Speedy Transmission Repair

The transmission is an intricate piece of machinery made up of many different parts that work in tandem. Due to its complex inner workings, a standard repair can take anywhere from one to three days in-shop. For instance, if our mechanics don't have to remove the transmission from the vehicle's chassis, repairs are lightning-quick, and we often complete them same-day. On the other hand, a full rebuild is by nature a laborious and intensive task. It may take a few days in-house to give your transmission the reboot it needs.

Whatever the task ahead of us, we pledge a speedy result. We understand that you depend on your car—so we do our part to make sure you don't have to do without it any longer than necessary. We work hard to deliver the results you need in the quick time you want. It's what makes us such a trusted name in our industry—and Elk Grove Village's leading transmission repair shop.

Common Transmission Problems

Transmission problems can present themselves in a wide variety of ways. Here are three of the most common:

  1. Clutch
    If your clutch jams then this can be very problematic. A jammed clutch can result in the amount of solenoid in your clutch becoming locked resulting in the amount of transmission fluid in the torque converter being miscalculated.
  2. Fluid Leaks
    If your vehicle's transmission slips, you may have a fluid leak. Fluid leaks can be caused by many things, but they're primarily due to a gap somewhere in your transmission. It could be a gap in your gasket, torque, fluid lines, transmission pan, or the seals. Whatever the source, we'll help you out by locating the issue and sealing it up.
  3. Solenoid
    If your transmission is slipping but you cannot detect any leaks then chances are there is an issue with the solenoid. This can occur because of insufficient fluid levels and other electronic problems. They need to be addressed quickly to ensure the problem doesn't worsen.
  4. Torque Converter
    If the needle bearings in your torque converter become damaged then you will most likely hear some very strange noises coming from your transmission when you change gears. It is very important that this problem is addressed immediately.

Not sure what these technical terms mean? No problem. Keep an eye out for these everyday consequences of transmission failure:

  • Your check engine light is on
  • You notice strange odors around the car's hood or underbody
  • Your car stalls when you press the gas pedal
  • You detect fluid stains underneath your car
  • Your shift handle gets stuck often
  • Your car struggles when in reverse
  • Your car moves when in park or neutral

If you notice any of these symptoms occurring in your vehicle, book an inspection with our crew right away. We'll make sure to perform a comprehensive diagnostic assessment to get to the bottom of the problem. We can then give you an upfront, no-obligation quote for any necessary repairs. That way, you'll know precisely what to expect from our services.
