I sent to http://www.ellipseau....sg/gearbox.htm at Sin Min for 2.4k. The other commonly mentioned name is KATC "Khang's auto Transmission". Some MCFers here sent their car to JB which I am told about nearly half price.

just get rid of it and change to newer models, newer cars have better technology


On the contrary, newer cars with more high tech technologies are more prone to breakdowns

Change gearbox there last only 1 yr. whats the point if keep changing gearbox there

Hi, i spent $2.4k to repair my OLDyssey gearbox and drove for a year before i scrapped it. Let me explain why it was worth the money.
I drove my Oldyssey for 9 years and had been keeping it well maintained. In fact for 7 years my ody had been maintained only by KM. Only during the last 3 years i sent to KM/TPM for every alternate service schedule.
For every service, i would tell mechanics to perform PM check, any smallest signs of oil leak or belt fray, i would have it fixed or replaced. Fortunately the ody was a trusty workhorse that hardly ever give me problems.
Net is i knew the condition of my car well that i knew it would last for 1 more year without major repair after a gearbox service.
Imagine if i had to sell my car then, i would have been offered closed to scrap price for a 9 year old car. That would mean i have to write off the 10th year depreciation. And assuming i buy another 9 year old ody as a replacemrnt, i would have to cough out 13k depr minimally, yet without knowing if the car would last for a year without repair. In fact more likely some repair would be required.
So even till now after 2.5 years, i am still convinced that it was worth spending 2.4k to repair gearbox to drive for 1 year. Some who has the theory of switching to new car when a 9 year old car breaks down may not agree with me, or those who think yolo would rather scrap it and buy a new car. Not wrong but i just work it out based on pure mathematic formula, no feeling about driving old car or not worried about visiting workshop in case of a car breakdown.

What did get after scrapping the ody?

I too had the GB problem with the ody, she serve me well till the last day of her service with only with leaking steering rack and a GB that felt lime a turbo kicked in at gear 3.
If anyone can have it, I don't want it.
