Rebuilt Diesel Transmission – Centennial, Colorado

A rebuilt transmission is one where the transmission is disassembled and examined, worn or damaged parts are replaced (generally referred to as “hard harts”) and afterwards reassembled to factory specifications, along with new gaskets, seals, clutches and bands. These are commonly referred to as “soft parts”.

Almost all transmissions now have electrical parts that need to be tested as well. Some of the electrical parts are inside the transmission and some of the electrical parts are attached on the outside of the transmission. The term “rebuilt” is typically used in a shop setting where the customer’s transmission is removed from the car, rebuilt and afterwards reinstalled. It is a custom procedure carried out by a specialist. Other terminologies you may hear that have the same meaning are “refurbished, reconditioned or overhauled”, they have the same meaning.

Here at Roadrunner we are up to date on all specific updates for your diesel transmission. A lot of testing and technology goes in to the rebuilding of a diesel transmission repair. Our objective with each rebuild is to make it work as well, if not better than the new one.

Repair Diesel Transmission

A repaired transmission is one where a specific component is replaced or fixed. For example, if an input shaft broke or a solenoid failed those parts could be replaced without rebuilding the entire transmission. This includes instances where a transmission may have a leak. Often times a leak may be coming from a place on the transmission that does not call for the transmission to be removed to replace the seal. A transmission can easily leak from many different places. Only an undercar inspection done by a trained transmission specialist can determine which seal is leaking. It may even be determined that a cooling line running from the radiator to your transmission may be leaking. These lines can easily be repaired or replaced.

There are many circumstances where a transmission repair can be done and you are not in a rebuild situation. A free road test, computer scan and lift evaluation by a trained transmission specialist will be able to determine if an external repair can be done to correct the problem. If everything externally looks good an internal inspection of the transmission may be needed to determine the precise amount of damage and source of the problem.
