Mopar Transmission Replacement Service

Route 18 CDJR Transmission Replacement

Transmissions do not often go bad, but when they do it is an expensive repair. Fortunately, there are some options available that could save you some money. The age of your vehicle is also a consideration when making choices about transmission replacement. Certified technicians at Route 18 Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in East Brunswick, NJ can help you make the best choice for your automobile. We are a short drive from New Brunswick, Edison, Franklin Township, and Woodbridge Township.

Replacement Options

When you have to replace your transmission, here are your options:

  • Buying a new one from the factory is the most expensive option, and is probably the best option for a newer car or one that has high value.
  • Buying a used one from a junkyard is the cheapest, but you are taking a risk as there is no way to really know the condition and often there is no warranty. This is a solid option for older vehicles with little value.
  • Buying a rebuilt one is a good option and it will be like-new, but it is almost as costly as a new one. It will be at the factory specifications.
  • Rebuilding the one already in your car is often the best option, and is in the middle of the options as far as price. Only the parts that need replacing are replaced and is the least disruptive for your car.

Signs of a Bad Transmission

Transmissions do not often go bad suddenly. There are usually warning signs. Feeling the transmission slip as it shifts, or feeling the car jerk when it shifts are signs something is wrong with the transmission. Fluid leaks are another sign something is going on, so pay attention to what goes on under your vehicle. Often the reverse is the first gear to go out, so if your vehicle suddenly will not go backward, that is a sign you are going to need a new transmission sooner than later.

Don't Ignore the Signs

Like most parts of your car, problems will not get better on their own and will get progressively worse. If the transmission does go out completely you will be stranded with a car that will not move. At the first signs of trouble. bring your car to us and let us do an inspection. You may relax in our comfortable waiting area while we determine what needs to be done.
