.

    I have a 2005 Honda inspire with transmission problems I’m not sure if buying an used transmission will be better or rebuild it

    why are transmission so expensive through you guys? i paid 4000.00 for rebuilt tranny and it still slips, and another 4500.00 for cooling system and it is still overheating, and the shop i got work done, refuses to fix anything

      Ammco is a scam, they are a national chain that caters towards the un educated soccer moms and old ladies.

    The best option is to buy a remanufacture tranny not a rebuild. She isn't telling you the truth.

    Fuck AAMCO and all the other chain repair shops. Always trying to upsell, scare the (ignorant) customer, and charge a lot more than an independent shop. Find a reputable independent shop and take your car there.

    I thought rebuilt was only replacing the failing part and maybe seals and remanufactured gets the trans fotally disassembled and all known bad parts are replaced

      Jeff Sol re manufactured means the original manufacturer rebuilt it, so there's a possibility that it was rebuilt using original factory parts and not updated improved parts.

      You are right. Rebuilt transmission is just replacing the bad part. Remanufactured is completely disassembled and all the parts are cleaned and worn parts are replaced
