Transmission & Clutch

Smooth is what we want in a car, truck, SUV or hybrid, especially as you go from gear to gear. When it comes to gear-transition, we’re talking about the transmissions! This does include the clutch, whether you’re applying it manually, or your vehicle “does it for you” in an automatic vehicle.

In order to fully understand what’s happening with your vehicle’s transmission, your description is always helpful and we may also need to run a diagnostic test in order to get the full view of what may be happening, or not happening, with your vehicle’s transmission and/or clutch.

These are a few of the main points and parts that come into play when we’re diagnosing, repairing or servicing transmission or clutch issue:

Automatic transmission services: diagnoses & repairs

Axle shafts

Clutch master cylinders

Clutch replacement

Clutch slave cylinders

Computer and electronic diagnoses

Differential service & repair

Flywheel resurfacing & replacement

Four-wheel drive services: diagnoses & repairs

Manual transmission services: diagnoses & repairs

Service clutch hydraulic systems

Transaxle rebuild/repair

Transmission cooler lines & hoses

Transmission fluid leak detection & repair

Transmission rebuild/repair

Does your vehicle feel kind of jerky as it’s going from a gear and into a new one?
Does it seem like one gear is particularly “rough” to get in or out of?
Is there a strange leak that you can’t identify?

Those may be indicators that a look at your transmission or clutch may be in order. There are other symptoms, of course, but those are a couple of the main ones.

As always, if your vehicle develops a new or strange behavior, try to have that looked at as soon as possible. We just want you safe.

Give us a call or schedule a service & we’ll take a good look at your transmission & clutch for you.

Great service. Everyone is so professional - I know exactly what they are going to do and how much it costs. It is so helpful that they call and remind me when my car needs service, and then they send me a thank you note after the service. They also offer a shuttle that will take you home.

I have been going to Tom’s for a while now to have my 2006 Scion worked on. They do quality work and at a good price. Very professional and honest, great staff to work with. I am saddened that I am moving down to Arizona at the end of the month and will no longer be able to have my car serviced at Tom’s. I hope I can find a new one like them down there. Thanks for all your services over the years. Jeff
