Default Is this the original Trans???



I was washing under the hood and i came across this sticker, REMAN TRANS?!?!

I, in a way, hope that they don't put reman transes in new cars... so it must have been replaced at some point then... right?

You are correct. It is illegal for them to sell a new car that contains any used/rebuilt parts without explicitly stating so. I don't think any manufacturer would actually go that route either.

no kidding, that makes me wonder a little about that car... Nothing like that showed up on the carfax, so it wasn't done under warrenty or likley by a dealer... Hmm...

I thought only repair work for an accident showed up on car fax...ie - data from insurance companies. Anyhow, it might be worthwhile to see if there is a rebuild date on that sticker or tranny and give you an idea of when it was replaced.

Ofcourse thats not the original trans... But it is a SRTA trans remanufactured by Hydramatic... That is a quality GM rebuild... Be happy the previous owner paid for too..lol

Well when i got my carfax iti had a record of every oil changed performend by a dealer from the day he bought it in 1996... so i guess theres more then just accident repairs.

Good to hear is a good trans though, comferting. functions great, shifts smooth. I've posted earlier about a problem going into OD with it (the last shift at 55ish) but i think that its electrical and related to a Cruise Controll problem.

Wierd, all Carfax shows for my car is title changes. Despite my accident. When I bought the car, the dealer provided me very complete records of oil changes and stuff, so I know they did all the work on it.

Have someone with access to GM'* service system run a VIS (Vehicle Identification System, or something like that). It shows the GM service history of the car. It'* very likely that the SRTA was put in by a dealer. Otherwise, it was purchased from a dealer and installed independently. I'll PM you an email address for a guy I know that will run it for you. Any GM dealership service department can do it, but they may or may not. I used to run them all the time working as a service advisor. You also get your car'* "birthday", the SPID sheet showing all the option codes and their meanings, the delivering dealer, etc.

EDIT: I just bothered to look that yours is a 1995. :( It may or may not still be in the system, as GM purges it after 10 model years. Some stay in a little longer. Anything 1996 or newer is probably still in there, though.
