More about Our Transmission Services

Transmission Repair

Experiencing transmission issues like rough shifting, slipping gears, or strange noises? Our team of experts is here to assist you. Utilizing advanced diagnostic tools and techniques, we accurately identify the problem and provide efficient repairs, ensuring your smooth return to the road.

Transmission Fluid Exchange

Maintaining proper transmission fluid levels and quality is vital for your transmission's overall performance and longevity. Over time, fluid can become contaminated, potentially leading to damage. Our technicians perform thorough fluid exchanges, replacing old fluid with fresh, clean fluid to optimize performance.

Transmission Flush

For a more comprehensive service, consider a transmission flush. This process removes old fluid, along with accumulated debris and contaminants, enhancing overall efficiency and lifespan. Using specialized equipment, our skilled technicians ensure your transmission is filled with clean fluid for peak performance.

Transmission Maintenance

Regular maintenance is key to preventing costly repairs and prolonging your transmission's life. Our team conducts routine inspections, checks fluid levels and condition, and identifies potential issues early on. We'll also provide ongoing maintenance recommendations to keep your transmission in top condition.


Signs Your Transmission Might Need Repairs

Detecting early signs of potential transmission issues is crucial for preserving your vehicle's performance. Ignoring these signs could lead to more severe problems down the road, resulting in costly repairs or vehicle breakdowns.

Keep an eye out for these six common indicators that may necessitate professional transmission repairs:

  • Unusual Noises: Whining, clunking, or grinding sounds while the vehicle is in gear could signal underlying transmission problems.
  • Slipping Gears: RPM spikes, delayed or rough shifting, or a sensation of the vehicle slipping out of gear may indicate transmission irregularities.
  • Fluid Leaks: Red or brown puddles beneath the vehicle suggest a potential transmission fluid leak, vital for proper transmission function.
  • Warning Lights: The "Check Engine" light or specific transmission-related warning lights on the dashboard require immediate attention and diagnostics.
  • Burning Odor: A burnt smell, especially with accompanying smoke, suggests potential overheating within the transmission system.
  • Poor Acceleration: Difficulty in acceleration, a lack of power, or a noticeable decrease in vehicle performance may signify underlying transmission troubles.
  • Difficulty Engaging Gears: Issues getting the vehicle into gear, whether it's a manual or automatic transmission, may indicate transmission concerns.

Addressing these signs promptly ensures a proactive approach to potential transmission issues, safeguarding the reliability and longevity of your vehicle. At Christian Brothers Automotive McQueen and Guadalupe, our professionals are prepared to diagnose and tackle complexities, providing comprehensive transmission repairs to keep you confidently on the road.

  • 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.
