CONTINENTAL TRANSMISSION BUFFALO - TRANSMISSION REBUILD SERVICES SINCE 1977

At Continental Transmission, a transmission rebuild is a process of restoring a vehicle's transmission to like-new condition without completely replacing it, which can save both time and money. The most important thing you can do for your vehicle is to keep up with regularly scheduled maintenance and repairs – this can help prevent a big event like a transmission rebuild or replacement.

TRANSMISSION ISSUES

Some issues, like electrical ones or easily accessible part repairs, can be fixed without even having to remove the transmission. Unfortunately, sometimes the inevitable happens, and you're faced with a more significant transmission issue that requires a complete transmission rebuild.
