As a part of the global Freudenberg family, we like to take any steps we can to give back to our community and the planet, too. That mission not only applies inside our facility, but reaches far and wide outside it as well. However, one of our favorite projects can be found right outside our kitting and distribution operation, in our own backyard.
At Sunrise Transmissions, automotive service is all in the family. In today's inaugural edition of our transmission shop spotlight, we're featuring the Profeta family owned and operated Sunrise Transmissions shop in Islip, Long Island, New York. The shop has a long history of providing full-service transmission repairs with great results to satisfied customers and has trusted TransTec seal kits to help rebuild it right for over 20 years.

Years ago, you (and many other technicians) might have been able to look at just about any car on the road and know with a high level of certainty what transmission was inside. And we're not just talking about whether it's an automatic or not; we mean the actual transmission application. Over time, however, as the transmission industry has grown and developed, identifying the transmission inside a vehicle has become a much bigger challenge.
While the automotive aftermarket is constantly introducing new parts to service late model vehicles, but not all brands and manufacturers can or will keep up the same pace. The overhaul kit market is a great example. Did you know that some seal providers have their overhaul kits ready before a transmission application even comes out of warranty? While some brands lag behind, others put in the effort and resources necessary to have quality seal kits ready before you're likely to even need them.
The average transmission overhaul kit contains all of the sealing components you need to to rebuild a specific application: from o-rings to gaskets and steels to clutches. When you open up your kit, the sheer number of small parts inside can feel a bit overwhelming. Despite the organized packages and instructions inside to help you, it can be tough to know if you're missing a part until the unit is torn apart on your bench, effectively bringing your rebuild job to a stand still.
