Should I repair or replace my transmission and which is more cost effective?

Transmission repair entails that your current transmission will be diagnosed and the damaged/worn parts will be repaired or replaced and a transmission replace occurs when your old transmission is swapped with a new or refurbished transmission. It is best to do a transmission repair when there are minor issues with the transmission or with parts of the transmission and if it is cheaper to repair than to is best to do a transmission replace when the whole transmission is failing or when the transmission is old because in this case when you fix the damaged parts it won’t be long until the other parts that you haven’t replaced start wearing and it will end up costing you more. A third option to consider is a complete rebuild.
