Automatic Transmission - Used Automatic Transmission Sales
Finding Used Automatic Transmissions
Unfortunately, even the most expensive, most reputable cars and trucks aren't built to last. Although some make it further than others, all automobiles will experience some kind of setback over the course of its life. If you're lucky, the transmission will never need to be replaced, but if it does, Automotix LKQ can get you fixed up with a used automatic transmission in a hurry.
Looking at the Automatic Transmission
Every auto owner knows that there's a difference between manual and automatic. But not every owner knows exactly what a transmission does or how it works. A transmission's purpose is to allow the engine to operate at a narrow range of speeds while providing a wide range of output speeds. Without this, cars would have one top speed due to limited gear ratio.
This varying ratio allows you to accelerate properly, and it also keeps the engine from red-lining (overworking). The transmission uses the torque provided by the engine to change gears and thus operate at with the appropriate amount of torque at the appropriate speeds. The automatic transmission has one set of gears with various ratios and changes automatically according to torque.
The inside of a transmission is very complicated, with sun gears, a ring gear and a planet carrier. These moving metal parts need proper lubrication, and if its not properly cared for, disaster can strike. Transmission breakdowns are a common occurrence.
Finding Transmissions with Automotix
Most automatic transmissions go bad due to neglect or misuse. And some tend to wear out over time. Automotix is able to save the customer money without sacrificing quality when a replacement transmission is needed. We do business on a completely different level from our competitors. Instead of overcharging to compensate for an economy in recession, we lower our prices so that every person can make their auto repairs. Every automatic transmission to come from our store has a warranty attached and also a low price guarantee. And although our parts are OEM used, that doesn't stop Automotix LKQ from being the best option in the industry.
How do we obtain our used parts? Every automatic transmission we deal with is pulled straight from an automobile that comes through one of our 200-plus salvage yards. For many people, the idea of a salvage yard is undesirable, but don't get salvage confused with junk. A car or truck can be brought in with a bad engine and a pristine transmission. We'll pull the transmission, let our mechanics inspect it and tune and clean it up, and if it meets our high standards, we then label it for sale. Bottom line: our OEM used automatic transmissions function like they're brand new.
Since our auto parts are used and in such abundance, we're able to slash prices to the bare minimum. You'll never overpay for a part with us. Automotix is the best in the business when it comes to finding exactly what you need for the price you're able to pay. Quality automatic transmissions can be found on any budget, and since they're all certified OEM, they're guaranteed to fit.
OEM has to do with the manufacturer. They're not generic, third-party parts. Original Equipment Manufacturer parts are the same parts that are in your vehicle now. So when you need a replacement automatic transmission, you'll know for sure that it will fit because it's the same part you currently have - only this one works like it's brand new.
