Experienced mechanics share their insights in answering this question :
YourMechanic does not offer transmission replacement as a service due to the limitations of our technicians being mobile. I suggest you shop around. Locate a couple of local transmission specialists and get quotes. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. You want to know: How long the warranty is, is it a parts and labor warranty, and do they rebuild the transmission them selves or do they purchase remanufactured transmissions from another party. If they do purchase them elsewhere, don’t be afraid to ask who the supplier is and look into their reputation as well. You may even want to try a local Mercedes dealership. They may be more expensive but their replacement transmission are generally factory rebuilt. NOTE: With some Mercedes models, the transmission control module – the brains that control the transmission – may need to be replaced as well. They are sometimes matched to one another so a replacement transmission may not function with the existing control module, requiring a matched one to be installed.

Is replacing the transmission on a 1988 Toyota Corolla fx hatchback worth it? And can I replace transmission with a 1990 corolla?
ANSWER : Hi there. As long as the engines in the two Toyota’s are identical in size and configuration, the compatibility of the two transmissions should work, however there are some risks with swapping out a transmission on an older vehicle like your 88 Corolla. The correct way to complete this service is also installing new drive axles and supporting hardware within the driveline. However, the head gasket repair is often a trap, as the reason most head gaskets fail is due to an overheating issue, which typically damaged the cylinder head itself, internal components like pistons, connecting rods and more. If finding a newer car is not in the cards as the moment, the best investment would be the transmission swap.

2013 Ford Focus Transmission Issue. Is it worth keeping the car?
ANSWER : Hi There,
This is a known issue in this generation Ford Focus and some Fiestas with the "Power Shift" transmission and there have been numerous recalls and lawsuits. Although, it is would be difficult to determine how much longer your transmission will last given the fact that you have many new parts, I would not recommend junking the car as it may still provide some valuable life left for you. I would recommend taking it to the dealer to see if these parts may be covered under the recall.

Car has CVT transmission, can’t afford to replace, can I just replace the entire motor with a used one with different trans?
ANSWER : Hello. If you wanted to replace the motor and transmission, you would have other problems like the wire harnesses and ECM modules among other problems to do the swap correctly. You may be better off replacing the transmission with a remanufactured one. A job like this would be expensive either way, so you may also want to consider whether you want to invest more money in this car or whether you should start looking at other options.

There is automatic transmission fluid in a manual transmission. Is it okay to leave or do I need manual transmission fluid?
ANSWER : This would depend on what the manufacturer recommends. Many manual transmissions do take automatic transmission fluid. If your transmission has ATF in it, it is very likely that it is supposed to have that in there. If not, it is likely that the transmission would not function properly with the wrong fluid. Many manual transmissions will also take engine oil as a lubricant. The best way to know for sure is to check your owner’s manual or call your local General Motors dealership to inquire.

I have a jeep Cherokee 89 and I replace the transmission lines but the new ones won’t fit into the transmission the right clips ar
ANSWER : During different years the transmission lines had different types of ends that go into the radiator. If you have just nipples on the lines, then get the proper adapters from the parts store to match them and they will screw into the radiator to attach the lines. You may need to take a picture of the line you have and get measurements of line size 5/16 OD in most cases. Get a picture of the radiator connection you have now. You may need to just change the adapters in the radiator.

Do i need to replace the receiver drier and/or the expansion valve when replacing the condenser assembly?
ANSWER : Replacing the system drier is absolutely essential. If the system has been open to the atmosphere (due to the leak in the condenser), the desiccant in the drier has been fully saturated with moisture. As far as the expansion valve, replacement is not normally implicated in a leak repair, in your case a leak in the condenser. To justify replacing the expansion valve, there would have to have been a diagnostic performed which proved a fault. If no diagnostic was performed, and there is no evidence of a fault, then it is pointless to replace the valve. But, again, drier replacement is absolutely essential. To add the drier to your order, you can simply add a note to the mechanic in your order and/or add it as a service (you will see a link that you can click on to "add services" or write in specific services). If you have further questions or concerns, do not hesitate to re-contact YourMechanic as we are always here to help you.

My dodge 2010 grand caravan is making a loud whining noise, I’m sure its the transmission after doing research, do you think this can be fixed without replacing it?
ANSWER : Hello. In order to determine if the transmission needs to be replaced, a proper diagnosis would be required. Even if the whining noise sounds similar to that in the video, it can still be possible that the issue is caused by something else. I would recommend having a professional technician diagnose the noise, as a replacement transmission is likely a very expensive repair.
