    Ah Canberra, yeah not much happens there. Heavy Automatics dont even have a branch lol
    Any good shop would of run it on a transmission dyno, blown it up in house and fixed it properly

        Most guys head to Sydney or Wagga to get stuff done.

          Its Funny, im in the industry we had a guy drive his car from 100kms north of Adelaide to get his car fixed, as no one local wanted to touch it, or wanted way too much money. Iím from Melbourne btw so thatís a massive trip for a fix!

            It's honestly strange to me these days - in business or personal - people don't want to take your money - or are asking 'don't want your business money' - literally the trans shop that looked at it first pushed it out the front...

              I can't comment on your situation specifically, but I completely understand it and do it often. Some jobs are too high risk, or I haven't done one and am too busy already to waste time learning something I'll probably never do again.

                Even for some trans shops certain cars are just too hard from them. I work at a place that when it gets too hard for mechanics/trans rebuilders they give it to us. We always have mechanics/trans rebuilders rocking up to our place for assistance!

                  Yeah, and those guys are smart enough to realise that either they can't afford to learn how to build one or they can probably get it done but it won't be built to an acceptable, warrantable standard nor will it be done in what they would consider a reasonable time frame.

                  I wouldn't expect a local transmission shop to do one, they are going to have to source manuals and spend hours on the phone trying to buy parts etc - why lose money doing that, just tell the bloke to call daltrans, heavy autos, Craig's etc

                    Guess it will depend on how many Holden sell now - as to If it was the right decision or not.

                      All bullshit. The reality is most trans shops are run by people that were taught by other people that just winged it. Never seal a pan properly because you know it will be back because you guessed a lot of it, that shifts ok, my scan tool says it's ok, what?
                      There are people that take it seriously and use the massive amount of info available to better themselves. There are also dudes that have no idea what they are doing that take peoples money and then use radio silence to get out of not fixing their glaring fuckups.

                        Last time I saw a dealer pull a transmission down to rebuild it was me on a VW Syncro nearly 20 years ago, autos were always swapped and sent back to the manufacturer.
                        And to be honest, it's getting harder and harder to find a good local transmission shop these days. Alot of them simply fit rebuilt units from a wholesale shop.

                          Looks like it's "fixed"?

                              How did you end up fixing it and did original trans shop come to the party with a refund of the work ?

                                Paid TC4 to rebuild it again - which still didn't fix the original problem - ended up back at B1's shop - where it came apart again (after chasing elleventy other things) and replaced the piston seal again & I paid him for the pleasure - it sounds like some of the original clutches fitted were undersize causing the piston to over extend & tear.
