Transmission Repair McKinney

As a car owner, you need to be very selective about who you trust to service your transmission.  It's important to put your vehicle only in the hands of someone with experience in transmission repairs, transmission overhauls, and transmission replacements.  For peace of mind and assurance of satisfaction, come to the experts at The Transmission Shop McKinney!  Problems with an automatic transmission are intricate and require a specialist.  They are not issues you'd want just any general auto repair mechanic to fix.  Not only does proper servicing of transmissions require expertise, but also specialized diagnostic tools and equipment.  


At The Transmission Shop McKinney, you can always be sure of top-notch service and dependable transmission work, including:  transmission diagnoses, inspections, repairs, removal, and/or installation of a new transmission.  At our shop, our technicians have extensive experience in ALL types of transmission repair service.  This is true regardless of the make, model, or age of your particular vehicle.  Our technicians are also trained and certified to service both automatic and manual transmissions on both domestic and foreign vehicles.  
We can have your transmission running like new!  In addition, we offer a warranty for our transmission repairs for the next 3 years or 36,000 miles.  This ensures that we stand behind our work and take pride in our high standards of customer satisfaction.  
At The Transmission Shop in McKinney, our certified technicians will inspect your transmission in a timely manner and best of all, the complete diagnostic is FREE of charge.  Our experts will accurately determine whether you have an external minor transmission repair or an internal transmission repair.  
At The Transmission Shop McKinney, we often receive calls from customers who have been told by their general auto repairman that they need a brand new transmission.  Understandingly, they are upset and have already been inconvenienced.  In seeking out a second opinion, they bring their vehicle to The Transmission Shop McKinney for a more specific diagnosis.  Often, frustration turns into relief when we examine the vehicle and conclude that the car did not require a new transmission!  In some cases, a minor repair was needed, such as fixing a loose cable, an electrical connection, or a fuse.  Early detection can sometimes catch a transmission issue before it requires major repair work.  Sadly, many drivers are convinced by a general mechanic that they are getting a good deal, when in reality the cost could have been avoided.  
If you think your vehicle may have a transmission problem, do not delay in getting a diagnosis.  Ignoring the signs of a possible transmission problem usually ends up costing much more in the future.  Some examples of warning signs are:
  • The transmission slips
  • Fluid on the ground where you were just parked
  • The transmission fluid has a burnt odor
  • The color of your transmission fluid is brown or another dark color
  • The RPM's on your engine go higher than normal
  • Strange and excessive noise or vibrations
  • Shifting from one gear to the next takes longer or is harder for your vehicle to complete

All of the above problems are easily noticed and indicate a transmission problem.  Why risk needing more extensive and costly work done in the future?  Or ending up in the unfortunate position of being stranded on the side of the road?  We recommend having your vehicle checked and serviced on time with the manufacturer's recommended schedule.  This will extend the life of your transmission and may prevent major inconveniences as well as unnecessary, avoidable costs.  
One common cause of transmission failure is excessive heat.  Transmission fluid helps protect your transmission from overheating.  It is important to have your transmission fluid changed as recommended.  When your transmission fluid is not being changed properly, it results in the fluid breaking down.  Without transmission fluid, your transmission will overheat and can become damaged very easily.  
Another source of wear and tear on your transmission is frequent driving in heavy stop and go traffic.  Although sometimes unavoidable, this can wreak havoc on your transmission.  To assist in preventing damage, an external transmission cooler can be installed.  This will help relieve the damage cause by stop and go traffic and will allow your transmission to run cooler.  Why not consider installing an external transmission cooler and prolong the life expectancy of your transmission?  Call The Transmission Shop in McKinney for assistance today!
We offer complete Drive Train Services on Automatic Transmissions, Clutch Assemblies, Clutches and Clutch Hydraulics, Manual Transmissions, Axles and Differentials, Transfer Cases, as well as Transmission Fluid and Filter maintenance service.

Transmissions come in a wide range of gears or speeds.  They range from the older two-speed power glides to the current eight-speed overdrives used in vehicles today. In addition, we now have constant velocity transmissions or CVTs.  A CVT is a one-speed transmission that does not shift. Most CVT transmissions are not manufactured in a way that allows them to be rebuilt.
There are many types of transmission repairs, so the cost will vary.  If your vehicle needs an external repair, it's usually a minor problem.  Your transmission may require a transmission overhaul, also called a transmission rebuild.  Several factors must be considered to determine a fair cost, including whether your vehicle has rear or front wheel drive, overdrive, 4x4, or all wheel drive.  In a scenario with a 4x4 or all wheel drive vehicle, there is a transfer case component to transfer motion to all four wheels.
We also consider the many variations of manufacturers.  While you may own a domestic vehicle, you might have a transmission that is also found in a foreign vehicle or vice versa.  
Although all transmissions function on the same principal, they may have different components.  You may find one type of transmission that has a few simple sensors or solenoids, while others may also have a transmission control module, or TCM.  There are also some transmissions that also depend on a power control module, or PCM in addition to the sensors or solenoids.  All of the different components are connected by a single harness.  Over time, this harness may rub against another component or simply become brittle with age.  It is also not uncommon for vehicles used and parked in rural areas to become a nesting place for rodents.  In this case, if a rodent gnaws on the wiring, it creates a short.  

There are also modules, similar to those in a household computer, which need to be updated with the most current software.  This in itself may resolve transmission problems.  
At The Transmission Shop McKinney, we are proud of our ability to properly diagnose your vehicle in a timely manner, and perform reliable transmission services for all of our customers.  We have the utmost confidence that we can save you money by not charging for unnecessary repairs.  We warranty all of our transmission repairs with confidence!
