Transtar’s New Catalog

Automatically Makes Your Job Easier

When a 4L60E shows up in your shop, you could probably order the parts you need in your sleep.  Your builder may almost be able to rebuild the unit blindfolded!  But, what about a Ford 6R140?  Or a GM 2ML70?  Or, even a Saturn CVT?  Not quite so easy, right?  That’s where we step in to help. 

Transtar’s hot-off-the-presses 2011 Automatic Transmission Parts Catalog not only helps you identify these (and many other) units, it also lists the most commonly used parts, with descriptions you can understand.  Featuring over 150 automatic transmissions, this 728-page catalog covers fifteen new transmissions and has more new information than any catalog in the industry.  This edition is organized alphanumerically, and includes new terminology pages, technical manuals, OEM reference numbers, and a new transmission code section which includes alternative names for transmissions. 

With all of this information, you may wonder why our new catalog is not thousands of pages.  The answer to that is easy, too!  We are in the business of finding solutions that make your lives easier and more efficient.  That’s why when you look in a Transtar catalog, you’ll find exactly the parts you need.  We are constantly re-evaluating our product line along with the information found in our catalogs based on your input, so you don’t have to look through hundreds of parts you don’t need to find the one that you do.

To view or download the most comprehensive, accurate, up-to-date, and user-friendly catalog in the industry, click here.  This great tool will almost automatically give you the knowledge you need!


A ReSource…For YOUR Business

Making your job easier is, well, part of our job.  And, giving you the resources you need is part of that.  One of those resources is our exclusive online ordering tool, Transtar eSource™.  With this tool, you have access to our entire product line 24/7, and can shop anywhere – literally!  

The ability to shop and quickly order Transtar products is only part of this tool’s potential, too.  Let’s say you are wondering if we have the part you are looking for and how much it costs.  Well, you can easily find out.  In eSource, you can view your price and current inventory at your local branch and in your region.  What if you need a part, and looking at it, you are not exactly sure what it is?  eSource has a detailed listing of all Transtar product lines and thousands of photos, including hard to identify electronics and filters.  These photos will assist you with finding the exact part you need.  

If you need a little assistance in account management, eSource can help with that too!  Not only does this tool permit you to review your account balance and pay invoices, it keeps a record of your order history for you.  You can login in anytime and search by job or date to find the exact order you are looking for.                     

To login in to eSource, visit our website and click on the Transtar eSource button.  This will take you to the login page.  If you do not have a log in, click Request a User ID and fill out the form.  If you have forgotten your User ID or Password, click the appropriate link, and your information will be emailed to you.
