Manual & Automatic Transmission Repair & Service

Many drivers mistakenly think that only vehicles with manual transmissions need transmission service, but this isn’t the case–even automatic transmissions need regular maintenance to prevent repairs. Cars with a manual transmission should have the fluid flushed and replaced every 30,000 to 60,000k miles; automatics should have this service performed every 60,000 to 100,000k miles. You can find specific recommendations for your car in your owner’s manual or ask one of our friendly service advisors to look it up for you!

Transmission service is essential because transmission fluid deteriorates over time. If you do a lot of driving in stop-and-go traffic, haul heavy loads, or tow a trailer, you may need to have your transmission serviced more frequently. These driving conditions increase the transmission’s operating temperature, which breaks the transmission fluid down quicker. Manual and automatic transmissions will also eventually need a clutch replacement. Most clutches are designed to last about 60,000 miles, but this can vary depending on your driving style.

Super nice people, Conner was at the front desk as well as another person but I didn’t catch her name. Both were helpful. The shop couldn’t repair my issue due to the manufacturer requiring specific tools. They did a safety inspection and didn’t charge me for it or for the diagnostics since they couldn’t perform the fix!
