Transmission Repair

The transmission is the heart of your car, quietly and powerfully converting engine power into forward motion. But even this reliable workhorse needs your attention and care to keep the wheels turning smoothly. While your transmission might not be able to tell you directly when it needs servicing, it leaves subtle clues for you to pick up on.

Signs your transmission might need repairs:

  • Hesitant or Jerky Shifting: Does your car struggle to switch gears, hesitating or clunking as it changes? These sounds could indicate worn-out components within the transmission, needing expert diagnosis and repair.
  • Vibrations and Shuddering: Feeling your car tremble or shudder during acceleration, especially uphill, can be caused by insufficient or contaminated transmission fluid. This fluid plays a crucial role in lubrication and cooling.
  • Burning Odor: If you detect a faint burning smell from the engine bay, it could be a symptom of overheating transmission fluid. This internal friction signifies potential component damage and requires immediate attention to prevent serious breakdowns.
  • Illuminated Check Engine Light: Don't dismiss that unwelcome warning light on your dashboard! It might be pointing to a transmission issue, urging you to schedule a qualified inspection before the problem worsens.
  • Whining or Grinding Noises: A constant whining or grinding sound from the transmission area is a clear indicator of internal wear and tear. Delaying service can lead to costly repairs and an increased risk of failure.

Ignoring these signals could result in unnecessary breakdowns and expensive repairs.

If you are experiencing issues with your transmission bring your vehicle to our shop. Our technicians will perform a thorough diagnosis to identify the problem and provide an effective repair solution. We use state-of-the-art equipment and quality parts to ensure that your transmission is restored to its optimal condition.

Transmission Fluid Flush

Regular maintenance of your transmission fluid is essential to keep your transmission running smoothly. Over time, the fluid can become contaminated or lose its effectiveness, leading to poor performance and potential damage. Our transmission fluid flush service includes draining the old fluid, replacing it with fresh fluid, and inspecting the transmission for any signs of wear or leaks.

Transmission Rebuild

In some cases, a complete transmission rebuild may be necessary. Our technicians have the expertise to disassemble your transmission, inspect each component for wear or damage, and replace any faulty parts. We will then reassemble the transmission, ensuring that it functions properly and meets factory specifications.

Transmission Maintenance

Preventive maintenance is key to extending the lifespan of your transmission. Our transmission maintenance services include regular inspections, fluid checks, and adjustments to keep your transmission in optimal condition. Our technicians will also provide recommendations for any necessary repairs or replacements to prevent future problems.

  • Q. "What factors determine the price of transmission repair?"
    Many different factors go into determining costs of transmission repair. The major factor is what type of vehicle you drive. The year, make and model of the car, determine how much parts and labor will cost. Another factor is how much damage the transmission has sustained. Your transmission should last a minimum of 100,000 miles by servicing your transmission on a regular basis.
  • Q. "What does automatic transmission service include?"
    Fluid is first drained from the pan during an automatic transmission service. A new transmission filter is installed with a new pan gasket once the pan has been removed. Finally, fresh automatic transmission fluid (ATF) is used to refill the vehicle.
  • Q. "Is there a difference between a transmission fluid change and flush?"
    During a transmission fluid and filter change, it’s only the fluid in the pan that is drained and replaced with new ATF. Four to five quarts of fluid will typically be replaced in this process, while nine to thirteen quarts are replaced during a full transmission fluid flush. The difference in amounts is because the complete flush drains the entire system.
  • Q. "Do you offer a shuttle service?"
    Yes! we understand you have a full schedule. Whether you need to get to work, school, or need to attend to other responsibilities, we can take you where you need to go. Click here to learn more.
