For some shops, the terms “repair,” “rebuild,” and “replace” all mean the same thing when it comes to your transmission. To them, it basically means you’re going to spend a lot of money… whether you need to or not.
It doesn’t have to be that way, because many transmission problems are the result of something that doesn’t really require a complete rebuild or replacement. But that means that the technicians working on your car have to understand how the transmission works, and how to fix it when it stops working.
