ATS Tranny

I found a used ATS tranny with a torque converter for $3000 seller says its got roughly 40000km on it. Is it worth looking at how can I tell if its been abused or not

Without taking it apart, you really can't, unless the converter is bare metal and you can see bluing marks on it from it being overheated, aside from taking the seller's word for it.

If it's still in a vehicle and can be driven, you can see how it works.

Oil condition comes into play a little, but if the guy was going to sell you junk consciously, I'd think he'd hang a service on it real quick and put fresh oil in it, or leave it empty.

I don't like buying used engines/transmissions and letting them sit around for a long time, unless I take them apart.

That way, if there IS something wrong with it, at that point, it's all he-said she-said. At least if you put something in right away and it's junk, you might be able to work something out with the seller.

At the very least, I'd call ATS or a trans shop and find out what they'd charge you to go through/freshen the unit, just for piece of mind.

I have no experience with ATS products, I build my own stuff.
