The first time you noticed a puddle of transmission fluid on your driveway, you shrugged it off, but now that it has happened several more times, you cannot avoid the reality of your failing transmission. Replacing a faulty part with a Getrag 6-speed transmission offers your vehicle a new chance at life. There is a vast inventory of transmissions available from sellers on eBay. Some come with clutches, shifters, gearboxes, and other hardware, while others include only the transmission itself. Getrag 6-speed transmissions are compatible with the Ford Focus, the Mustang GT, and a host of other cars, and they offer a superior lifespan compared to many other brands. The Getrag 290 is another option, especially if you drive one of the larger trucks on the road. When purchasing a transmission for your vehicle, consider whether you intend to install it yourself or hire a mechanic. You might need additional tools for an at-home installation, including a generously-sized oil pan. You can save money by buying the transmission yourself, however, and you can soon have a fully-functioning transmission once more.
