A transmission is a critical part of your vehicle. With a definite lifespan, the wear and tear components of your transmission need to be replaced after prolonged usage. Previously I made an introduction about J Powertrain, a specialist in automatic transmission rebuilding, here.
At J Powertrain, rebuilding an automatic transmission essentially begins with a detailed diagnosis of your gearbox. After which, the automatic transmission will be completely dismantled. The components will then be chemically cleaned and put through a thorough inspection by their highly trained technicians in a clean room facility. The entire process concludes with the assembly of your newly refurbished gearbox. (I go behind the scenes with J Powertrain in Part 3.)
But what are the advantages of rebuilding your gearbox?
Clean Room Facility
Here are some benefits:
1) Renewal and extension of transmission life
Rebuilding your gearbox allows it to restore to its optimal operation efficiency and enhance its reliability, both of which lead to an extended lifespan for your automatic transmission.
2) Quality service
A transmission rebuild does not simply mean installing another gearbox into your vehicle. At J Powertrain, they are rebuilding your automatic transmission, cleaning and replacing the parts which depreciate over time.
3) Lower-cost alternative
A transmission rebuild, however major, will probably still be cheaper than getting a brand new transmission to replace your worn-out or damaged gearbox.
A transmission rebuild replaces only parts that are worn or damaged. As such, it exemplifies the notion of environmental friendliness through recycling and reducing wastage.
A transmission rebuild is a considerable task. Before you start worrying about costs, what you can do is to send your car for an evaluation to see the level of work that is needed to be done. It might require only the replacement of certain parts and components and not an entire overhaul.
J Powertrain has been in the business since 1982. It specialises in the rebuilding of automatic transmission and continuous variable transmission (CVT) for all makes and models of passenger and light commercial vehicles.
Other services they offer include:
- Automatic transmission maintenance and evaluation services
- Torque convertor rebuilding
For each rebuild, a one-year warranty (or 40,000km mileage, whichever comes first) is included.
