Advance Auto Parts Limited Warranty

General Limited Warranty Period and Applicability
The warranty period is 90 days from your date of purchase or any longer warranty period that may be printed on your original sales receipt. During the warranty period, we will replace or refund, at our option, any new part that fails due to a defect in materials or workmanship under normal use and service after proper installation. Simply return the part along with your original sales receipt to any Advance Auto Parts store. You must be the original purchaser of the part and still own the vehicle on which it was installed. This warranty is not transferable. Replacement parts are warranted for 90 days from the date of exchange or the remainder of the warranty period on the original part, whichever is longer.

Refunds will only be considered if you bring the defective part to an Advance Auto Parts store along with your original sales receipt within 90 days from the original date of purchase. Refunds will be issued in accordance with our Refund Policy.

Battery Limited Warranty
The battery Free Replacement Period begins the day of purchase and expires at the end of the Free Replacement Period that is printed on your original sales receipt. This period does not renew when the battery is replaced during the Free Replacement Period. If the battery is found defective after the Free Replacement Period but prior to the end of the warranty period, a prorated credit will be issued that can be applied toward the purchase of a new battery. The prorated credit will be determined by dividing the original purchase price by the number of months of the warranty period, then multiplying the result by the months remaining in the warranty period. Partial months are rounded to the nearest whole month. Installation or use of an automotive battery in any other type of vehicle or equipment voids your warranty.

What is Not Covered

- Failure due to: accident or collision; misuse, abuse or modification; chemical fallout; salt, hail, or other environmental conditions including natural disasters; marine use; improper installation; installation of an incorrect part; and damages caused by other faulty parts.

- Parts under manufacturer's recall for a related problem.

- Parts installed on vehicles used off-road or for racing purposes.

- Parts installed on a commercial-use vehicle after 90 days (see below).

- Normal wear and tear.

- Used or salvage parts.

Commercial Use Vehicles
Parts installed on commercial-use vehicles are warranted for 90 days from the date of purchase only, regardless of any longer warranty period that may be printed on your sales receipt.

Part-Specific Requirements
Certain parts must meet specific installation requirements. Failure to provide proof that these requirements have been met will void your warranty.

- A/C Compressors. Flushing is required. Must also install a new receiver dryer/accumulator, orifice tube or expansion valve (as applicable).

- Clutch/Clutch Kits. The clutch/clutch kit must be installed according to the manufacturer's instructions, including installation of a new pilot bearing and resurfacing of the flywheel. Clutches contaminated by oil and grease are not eligible for warranty replacement/refund.

- Crankshafts. The installer must validate that the crankshaft OE number matches and there is no visible damage to the unit prior to installation. Warranty is limited to replacement of the crankshaft and bearings prior to installation. Warranted crankshafts that are returned must include the bearings supplied with the unit.

- Fuel Pumps. Replacement of pump strainer (for in-tank electric pumps) and inline fuel filter at time of repair is required. Must also drain and clean fuel tanks.

Your local Advance Auto Parts store can assist with all warranty matters for online purchases. If you do not have a store location near you, please contact 1-877-ADVANCE (238-2623) for warranty assistance.

 Core Charges

What is a Core Charge?

A “Core Charge” is similar to a bottle deposit. In many states, to promote recycling, you are charged a deposit when you purchase a bottle of soda and you receive your deposit back when you return the empty bottle. Many automotive parts have a core charge, or core price, that works the same way as a bottle deposit.

 

Here’s how the Core Charge works:
  • The part you are purchasing contains a component that is rebuildable
  • The core charge deposit is charged at the time of purchase
  • When the rebuildable component from your old part is returned to us, the core charge is refunded to you

 

To receive your Core Charge refund, you can do either of the following:
  • Bring the part to any Advance Auto Parts store along with your receipt or packing slip
  • Mail the part back to Advance Auto Parts following the directions on your packing slip

 

Please see our Returns policy for more information on returning items, including cores.
Core Charges are often mandated by state legislature, and, as such, the actual core charge and taxes on the charge may vary depending on the state in which you buy your part. The Advance Auto Parts core charge presented to you online today with your item is representative of the most common core charge. If you have any questions, please contact Customer Care or visit any Advance Auto Parts store.

 


Coupon Not Received

Why didn't I receive my future-use coupon that I was expecting?

Advance Auto Parts often offers coupons to customers for use on future orders if they place a qualifying order during the promotional period. If you expected to receive a future-use coupon for a previous purchase you made but didn't receive it, there could be a few reasons why.

Registered AdvanceAutoParts.com Account
In order for our system to verify that both the initial purchase and the follow-up purchase were for the same customer, we require both to be placed from within the same AdvanceAutoParts.com account. Click here to create your account.

Sale / Excluded Items
Items on sale and some other items like engine oil and tools, are already a great deal and aren't eligible for additional discounts. These items also will not count against the order total for offers were there is a subtotal threshold that must be met.
Sale and Excluded items are identified with a red disclaimer on the product detail page.

Product Subtotal Threshold Not Met
Some promotions require a minimum subtotal in order to qualify for the future-use coupon. Core charges, taxes, shipping and handling, sale / excluded items, and discounts do not count towards the minimum subtotal.
You may still receive a discount on the initial order without qualifying for the future-use coupon.

Still Can't Locate The Coupon Email?
Below are some other possibilities for not receiving a coupon you were expecting:

  • Registered Email Typo - Check that your email address was entered correctly
  • Spam Filters - Your coupon email may be hiding in your spam filter
  • One Use Per Household - If your household place more than one order, only one future-use coupon will be eligible.

 


Credit Card Refund Not Posted

What should I do if I don't see a credit to my account after being refunded?

Credit Card refunds will generally post to your account in 5-7 business days. If you don't see the funds after 7 business days, contact your bank to see if the refund is in a pending status. If this is the case, your bank should be able to tell you when they will post it to your account.

If the credit still cannot be located, Contact Us and we will attempt to verify the credit was successfully transmitted.

 


Cash, Checks, Money Orders

Do you accept, Cash, Checks, or Money Orders?
We do not accept cash, checks, or money orders for online purchases at this time. Cash, checks, and money orders are accepted at any of our 4000 Advance Auto Parts Stores.

 


Debit Card Refunds

If I pay with a debit card can I get cash back instead for items I return?

Purchases made online at AdvanceAutoParts.com will be refunded to the original method of payment used to make the purchase.

Purchases made at an Advance Auto Parts store location with a credit card will also be refunded back to the original credit card used to make the purchase. If you paid in store with a debit card and used your pin and prefer to be refunded in cash, we will be happy to do so. Just let us know at the time of the return.

On our vehicle listing you will find a listing for Ram under the Make drop down and then all of the series, 1500, 2500 etc. under the model section.

Online orders for pick up in store
If the part that you purchase is cheaper online than the price at the store where you are picking up the order, you will be charged the cheaper price.

Melling Engine Parts Limited Warranty

Melling Engine Parts Limited Warranty

All products sold by Melling Engine Parts are warranted to the consumer owner for one (1) year from the date of installation to be free from defects in materials or workmanship.

  • This warranty does not apply to any product that has been altered, misused, subject to excessive operating conditions, malfunctions because of foreign particles such as engine dirt or pieces of other deteriorating engine components, or products used in a vehicle that has been altered for other than intended purposes. Also, performance products are not covered under this warranty including products used for off-road or racing purposes.
  • The product warranty does not consider loss of oil pressure as grounds for extensive engine repairs or complete replacement of damaged engines. This is based on all vehicles having as standard equipment, either warning lights or gauges, the purpose of which is to warn the operator of low oil level, low oil pressure, or loss of oil pressure prior to the occurrence of engine damage. If the operator chooses to ignore these gauges or warning lights, or the system of gauges or warning lights are not in operating condition, this constitutes negligence on the operator's part. Melling cannot be held responsible for operator negligence that results in this type of engine damage.
  • If a product fails to conform to this warranty, the product should be returned to the place of purchase, then sent back, prepaid to Melling Engine Parts. If Melling Engine Parts determines that this product fails to conform to this warranty, it will either replace the product or refund its original purchase price, at the option of Melling Engine Parts.
  • This limited warranty is exclusive and is in lieu of any other implied warranty of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose or warranty of quality, whether express or implied, except the warranty of title. All implied warranties are limited to the duration of the warranty, the remedies set forth in this warranty are exclusive.

Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts or exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights, which vary, from state to state.

NOTE: CAMSHAFT WARRANTY DISCLAIMER

It is illegal to use some Melling performance camshafts in vehicles that are operated on the public streets and highways of California. Various other federal and state laws may limit the use of these camshafts to "off-highway" applications only. Check current federal and state laws to be sure.

Multiple Authorizations/Holds on my Funds

Why are there multiple authorizations on my credit or debit card payment method?

When placing an online order your bank places an authorization hold for the total amount of the purchase. This is to ensure that those funds are available when you pick up your order or your order is shipped.

If you have multiple shipments that have not been confirmed as shipped or haven't yet been picked up at your local Advance Auto Parts store, you will see multiple open authorizations on your online banking statement.

Once your item(s) are picked up at the store or shipped to you, those authorizations seen on your online statement will be removed by your bank and your account will be charged for your order.

 

Multiple Shipments On Same Order

Why have I not received my full order?

In some cases when you purchase multiple items at AdvanceAutoParts.com we may ship the items in more than one package. This often happens if one or more product has an estimated arrival date that is later than your other items. It can also happen when the items are coming from more than one distribution center.

All items shipping to you will have an estimated arrival time displayed in your shopping cart before you checkout (see below). Since some of our items are shipped directly from the manufacturer, these times may vary.

Pre-Owned Vehicle Maintenance

What are some general items that I might need to service when buying a used car?

Buying a "new to you" used vehicle can save you lots of money over purchasing a new car off the showroom floor. But if the previous owner didn't stay in front of recommended maintenance or make repairs when the car needed attention, your savings could quickly vanish.

Below are some general items that are often in need of repair or maintenance:

  • Brake Fluid - Most manufacturers recommend a fluid flush every 2-4 years Check the owner's manual for specifics on your model.
  • Coolant System Flush - Check your owner's manual for recommended service interval.
  • Engine Air Filter
  • Cabin Filter
  • Check Tire Pressure and Wear - unusual wear may indicate an alignment issue or worn suspension components. Don't forget to check the spare tire pressure too!
  • Brake Linings - with most modern wheels and disc brakes you can usually take a peak at the brake pads through the spokes of the wheels.
  • Worn Drive Belts
  • Timing belt - often the water pump will be replaced as part of this service.
  • Spark Plugs
  • Ball Joints / Control Arms - Worn suspension components can make a used vehicle handle poorly and create vibrations and unwanted noises. They also can make a vehicle unsafe if severely worn.
  • Transmission Fluid and Filter - many late model cars have lifetime fluid but depending on the model, filter and fluid might be recommended periodically. Check your owner's manual for details.
  • Oxygen Sensor - some manufacturers list a recommended replacement interval for oxygen sensors to maintain performance and fuel mileage. Check your owner's manual for details.

Checking the components above will provide you with a good start to making sure that your new-to-you car is kept in great running condition. Since all vehicles can vary, check with the vehicle manufacturer or your owner's manual for specific maintenance items and intervals.

 

Price Matching

Does Advance Auto Parts price-match it's competitors or Advance Auto Parts store prices?

Advance Auto Parts will match the price of any identical or comparable product available the same day at any competitor's store or website. If we match an online competitor's price, it must include the shipping charges in the price of the product. We will match pricing at any other local Advance Auto Parts store or AdvanceAutoParts.com.

The following conditions must be met:

  • The item must be either an identical item or a comparable item, matching quality (good, better or best), size, weight, color, quantity, part/manufacturer number and warranty.
  • Price must be valid at the time the price match is requested.
    • For printed ads: Customer must show the entire print advertisement. Photos, photocopies, or mobile phone versions of the ad cannot be accepted as verification of a competitor’s printed ad. An Advance Team Member must call the competitor to verify.
    • For online prices: The customer must show their mobile device or a printout from a qualifying competitor’s website that guarantees same day delivery on the product. The competitor’s online price must also include shipping costs. An Advance Team Member will need to verify the match. Advance will only match select competitors’ website prices. We do not match prices of items found on Internet auction sites such as eBay or non-professional, independent websites.
  • Prices on AdvanceAutoParts.com may vary based on the customer's zip code and may differ from our store pricing. If the customer places an online order for pick up at a local store, they will receive the lesser of the two prices automatically. If the customer prefers to purchase the product in the store, Advance Team Members will match the online price; however, if the online offer includes a bounce-back coupon it cannot be offered in store. Bounce-back coupons are only offered online and can only be redeemed online.
    • A bounce-back coupon is a coupon that is valid for a future online purchase. E.g., spend a certain amount online and receive a coupon in the mail to be used for a future online purchase.
  • Coupon codes from third party websites or other third party sources will not be matched in store.
  • If the item is not available in the Advance Auto Parts system, we cannot issue a rain check to match the online price or competitor’s print ad.
  • We reserve the right to verify a competitor’s advertised price and the availability of the item.

Price Match Guarantee excludes:

  • Clearance, catalog, closeout, damaged product, used, refurbished, open packages or liquidation sales.

Remanufactured Cylinder Heads Limited Warranty

Remanufactured Cylinder Heads Limited Warranty


WHAT DOES THIS WARRANTY COVER?

All products remanufactured and or sold by Spartan Cylinder Heads or Moore's Cylinder Heads are warranted to be free from defects in material and workmanship on the part of the remanufacturer for a period of one year or 12,000 miles for automotive applications, and one year or 12,000 miles on light and heavy duty diesel applications.


WHAT IS NOT COVERED?

This warranty does not cover any cylinder heads that are damaged due to improper installation, overheating, abuse, accident, or any act of God. No claim will be paid in regards to the installation of the incorrect part. The installer is responsible to check the part against the original and make sure it is correct before it is installed. Any claim for reimbursement for the installation of an incorrect part will be denied.


WHO GETS THE BENEFIT OF THIS WARRANTY?

Only the person that originally purchased the part, "owns" the warranty. It cannot be transferred to anyone at any time. You will be required to provide your purchase receipt. If the receipt is not in your name, the warranty will be void. Cylinder heads purchased by a "garage" are warranted to the garage only. They in turn must warranty the part to their customer.


WHAT MUST I DO?

Should you experience a problem with a cylinder head during the warranty period, DO NOT remove or repair the head. Instead, please contact the store where you made your purchase. They can assist you in getting a claim started and contacting the proper supplier. Contact Us if the purchase was made online. If necessary, you may be asked to contact Spartan Cylinder Head or Moore's Cylinder Heads. Either one will assist you in getting the problem resolved without removal of the head if possible. Do not make any repairs or remove the head without approval of the remanufacturer. This can void your warranty and eliminate the possibility for any labor reimbursement. The manufacturer will decide if replacement is required and the replacement head will be shipped to the store to be exchanged. Please return the head complete as it was purchased and also return the old gaskets. These will be shipped at our expense to our facility for examination.

  • SPARTAN CYLINDER HEAD - (866) 360-4101
  • MOORE'S CYLINDER HEADS - (800) 331-7220


WHAT WILL THE MANUFACTURER DO?

The manufacturer will see that every claim that is presented for consideration will be treated as fairly as possible. They will be the sole judge relative to all decisions on defective material or workmanship and warranty settlements. Any labor, if approved, will be paid at a "warranty rate" to be determined by Manufacturer. Time paid is based on the use of a labor guide.


GENERAL

Advance Auto Parts and our suppliers make no other warranty beyond that provided in this "limited warranty". This limited warranty is the complete and exclusive agreement. It supersedes all prior agreements or representations whether oral or written. Advance Auto Parts and our suppliers do not authorize any person to vary in any way, the terms, conditions, or exclusions of this warranty. Should any disclaimer or remedy limit in this warranty be declared or become invalid or unenforceable because of any laws, the remaining terms and conditions hereof shall remain in full force and effect. This warranty gives you specific rights and you may have other rights, which vary from state to state.

 

Remanufactured Engines Limited Warranty

WHAT IS COVERED UNDER THIS WARRANTY?

This limited warranty covers the failure of this remanufactured long block, (engine), due to defects in materials or workmanship on the part of the remanufacturer for a period of time based on the usage and application listed below. Your warranty begins on the original purchase date and does not renew if replaced during the warranty period.


WHAT IS NOT COVERED UNDER THIS WARRANTY?

This warranty does not cover damage or loss due to the following:

  • Damage caused by installation or related vehicle problems is not covered, as well as installation in a vehicle for which it was not designed or purchased for. (Example: the engine must be ordered for the exact vehicle in which it is installed). Only Marine engines can be installed in Marine applications or the warranty is void. Also, you must replace the engine with the same displacement as the original engine (VIN specific).
  • Misuse, maintenance neglect, abuse, vandalism, abnormal operation, environmental conditions, or accidents. Internal modification with after-market performance parts or the use of Nitrous (NOS).
  • Overheating of this engine voids any warranty for labor or replacement. All vehicles are equipped with warning devices (gauges and lights), please be sure they are operational.
  • Damage caused by lack of lubricants or fluids that lead to engine failure will void the warranty. You are asked to maintain your vehicle at regular intervals and be able to provide us with those service records. Fuel washing, or any other dilution of the engine lubricant can void warranty. Damage from electrolysis or where periodic maintenance services required by the manufacturer have not been performed can also void warranty.
  • Failure caused by components or parts not furnished by the remanufacturer.
  • Damage to the engine caused by detonation or pre-ignition.
  • Damage caused to engine thrust bearing from defective torque converters, clutch assemblies, engine or transmission mounts.
  • Applications using turbochargers must be special ordered and do not qualify under this warranty. Vehicles used for racing purposes are not covered.
  • Any repairs not authorized or approved by the remanufacturer will void the warranty. Engines removed without approval will be subject to core credit only.


HOW LONG DOES THE COVERAGE LAST?

Your warranty begins on the original date of purchase. The length of the term is based on usage and application as listed below. Your warranty does not renew if the engine is replaced during the warranty period.

  • Gasoline engines for personal use passenger vehicles and light trucks up to but not including one ton vehicles are warranted for 36 months.
  • Performance Engines are warranted for 24 months.
  • Commercial Vehicles (vehicles used in a business) and 1 Ton vehicles are warranted for 12 months.
  • Diesel Engines are warranted for 12 months / 12,000 miles against defects in materials or workmanship.
  • Farm Use, Industrial, Heavy Duty, are also warranted for 6 months.
  • Cataloged Marine Engines are warranted for 12 months. Only Marine engines can be used in Marine applications.
  • This warranty excludes motor homes and emergency vehicles (ambulance, fire trucks, police vehicles).


WHO GETS THE BENEFIT OF THIS WARRANTY?

This warranty is extended only to the original purchaser and cannot be transferred to anyone at any time. Engines purchased by the installer are warranted to the installer only. You must be able to provide a register receipt in your name for any warranty consideration. Without this receipt, no warranty will be offered.


WHAT WILL THE REMANUFACTURER DO?

If this engine should fail due to a defect in materials or workmanship on their part, the remanufacturer will, at their discretion, either replace the engine, or supply parts necessary to make the repairs. Only those parts furnished by the remanufacturer will be replaced or repaired. Any refund on this engine must be approved by Advance Auto Parts. NO REFUNDS WILL BE APPROVED AFTER 90 DAYS. After the initial 90-day period, the warranty covers replacement or repairs only. Refunds after that time period will be limited to core value only. In order to qualify for labor reimbursement, a licensed, "tax-exempt" garage or repair facility must originally install the engine. Engines installed by individuals or non-licensed garages will be considered "self-installed" and paid at a lower rate. For garage installed engines only, if approved, the remanufacturer will authorize labor to be paid at the "Warranty Rate" of $50.00 per hour, "Mitchell Flat Rate Time" with a maximum payment amount of $500.00 per claim. Repairs that do not correct the problem will not be reimbursed. For "self-installed" engines, the rate will be $25.00 per hour "flat rate", with a maximum of $250.00. Claims will be approved only after the examination of the returned part or parts. The decision of the manufacturer will be final. An engine will only be replaced one time. If the second engine should fail during the warranty period, it must be returned to the store where you will receive core credit only. At that time, it will be shipped, at our expense, to the remanufacturer for a failure analysis. If a factory defect is found, the engine will be replaced and labor approved. If not, then you can have the engine returned at your expense.


WHAT MUST I DO TO PROTECT MY WARRANTY?

You must pay all outstanding invoices for the purchase of the engine. No benefits, payments, repairs, replacements, or remedies are available under the warranty while any invoices for the purchase of the engine remain outstanding. Immediately after discovery of any problem, and prior to the expiration of the warranty period, you must follow the procedures listed below. Failure to do so will void your warranty!

  • Discontinue use of the vehicle if necessary and BEFORE the engine overheats!
  • Contact YOUR INSTALLER and ask him to diagnose the problem. If he determines that the problem may be factory related, call the Advance Auto Parts Warranty Department at (888) 286-6772. The Advance Auto Parts Warranty Department, not the store, will administer the warranty. The Warranty Department operates from 8:00 am to 5:30 pm Eastern Time, Monday through Friday with the exception of holidays.
  • Please have your engine serial number and purchase information available at the time of the call. This will be necessary to process your claim.
  • At the time of your call, we will connect you with the technical experts at the manufacturer to assist you and your mechanic in getting the problem resolved quickly. Your mechanic may be asked to conduct a test to determine the exact problem thereby simplifying the repair process. The cost of this test will be at your expense until the problem is determined to be factory related.
  • If repairs are approved, all removed parts must be retained and returned to your local store for shipment to the manufacturer. No claims can be paid or replacement parts supplied unless these parts are returned.
  • If you are missing any parts when the engine is delivered, please contact us immediately so we can provide them for you. Also, all engines come equipped with a metal tag stamped with the engine serial number. If this tab is removed or tampered with, the warranty is void!


LIMIT ON REMEDIES

The warranty does not cover or provide payment or reimbursement for the following or any other incidental or consequential loss or damage.

Initial start up: Valves must be readjusted to manufacturer's specifications. Due to various component designs, cylinder head re-torque may or may not be required in your particular application. Refer to factory shop manual for the proper procedure for your engine type.

  • Replacement of any fluids or other substances, tune-ups or replacement of belts, hoses or maintenance items, towing charges, vehicle rental, substitute transportation, lodging, or communication expenses.
  • Diagnostic time, service calls, or labor (except as set forth above).
  • Loss of time, income, sales or profits, loss of use of the vehicle, lift, dock, or storage fees.
  • Gaskets or other parts or items associated with, but not included with the engine.
  • Any action for bringing suit must be commenced within 12 months following the time the breach is discovered or should have been discovered.


HOW DOES STATE LAW RELATE TO THIS WARRANTY?

This warranty gives you specific rights and you may have other rights, which vary from state to state. Neither Advance Auto Parts nor the remanufacturer make any other warranty beyond that provided in this limited warranty. It supersedes all prior agreements or representations whether oral or written. Neither Advance Auto Parts nor the remanufacturer authorizes any person to vary in any way, the terms, conditions, or exclusions of this warranty. Should any disclaimer or remedy limit in this warranty be declared or become invalid or unenforceable because of any laws, the remaining terms and conditions shall remain in full force and effect.

 

Remanufactured Transmissions Limited Warranty

GENERAL

  • All warranties set forth herein are those of the manufacturer. The warranty belongs to the person or business whose name is printed on the purchase receipt or Order Confirmation email and cannot be transferred to anyone at any time.
  • Advance Auto Parts hereby disclaims all warranties, expressed or implied, relating to your transmission, including, but not limited to the warranties of merchantability and fitness for particular purpose.


WHAT IS COVERED?

  • Your automatic transmission, is warranted against defects in materials or workmanship for a period of 36 months or 75,000 miles, whichever comes first. Manual transmissions & transfer cases are warranted for 12 months against defect in materials or workmanship from date of purchase. Commercial applications are warranted for 12 months or 12,000 miles whichever comes first. There will be no refunds issued after 90 days from original purchase date.
  • If your transmission fails during the warranty period, please notify the Advance Auto Parts warranty department at (888) 286-6772 between the hours of 8:00 am to 5:30 pm Monday through Friday Eastern time. The warranty department, not the store, will help to administer the warranty with the manufacturer. Should the manufacturer determine that the transmission requires replacement, you must return the alleged defect before you can receive the replacement. There can be no exceptions.
  • This limited warranty also provides partial reimbursement for labor cost in the event the transmission is found to be defective in materials or workmanship under examination by the manufacturer. Labor will be paid only if the transmission is originally installed by a licensed repair facility. Customer will be asked to submit a printed work order for the original installation. No labor is paid for self-installed units.
  • Labor reimbursement is limited to $50.00 per hour based on time allowed by the Mitchell labor guide. All labor payments must be approved by the manufacturer before being paid. $350.00 is the maximum amount paid for replacement or repair, and includes any diagnostic charges to determine the cause of failure.


WHAT IS NOT COVERED?

  • This limited warranty does not cover towing charges, rental vehicles, fluids, inconvenience, loss of time, commercial loss, property damage, personal injury, or any other incidental or consequential loss or damage.
  • This limited warranty does not apply if the transmission has been abused, neglected, improperly maintained, damaged in an accident, modified, improperly installed, or damaged due to the operation of parts or items not furnished with the transmission.
  • Any unauthorized removal or repairs will void the warranty. Before doing anything, please call (888) 286-6772 for warranty assistance.
  • Some units are shipped with auxiliary coolers designed to replace the OE cooler. Failure to install and use this cooler will void warranty for replacement or labor.
  • This limited warranty does not apply to vehicles used commercially for snow removal, or for off road vehicles. This usage will void any warranty.


Note: Please check the transmission before installing. Is this the correct transmission? We try very hard to supply you with the correct transmission, but mistakes can and will happen. The final check is for you to compare the transmission removed from the car with the replacement and make sure everything is correct before installing it. Now is the time to be sure, not after it is installed.


There will be no labor reimbursement for the installation and removal of the wrong transmission.


Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above information may not apply to you. This warranty gives you specific rights, and you may have other rights, which vary from state to state. Advance auto parts does not authorize any person to vary in any way, the terms, conditions, or exclusions of this warranty.

Your refund will be credited to the original method of payment, usually within 7-10 business days, depending on your financial institution.

Returning Items by Mail

How do I return items that were shipped to me?

Review our Return Policy here.

You can always return items you purchase on our site to one of our 4000 store locations. Click here to learn more. If you do not have an Advance Auto Parts store nearby, you can also ship items you want to return to us:

Shipping Items Back

  • Repack the merchandise you would like to return with its original packing materials and place it in the original shipment box.
  • Complete the Merchandise Return Form on the original packing slip and include it in the box.
  • Ship the box via UPS or USPS to the address on the preprinted peel off label. Shipping costs are the responsibility of the customer. We recommend you insure the shipment for the full value of the merchandise to protect against loss.

    Note: Items bought through In-Store Pickup must be returned to an Advance Auto Parts store.

    Please Contact Us for return instructions if your return is due to our error, or if you are unable to locate your Merchandise Return Form.


Receiving Your Refund

Shipping Charges Calculation

How is shipping cost determined? Will the box size and inserts add additional cost when having my items shipped?

Our shipping costs are based on the weight and dimensions of the part that is purchased.

The packaging materials included in your shipment or using a slightly larger shipping container will not increase the shipping and handling fee you will be charged.

 

Spark Plug Gap

Do I need to gap my spark plugs before installing them?

In some cases you might need to change the gap of your new spark plugs to suit the application you are installing them in. Most spark plug manufacturers will pre-gap their spark plugs for their most popular application but considering that same spark plug might fit over a hundred different vehicles or engines, checking that it matches your vehicle's specifications is a good idea.

Modified Vehicles
The correct spark plug gap will prevent pre-ignition and detonation as well as misfires. Certain modifications might require you to change the plug gap for optimal performance.

Adding forced induction or high-compression pistons to an engine will usually require the spark plug gap to be closed slightly. About .004" for every 50 horsepower added is a good starting point.

Likewise, if you are using a high power ignition with increased spark voltage, you can open up the gap .002"-.005" to accommodate the additional spark energy.

Note: It is not recommended to change the gap on spark plugs with multiple ground paths.

Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) Location

How do I locate my car's VIN number?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) began requiring standardized Vehicle Identification Numbers or VIN for short, in 1981 for all road vehicles. The VIN is a 17 digit (vehicles manufactured prior to 1981 might have fewer digits) alphanumeric number that tells you many things about your vehicle.

For example, the first digit is the country code where the vehicle was manufactured. The second digit is the manufacture. The tenth digit is the year model and so on. For additional VIN information and what each character means please visit: http://www.dmv.org/vehicle-history/vin-decoder.php

Locating your VIN
Most vehicles today have the VIN located in multiple locations on the vehicle.
The easiest to find location is usually on the dashboard along where it meets with the windshield, typically on the drivers side.


Another easy to find location is along the driver's side door post. Open the driver's door and look for the VIN near the door latch.

 

Warranties

What kind of Warranties do your products offer?

All products sold on AdvanceAutoParts.com are covered by warranty. Terms and length vary by product. Check individual product pages for the warranty length applicable to each product. Please see below for the full text of our warranty policies.

General Warranty Policy
Advance Auto Limited Warranty- applies to all products not covered by one of the below warranties.

Product Warranty Questions
Please contact Customer Care for any warranty questions.

Engine and Transmission Warranty Claims
If you are experiencing problems with an engine or transmission you purchased from Advance Auto Parts, please call (888) 286-6772, Monday through Friday, 8:00am - 5:30pm Eastern Time. For all other products, please contact Customer Care.

Filters and Manufacturer's Warranties
Consumer purchasers of automotive filters are sometimes told by an automobile dealer's service writer or mechanic that a brand of replacement filter cannot be used in the consumer's vehicle during the warranty period. The claim is made that use of the brand will "void the warranty," with the statement or implication that only the original equipment brand of filters may be used. This, of course, tends to cast doubt on the quality of the replacement filter.

That claim is simply not true. If the consumer asks for the statement in writing, he will not receive it. Nevertheless, the consumer may feel uneasy about using replacement filters that are not original equipment. With the large number of do-it-yourselfers who prefer to install their own filters, this misleading claim should be corrected.

Under the Magnuson - Moss Warranty Act, 15U.S.C. SS 2301-2312 (1982) and general principles of the Federal Trade Commission Act, a manufacturer may not require the use of any brand of filter (or any other article) unless the manufacturer provides the item free of charge under the terms of the warranty.

So, if the consumer is told that only the original equipment filter will not void the warranty, he should request that the OE filter be supplied free of charge. If he is charged for the filter, the manufacturer will be violating the Magnuson - Moss Warranty Act and other applicable law.

By providing this information to consumers, the Filter Manufacturers Council can help to combat the erroneous claim that a brand of replacement filter other than the original equipment will "void the warranty."

It should be noted that the Magnuson - Moss Warranty Act is a federal law that applies to consumer products. The Federal Trade Commission has authority to enforce the Magnuson - Moss Warranty Act, including obtaining injunctions and orders containing affirmative relief. In addition, a consumer can bring suit under the Magnuson - Moss Warranty Act.
