GoWesty 3-speed automatic transaxles are built to our exacting specifications. Each unit comes with a rebuilt torque converter, GoWesty external oil cooler kit (requires installation), and a full synthetic fluids package. You'll also receive our industry-leading 48-month/48,000-mile warranty, and the peace of mind that comes with our tough-as-nails shipping crate. 

Application: Fits both water-cooled and air-cooled Vanagons (see additional note in the "Core Charge" tab above).

This product includes:
• Fully rebuilt 3-speed automatic (010) & differential (090) sections
• All new bearings, gaskets and seals
• Fully rebuilt valve body
Rebuilt torque converter ($259.95 value!)
 GoWesty External Oil Cooler Kit - please see product page for important fitment-related notes - ($356.95 value!)
• These units come with Swepco 201 gear oil in the differential section. We also include high-quality Redline Synthetic AT Fluid on the side.

Want to add a Peloquin ATB or "locking" ATB differential to your automatic transaxle? Now you can do just that. Choose your option in the drop down menu, and we will ship your transaxle with a Peloquin™ Automatic Torque Biasing Differential pre-installed for the cost of the part, and no additonal labor charges.

Product note: The oil pump inside all Vanagon automatic transaxles is not completely silent—and it is not the same in all transaxles, either. it is not uncommon for this mostly inaudible noise inside your transaxle to be amplified by the external cooler kit. The actual vibration inside the transaxle is not being increased, and it does not indicate any damage to your transaxle. In most cases, the noise will only be present when cold and at very low speeds, and it is virtually inaudible at driving speeds.

WARRANTY: Standard warranty coverage is 48 months/ 48,000 miles (whichever comes first) at no extra charge. It is likely that your old oil cooler contains debris from the failed transaxle that can damage your new transaxle: please note that your warranty is void if you re-use your old cooler. Installing the included GoWesty external cooler is a requirement of your GoWesty warranty. Click here for details.

We put a lot of time and energy into packaging your GoWesty rebuilt transaxle. If you purchase a transmission from us—and then decide to cancel the order within 30 days—we will refund you in full, minus any transportation fees and a 5% restocking fee. If you decide to cancel your order after 30 days, our normal refund policy applies (view by clicking here).

SHIPPING: Shipping cost is "round-trip," meaning the cost to ship the transaxle to you and to get your core back for tear-down. You WILL need to contact GoWesty when you are ready to return your tranny core. NOTE: Transmissions are delivered via truck freight and CANNOT BE DELIVERED TO RESIDENTIAL ADDRESSES. If the delivery destination does not have a forklift, a lift-gate will be necessary (up to $160 extra).

$1000 Core Charge: A core charge is a deposit until your old part is returned and inspected. All or some of this deposit may be forfeited depending upon the condition of the core. You can view our core tear-down check-list here.
• Air-cooled note: This transaxle will work in your air-cooled Vanagon, but please be aware that you will forfeit your $1000 core charge, because we cannot rebuild your air-cooled transaxle.

$250 Crate Core Charge: These automatic transaxles are shipped in special crates, and we charge a deposit of $250 until the crate is returned to us (in good condition).
