Need Transmission Repair?

The transmission is one your car’s most important components.  Simply put, it’s like a “power switchboard” for your car.  It takes the power generated by the engine and transmits it to your car’s wheels.  It essentially “regulates” the engine to produce the power you need in every situation – uphill, downhill on the highway or a quiet country road.  It’s also your vehicle’s most complex component.  So, if there is a transmission problem, it’s not something that most people would know how, or should even attempt to fix.

Auto Transmission Repair - Common Warning Signs To Look For

Transmission issues happen sooner in some cars than they do in others, but inevitably all vehicles will need a trip to the transmission repair shop. The key to avoiding costly transmission services (including repairs and rebuilds), is to know the early warning signs to keep an eye out for:

  • Problems Shifting Gears
    Your vehicle refuses or struggles to change gears, or the pedal doesn't go down or drops to the floor - you may even hear a clunking noise when trying to shift


  • Transmission slipping
    Your vehicle unexpectedly switches gears or it slips our of gear while driving. High RPM's and or a delay in your vehicle's acceleration may also be indicators. In some cases, you may hear a change in pitch or a noise with the sudden gear switch.


  • Grinding Sounds When Shifting
    Cars and trucks with an automatic transmission may notice a grinding or shaking that occurs when a change of gear occurs. 


  • Unusual Noises (and Whining Sounds)
    If you hear something out of the ordinary - humming, whining, clunking, rumbling or thud noises (none of which are good sounds to hear from your car or truck) may be an indicator for concern. 


  • Loss of Power or Unresponsive
    Your car starts but will not move when attempting to place in gear.

  • Burning Odor
    You notice burning smells coming from your vehicle's engine.  


  • Low or Leaking Transmission Fluid
    If you notice red fluid on your garage floor or driveway or experience unexpected up or down shifting, or a spike in your RPM's you may have fluid issues.



We look forward to servicing your vehicle.

Keep Your Transmission Running With Preventative Service Maintenance 

Routine transmission maintenance is the key to ensuring a long and healthy life on the road for your car, SUV or truck. Service your vehicle at regular maintenance intervals (timing depends on your vehicle) for the following:

  • Transmission fluid checks

  • Cooling system check

  • Transmission fluid changes

  • Change transmission filter

  • Not drive on your spare tire for extended period of time

  • Never change gears while the vehicle is in motion

  • Let the car warm up before you start driving
