Transmission Repair


Stop and go driving, mountain or hot weather driving, rocking a vehicle in snow or mud, or boat or RV towing affecting your transmission?

All of the above driving conditions create problems for the second most expensive mechanical component of today's vehicles, the transmission.

If your vehicle is subjected to any or all of these conditions or if your transmission fluid is losing its pink or red color, a transmission check should be high on your list of preventative maintenance. Unfortunately, many people neglect the transmission until rough or hard shifting has begun or until the fluid has the odor of burnt toast. Most vehicles today have no band adjustments as older vehicles did and most are set up to allow only a partial drain (which is similar to changing your oil and throwing a quart of dirty oil back in).

Another reason for the accelerated schedule of transmission checks is that failure of the vacuum modulator could result in complete transmission failure.

Here at Petersen's Automotive we recommend a change of transmission fluid every 60,000 miles.

Auto Transmission Repair Inspection

Before we get into the gears, we always begin with an inspection. Our mechanics will utilize a combination of expert knowledge and computer diagnostic systems to assess the condition of your transmission. The inspection will give us the insight to understand exactly where the failure lies and what steps we will need to take to repair it. The cost for transmission repair may vary depending on the results of our diagnostic testing.

The result will be a detailed cost breakdown and service quote. We’re proud to offer accurate estimates that stand from beginning to end. Around here, there are no surprises: only good, honest work and clear prices.

Electrical Transmission Service

Nowadays, most transmissions are a combination of electrical and mechanical components. Our mechanics are trained to perform all repairs necessary to get you back on the road. If you have a computer-controlled transmission—as is likely in an automatic vehicle—you may experience a connection failure or an improperly calibrated sensor. This may cause the vehicle to shift too early or too late. We will perform the necessary repairs to get your electrical transmission back up and running.

Transmission Fluid Change

Alternatively, you may experience a mechanical failure, such as a leaking transmission. In most cases, we can reseal the transmission without even removing it from the vehicle. If the seal is not broken, but the fluid has become contaminated, we will need to replace it. We will change the filter and fluid according to the recommendations listed in your vehicle’s owner’s manual. It’s important to change your transmission fluid approximately every two years.

Transmission Flush

This transmission repair is meant to remove all the dirt, dust, and grime that has accumulated in your transmission. Our mechanics will remove the old oil and replace it with fresh oil. Peak efficiency is right around the corner at Petersen's Automotive LLC.

Transmission Rebuild and Replacement

In some cases, your transmission will need to be removed from the vehicle and rebuilt or replaced. This extremely specialized work is our specialty. Our mechanics are professionally certified to perform transmission rebuilds that are, in most cases, even better than the original factory models.
