2000 Chevy Silverado Transmission Rebuild
Rebuilding a transmission is a major technical overhaul of a vehicle’s transmission system. A transmission system is comprised of a series of interlinked mechanical components that wear down over a period. Transmission rebuilding involves replacing worn out parts only and not replacing the entire transmission system. Important steps of transmission rebuilding are removal and inspection of a car’s transmission followed by replacement or refurbishment of any damaged or worn out car part.
A transmission rebuild is a very convenient and popular option for those who want to minimize the money spent on replacing a vehicle’s worn-out or damaged transmission with new ones. It is also preferred by people who are following a stricter budget or have other things at priority.
Preventative transmission maintenance, such as transmission fluid flushes and filter change, can help prevent the need for a transmission rebuild. But as parts become worn and damaged, sometimes there is no other option. Transmission fluid flushes and filter changes are an important key to keeping your transmission working properly.

What causes 2000 Chevy Silverado Transmission Problems:
Most of transmission problems in any vehicle start from overheating. Under heavy load, such as towing a heavy trailer, rocking the vehicle from the snow, having continuous stop and go traffic in hot weather, racing, etc. the transmission overheats. At higher temperatures the transmission fluid burns, losing its lubricating qualities and becomes oxidized leaving deposits all over inside the transmission. Exposed to the heat the rubber seals and gaskets inside the transmission become hardened causing leaks. The metal parts warp and lose their strength. All this, sooner or later, results in transmission failure.
However, overheating is not the only reason – sometimes transmission breaks down because of poor design or due to lack of maintenance.
Few other reasons: harsh driving, too low or too high transmission fluid level or wrong transmission fluid type.
If you experience any of the problems above with your 2000 Chevy Silverado transmission, or others such as leaks, noises, problems with shifting, etc. Don’t wait until the problem will become worse, or your truck will finally stop somewhere on a highway.
