Expert Transmission Repair Services for Your Vehicle

Your vehicle’s engine serves as the powerhouse, generating the essential energy for movement. Subsequently, the transmission facilitates the transfer of this energy from the engine to the wheels. When your transmission is not functioning optimally, telltale signs may include reduced acceleration, stuttering, and gear slipping. If your vehicle’s performance has diminished, or you encounter issues like stuttering and slipping gears, it’s time to entrust it to Kaiser Auto.

Fortunately, we are privileged to boast two conveniently situated establishments in both Valparaiso, Indiana, and La Porte, Indiana.


In Northwest Indiana, we provide professional and proven transmission services. Most automatic transmissions generally endure around 100,000 miles before necessitating a complete replacement. However, before opting for a full transmission replacement, there are routine maintenance steps that can uphold its proper function. This includes tasks such as adding transmission fluid and engaging in transmission rebuilds. A transmission rebuild encompasses the meticulous inspection, removal, and replacement of various components within your vehicle’s transmission system. Our team of adept automotive technicians adeptly replaces the following transmission elements:

  • Input shafts
  • Solenoids
  • Gaskets
  • Bands
  • Seals
  • Clutches
  • Transmission filters
  • Bearings

Frequently Asked Questions About Transmission Rebuild

How long do transmission rebuilds typically take?

The duration varies. For instance, swiftly replacing solenoids can be accomplished within a day, while a comprehensive transmission rebuild might extend over a few days. When you schedule an appointment with Kaiser Auto, our technicians will provide you with an estimated timeframe for your vehicle’s stay in the shop.

When is a complete transmission rebuild necessary?

Usually, a complete transmission rebuild becomes pertinent around the 100,000-mile mark. However, this timeframe fluctuates based on factors like the vehicle’s make, model, and year. Moreover, certain transmission components might require replacement earlier. As a rule of thumb, having your transmission assessed every 30,000 miles—typically coinciding with tire rotations—is recommended. For more precise guidance, consult your owner’s manual.

What are the costs associated with transmission rebuilds?

Transmission rebuild costs vary due to the scope of the work. Some rebuilds demand only a few replacement parts, while others involve more intricate procedures. Our affable and highly skilled staff members are poised to provide a tailored estimate specific to your vehicle.
