Have Transmission Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and welcome to just answer. I value your input to my questions so I may help you better. The shop you took it to for that estimate, was it a general shop or a transmission specialty shop?Some general shops will tell you that to avoid doing jobs they don't feel comfortable doing. But on the other hand I know first hand dealers have a cut off time the manufacturer stops supplying parts for models depending on their age because they have limited space to hold all years and model parts.I would approach aftermarket people and check with them and a transmission specialist shop as well.Did they tell you exactly what parts were required? If last resort no parts available you can go to Japan auto parts, they usually have a selection of low mileage parts at a reasonable price and is in most cases cheaper to r&r then rebuild http://aadiscountauto.ca/?gclid=CPD8r9bRvNACFQZLDQodMSQAsA
Ha , did you read my previous notes then? Some shops shy away from certain jobs they just don't feel comfortable doing them or they just don't want to tie up there space so they can do easier fast money jobs. Obviously if you found parts your self that is the case . I speak from experience of over 45 yrs in the trade , where I have seen this many times. Go to a specialty transmission shop where that is their business and you should see a different response.
