How do I Know if there is a Problem with My Transmission?
There are more than 100 units of Aside from the warning lights found on most vehicles or red puddles on your driveway, certain telltale signals could be early warnings of a problem in the making. With manual transmissions, you may notice shifting from one gear to the next is more difficult than it once was. The gear shifter may even pop out of place on its own from time to time. These are obvious signs you need transmission repairs.
For manual, automatic, or CVT transmissions, you may begin to feel an odd vibration while driving or hear grinding or thumping sounds. Either of these could be caused by anything from worn or improperly balanced tires to loose suspension components. We offer free diagnostics and road testing, so let us get to the root of your troubles before going to any unnecessary transmission replacement expenses.
What are My Options?
Plenty of vehicle owners prefer new parts for their repairs, especially when it comes to the drive train, and there’s nothing wrong with that. Used transmissions without warranties or guarantees could easily present the same issues as the one you’re replacing. Many of our customers have learned a nice compromise is available in the form of remanufactured transmissions.
These transmissions have been taken apart and thoroughly inspected. Any worn or damaged parts and seals are replaced. The result is a reliable alternative at a fraction of the cost of a new transmission. We have more than 100 remanufactured transmissions in stock but, if we don’t have the one you need, we’ll gladly order it from one of our suppliers.
Inside the casing you see on the surface, transmissions are made up of different gears. In many cases, when a transmission “goes out,” it may not need to be replaced altogether. Dismantling it and replacing only the damaged components could easily resolve the issue. Our ASE certified team is capable of performing custom transmission rebuilds and installs right here in the shop. If you want to handle the removal and installation yourself, bring your damaged transmission to us, and we can deliver a new or remanufactured one right to your door.
