Automatic Transmission Repair and Installation

You probably don’t think about the transmission of your car – until it doesn’t work. And these days, the transmission is more than just a collection of gears, pistons, and hydraulic fluid. Modern electronics have made automatic transmissions much more powerful and fuel-efficient, but also much harder to diagnose and fix.

Transmission overhaul and repair is one of the biggest investments you ever may need to make on your vehicle – but, especially since the pandemic, it still may cost less than investing in a new car.

Signs that your car may be experiencing transmission problems may include:

  • Slowness to switch gears, especially from park to drive
  • Grinding noises when switching gears
  • Unresponsive vehicle: will not go into gear or goes to the wrong one
  • Fluid leaks
  • Burning smell

Transmission service may be a simple tune-up for better performance. It can also help prevent or solve major problems and safety issues with your vehicle.

Depending on the location of the repair needed, transmission repair may be as simple as replacing a few parts. It may also involve removing the transmission from the car and partially disassembling it to get to the problem.

If we determine that your transmission is worn or damaged beyond repair, we will keep you fully informed through the process of replacing it. We will source the parts and complete the replacement as efficiently as possible.
