I took my car in for a new axle, when it came back the transmission was bad. Could they have caused a problem when they put on the axle?

    It is a possibility, if you had no problem before the axle was replaced what has the shop said they think happened? Was the axle installed correctly is the shaft that was used identical as the one removed? What has failed in the transmission?

    It depends on what you mean by bad. If it would not move, then the axle may be defective. If you took it to the shop thinking it was an axle problem and they said it was the transmission, then I would check on the reputation of the shop. If they have a good reputation, they are most likely telling you the truth. You can e-mail me at jerry@summittransmissions.com if you want to discuss this further, but I need more information to help you.
