Jasper is $3160 delivered with all new Solenoids and torque converter

Transmission Planet is $2200 with only the linear solenoid
precision torque converters

Your thoughts.

I guess it depends on what you're replacing...a newer more expensive vehicle I would likely go Jasper. If it's something older...high miles...I would shop around for a GOOD (not AAMCO or the likes) independant transmission specialist and let them rebuild it. Ask around and you'll probably figure out who is good pretty quickly.

Has anyone even heard of transmission planet?

There is one good recommendation of some NY tranny shop and another good recommendation of Chicagoland tranny shop. Perhaps you can drive to either. The Chicagoland one was less than $1500 IIRC and the discussion was recent in the last 5 - 6 months.

The Jasper also comes with a transmission cooler which is one of the primary problems with our transmissions. A few members have them and seem happy with them.

Personally though, I'd probably just get it rebuilt locally pay a little extra to have them replace all the solenoids and upgrade the tq converter if possible. While you are there install a 20,000 transmission cooler along with a B&M remote transmission filter and you should be fine.

Drive it 1000 miles and start the change out process to a synthetic fluid like Amsoil Universal ATF 3 quarts at a time by changing the fluid every 15k along with the remote filter. Once 3 changes have been done do it every 30k.

why start with honda atf and then Amsoil?

Why not just start with amsoil?

Also, why do it gradually?

Look into LEvel 10 in northern jersey- seems they have been able to address the weakness in the tranny- they are not cheap though

You could, I just see using the regular stuff as a better solution for breaking things in than the synthetics. THinking about transmissions, it probably won't make much difference. You'd still want to swap the fluid at 1k anyways to clear out the stuff from the break in period. This is one of the more common problems with the BMW lifetime transmission fluids. Metal shavings come loose during break in period and never get flushed out. Those who change the fluids don't have problems with the transmissions. But those who don't change out the fluid frequently do.


Also, someone mentioned level ten. They'll do it, and it will be near bulletproof when they finish but they aren't too cheap. I'd give them a call and see what the cost looks like at least. See if they can't match Jasper for a good rebuild.
