4. Install Your Part
To make your life as easy as possible, follow OEM Guidelines.
You want to have an experienced mechanic working on your vehicle.  Try to find an ASE certified mechanic.   The Original Equipment Manufacturer(OEM) requirements and guidelines are the standard that will get you the best outcome and allow Hazers to always warranty. Not following OEM requirements and guidelines will void your warranty if that is the reason the part went bad.  We know that sometimes you won't follow all OEM guidelines, and we are still willing to work with you on this but please know that this may void your warranty so it is important that you have an experienced mechanic who knows what to do and not do for your vehicle. 
For the warranty of your powertrain part to stay valid, especially for extended warranties, you need to keep records of the maintenance performed on your vehicle.  The maintenance needs to follow the requirements of your vehicle's manufacturer.  It should at a minimum include oil changes, service-interval maintenances from your owner's manual, and work done for manufacturer recalls.

Install your Part
Verify the part and its condition with your mechanic before installation and compare against the notes on your invoice.  Plan out the major steps of your install, this will save you a possible headache later.

Below are some best-practices guidelines for installing your major power-train items:

Engines
      1. Your engine arrives with no filter, no oil, and no coolant in it.
      2. Compare your replacement engine to your existing engine, you may need to swap brackets, sensors, wire harness, or other items.
      3. Check all prior computer codes and resolver these codes before your continue as these codes can make new problems.
      4. Consult your mechanic or local dealership for technical service bulletins (TSB's) for problematic items or manufacturer defects that can be addressed while the engine is out.  TSB's often include helpful procedures.
      5. At a minimum to make the install worth the while, change out the water pump, thermostat, spark plugs, air filter, fuel filter, oil filter, engine oil, engine coolant, and flush the cooling system.
      6. You may need to replace the timing chain, belts, gears, coolant hoses, front & rear main seals, freeze plugs, valve gaskets, pan gasket, and clean the oil sump screen and pickup tube.  Double check the engine timing if you are replacing the timing chain or belt.
Transmissions (Manual and Automatic)
      1. Compare your replacement transmission to your existing transmission , you may need to swap brackets, sensors, wire harness, or other items.
      2. Check all prior computer codes and resolver these codes before your continue as these codes can make new problems.
      3. For transmissions with serviceable filters, the transmission has no filter nor fluid in it.  You will need to install both the filter and fluid along with a new gasket.
      4. Consult your mechanic or local dealership for technical service bulletins (TSB's) for problematic items or manufacturer defects that can be addressed while the transmission is out.  TSB's often include helpful procedures.
      5. Remove Torque Converter Bracket
      6. Replace all seals: front, rear, axle, and drive shaft seals
      7. If your transmission is a manual, replace throw out bearing, pilot bushing, and clutch.
      8. Fill torque converter with fluid before installing it.  Be careful in aligning the torque converter onto the transmission and engine as misalignment is a common way to damage the transmission and transmission pump.
      9. Flush and inspect the  transmission, cooler, and lines.  If you don't have access to a flusher, flush the lines and at least replace your transmission cooling radiator.  Some transmission cannot handle these shortcuts so consult an experienced and certified mechanic.
      10. Adjust the Throttle position sensor cable.
      11. Re-Program the transmission.  This a complicated process that also involves the transmission relearning its setting and values.  Often the dealership is required to do this as the software is not released yet.  Lack of or or improper programming is the #1 failure in transmission installations.  Failure to do this will destroy your transmission very quickly.
      12. Clear all computer and fault codes.
Transfer Cases
      1. Compare your replacement Transfer Case to your existing transmission , you may need to swap brackets, sensors, wire harness, or other items.
      2. Check all prior computer codes and resolver these codes before your continue as these codes can make new problems.
      3. The Transfer Case has no  fluid in it.  You will need to install new fluid.
      4. Consult your mechanic or local dealership for technical service bulletins (TSB's) for problematic items or manufacturer defects that can be addressed while the Transfer Case is out.  TSB's often include helpful procedures.
      5. Replace input seals, output seals, and gasket between the Transfer Case and Transmission.
      6. Install Transfer Case Motor according to manufacture specifications.
Front and Rear Axle Assemblies
      1. Compare your replacement Axle Assembly  to your existing Axle Assembly, you may need to swap brackets, sensors, wire harness, breather tubes, or other items.
      2. Install new axle seals, pinion seals, valve cover gasket, and lubricating fluid.
      3. Consult your mechanic or local dealership for technical service bulletins (TSB's) for problematic items or manufacturer defects that can be addressed while the Axle Assembly is out.  TSB's often include helpful procedures.
      4. Make sure that the breather tube is not clogged.  If it's clogged the internal pressure and heat will force out the oil and destroy your Axle Assembly.
      5. If the rear end is remanufactured or is rebuilt with new components, be aware of the Break-In period in which you cannot tow large loads until the gears are broke in.
5. Return your Core to get some money back
Make sure to do this before returning your core:
    1. don't fully dismantle your core
    2. drain all the fluids
    3. make sure your engine still spins
If your core is not that way, still talk to your customer service rep. because he or she will still try to get you a good refund on your core.

Here are the details that the team is looking for when handling your core:
    • Drain all fluids such as oil and coolant so we can pass the savings onto you.
    • All cores need to have an undamaged housing. For example: Engines and transmissions shouldn't be cracked.
    • To keep your full core refund on engines:
      • All engines need to be in the same condition as a long block. This means that they need to have timing covers, valve covers, oil pans, and flywheels.
      • The engine should not be dismantled past what a long block consists of.
      • There should not be excessive rust.
      • The crankshaft has to be able to spin 720 degrees.
      • Diesel engines must include; turbo, fuel system, and injectors.
    • Before dropping off your core, notify your sales representative of your core return in order to receive your RMA number. To keep full core value and not delay a refund, write down your RMA number on the core.
