Manual Transmission Repair in El Cajon, California
Serving San Diego County Since 1993
West El Cajon Services
Standard transmission. Stick shift. They’re interchangeable terms for what we call a manual transmission. The term ‘standard’ actually comes from a time in the automotive industry when you had to pay extra for an automatic transmission. But today, we work to ensure people understand the differences between the two. Why? Because knowing the differences between transmissions helps people understand what they need from their auto repair shop. Our ATRA-certified technicians have multiple decades of combined experience, enabling us to bring you the best in manual transmission repair. Our state-of-the-art facilities are filled to the brim with innovative diagnostics machinery and the tools necessary to execute even the most complex of transmission repairs. And to top it all off, all of our transmission work comes with a 3-year/100,000-mile industry-leading warranty that gives you peace of mind, even after you drive away from our auto repair shop.
Most Common Problems
Just like every other system in your vehicle, manual transmissions have their own stereotypical problems that come along with them. And it is no shock to someone that a system as important as your transmission can become a very expensive fix. That is why we keep our pricing as competitive as possible so that dealerships can’t prey on unsuspecting customers. You deserve an alternative you can afford, and that is what we are here to provide: a stable, affordable auto repair shop where manual transmission repairs are a breeze. As always, sticking to a preventative maintenance schedule is always key. But if you ever find yourself in a sticky situation, knowing what to look out for can help in many ways. So, how do you know if your manual transmission needs a repair? You keep an eye, ear, and nose out for anything that may be off. If you are experiencing any delay in shifting or a lack of vehicular response after shifting, that signals a creeping issue requiring a professional hand. If you smell anything burning, contact us immediately to identify the source. If you hear any sort of humming, whining, buzzing, or grinding whenever you shift gears, that is a much larger issue that needs to be tackled as soon as possible. However, one of the most recognizable symptoms is leaking transmission fluid from beneath the vehicle. A leak of any sort toward the front of the vehicle could signal a hose or gasket failure that needs to be fixed. Leaking transmission fluid means all of those metal parts are grinding together, creating heat that can no longer be filtered through the system and dispelled. If left for too long untended, this could lead to you needing an entirely new manual transmission, which is no good for anyone involved.
