Transmission Services

The automatic transmission in modern vehicles is an extremely complex mechanical system that requires an expert to repair. If you’re running into issues with your transmission, bring your vehicle to our professional mechanics so we can ensure that you’re back on the road as safely as can be. In many cases, you may just need a simple transmission fluid flush. We will flush out the old fluid and fill it with clean, new fluid so your vehicle runs as smoothly as possible. However, there may be some other underlying problems that need attention.

If your car seems to shift erratically or run rough, it’s likely related to the transmission system. Let us perform a full diagnostic test so we can remedy the issue and get you back on the road as soon as possible. Fortunately, most transmission issues can be fixed with a few minor adjustments. And in more severe cases, we have the tools and the skills to make major repairs. We will check all internal and external parts of your transmission including the housing and case. This will allow us to dig deeper into the problem and try to make a diagnosis.

There are a few things that may need to be done when a transmission rebuild is involved. Some of these services include:

  • Cleaning the valve body unit
  • Replacing or realigning all transmission bands and replacing any worn out or broken internal parts
  • Inspecting and cleaning the torque converter and replacing all seals and gaskets including rings
  • Replacing friction plates and filters, where applicable
  • Inspecting all electronic components of your transmission system to ensure that everything is working correctly

With these simple tests, some thorough cleaning, and replacing any worn-out parts, your transmission should work as good as new. Fortunately, most drivers simply need a transmission flush. Over time, the fluid breaks down and suffers from exposure to extremely high temperatures. This causes your transmission system to lose lubrication. A full flush will replace all of the old fluid and remove any leftover contaminants. Clean fluid is added and you’re on your way to a better experience no matter where you drive.

Our experienced technicians can address any issues related to your transmission. Whether you have CVT, DCT, or DSG transmission, we work on all makes and models including domestic, European, and Asian vehicles. You can trust our team to get your transmission working properly so you can drive safely in any situation.
