    Hello from Maryland

    Just joined to learn about better options for scrapping cars and auto parts. Usually I buy something from a salvage auction for the parts to rebuild a car I have and then part out the unneeded usable parts and scrap the rest. With car bodies only 5.75 cents/lb around here I was hoping to sell the major unusable parts separately. For example, the transmission in a 2013 Dodge Dart with cracked side pan would add only $10 to the car body so I want to see what it might sell for by itself as a core.

    Welcome from western PA. I mainly buy catalytic converters. I can tell you a Dodge Dart transmission would not have a core value. Diesel trucks, old 350 chevys, some Ford trucks are the main core value transmissions right now.

    They have no value as a core. You can scrap transmissions as dirty aluminum or tear it apart to get some clean aluminum.
