Used Transmission Guide
This used transmission guide is a resource for our customers installing a used transmission on their vehicle. The transmission is one of the most expensive parts on the vehicle, so it’s important to get the right transmission size & have it installed correctly.
As many car & truck owners know, there can be many different transmission types for the same make & model of vehicle. Use this page as a guide to finding your transmission type & locating it on the My Auto Store website. We have some great search & sorting tools to help you narrow down search results by VIN number.
Once you’ve located your transmission, the next thing will be to make sure it is installed to meet My Auto Store warranty specifications. Not only will this ensure that you’re covered by our 6-month warranty on all used transmissions sold, but it will also help you get the most life out of your replacement transmission as well.
