Do you need to make a decision about your transmission?

The transmission is an important part of any vehicle. It must be kept in optimal condition all year round. If you don’t take care of your transmission your vehicle will stop working. The average person has two options when it comes to their vehicle’s transmission. Either they can choose a new transmission, or have your old one rebuilt.

The question most people have is which option is best?

At Mike’s Tech Transmission, we’ll guide you through the process. Our experienced ASE certified technicians will provide an insight into all of your available choices so that you can make an informed decision.

Your Transmission Choices

  • Transmission Diagnostics
  • Transmission Repair
  • New Transmission
  • Transmission Rebuild

New Transmission

Let’s start with the new transmission. This is the option most people consider when their transmission fails. Many people like the idea of buying “new”. While an untouched, brand new, well-designed transmission is wonderful, it may not be the right choice for you or your vehicle.


  • Longer Durability
  • It’s Brand New
  • Simple Decision


  • Costly
  • New Does Not Mean It Was Made Yesterday (New can have outdated parts)
  • May Need Additional Work to Get it to Harmonize With the Engine

There are many pros and cons associated with a new transmission.

Our team will review the details for you. We’ll illustrate the benefits of a new transmission and what it will do for you. This is something we do to ensure our clients understand how things work.

A new transmission is valuable, so you should not ignore this choice in favor of a rebuild. For those who want a new transmission, this might be the best choice. Look into the details of this choice and make sure your budget is in place. This will help you understand which option will work best.

Those deciding to get a new transmission should trust that the techs at Mike’s Tech Transmission are well-qualified and will harmonize the transmission into place.

Rebuild the Old Transmission

Should you get a rebuild? This is when a vehicle’s current transmission (which is not working) is removed from the vehicle and rebuilt. The idea is to fix what’s working and repair what’s broken. The transmission is going to be brought back into shape with some tweaking.


  • Cost-Effective In Some Cases
  • Can Use New Parts for a Modern Rebuild
  • Proven to be Harmonized with an Engine
  • Improves What’s Lagging


  • Old Transmission is Still an “Old” Transmission
  • Might Lead to Other Parts Dying Later On
  • Require Patience

These are the pros and cons of rebuilding your transmission and getting it back in shape.

At Mike’s Tech Transmission, we sit down to explain the details of a rebuild to the vehicle owner. This makes it easier to make the right decision. The main goal is to get the car running, as it did before. The best parts and proper techniques should be implemented.
