Transmission Replacement
In motor vehicles, the transmission usually refers to the gear box, which uses gears and gear trains to transmit speed and torque from a rotating power source to another device. You can have your car's transmission replaced with a new, rebuilt, remanufactured, repaired or used transmission. For more information contact American Tire and Car Care in Reno, NV. Our experienced service technicians can help you make the best decision for your vehicle and your wallet.

Transmission Repair
Our services include transmission repair on both manual and automatic transmissions. The first step in getting you back on the road is assessing your transmission to accurately determine the source of the problem. In some cases, we are able to repair your transmission simply with adjustments, replacing external seals, or replacing accessible parts. To have this done by specialists, call 775-786-8473 to talk to the mechanics of American Tire and Car Care today.

Transmission Repair and Rebuild
When it comes to automatic transmission repair, there are several options: buying a new one, buying a remanufactured one or having yours rebuilt. Each of the above options has its own share of advantages and disadvantages. Of the three options, rebuilt transmissions are the most economical. A rebuilt transmission involves removing the transmission from the car, disassembling it, replacing worn out parts, reassembling it, and then reinstalling it. To have this done by specialists, call 775-786-8473 to talk to the mechanics of American Tire and Car Care today.

Transmission Flush
Although most manufacturers recommend a transmission flush every 30,000 miles or every two years, some symptoms may indicate that you need a transmission flush sooner. Some of the symptoms that indicate that your car needs a transmission flush sooner are: transmission grinding or strange noises, problems shifting gears, slipping gears, surging of the car, and delay in vehicle movement. Flushing the used fluid from the transmission washes away tiny particles of dirt, clutch material, and metal shavings. For all your transmission flush needs, call 775-786-8473 or visit American Tire and Car Care today - we are transmission experts.

Timing Belt
A timing belt is a part of your car's internal combustion engine. The belt synchronizes the camshaft and the crankshaft rotation so that the engine valves open and close at the correct timings. Also, the belt prevents the piston from striking the valves in an interference engine. A timing Belt is a rubber belt that usually features teeth on the inside surface, while a timing chain is a metal roller chain. Most cars we drive now have timing belts instead of timing chains and gears. Although different manufacturers have their recommended mileage, you need to have your car's timing belt checked regularly. To have it checked by experts, contact American Tire and Car Care today.

Cylinder Head
A cylinder head is the closed end of a cylinder (located in a car's engine block). It sits above the cylinder block, closing the top of the cylinder and forming the combustion chamber. The cylinder head coordinates airflow in and out of the engine. Since the cylinder head's chief function is to seal the cylinders properly, insufficient compression results in the car being difficult to drive. To have your cylinder head checked and repaired, talk to American Tire and Car Care's cylinder head repair and reconditioning specialists today.

Cylinder Block
A cylinder block is the powerhouse for the motor vehicle. The solid cast car part houses the cylinders and their components (gaskets, valves, and seals) inside a lubricated and cooled crankcase. Since it is one of the most important parts of your car, the block is designed to be extremely strong and sturdy. Although strong and sturdy, the block is susceptible to failure resulting in a vehicle that won't start. Cracked blocks, porous blocks, core plug, or freeze plug failure are some of the problems facing cylinder blocks. Call 775-786-8473 to talk to the mechanics of American Tire and Car Care about your cylinder block problems.

Authorized Jasper Dealer
Give Your Vehicle a New Lease on Life with JASPER. That big oil slick in your driveway or those strange noises from under your hood don't have to mean you'll be saddled with a new car payment soon. Instead, your trusted installer at American Tire and Car Care can drop in a completely remanufactured JASPER gas or diesel engine, transmission or differential and get you back on the road again quickly!

  • Got excellent mechanic service, and I plan to go back again. My car was in and out very fast. I was glad to have my catalytic converter swapped. Thanks guys !!!
    -Michi Garibay

  • Top of the line auto care facility!! The owner was incredibly friendly and helpful from our very first interaction over the phone! Not only did he make me a great deal on a set of tires, but he was patient and understanding when I was an airhead. I was in Reno from across the state for a conference and decided to get tires installed while in town. The tires were installed just before my conference was set to begin. Top of the line customer service!! My husband and I will return for our next set of tires for sure. As a first impression of the Reno area, I was impressed! Thanks Mike and Kane!
    -Jamie Nichole

  • During a road trip from Portland to Reno, we noticed the tire pressure warning light was on. We had just bought four new tires prior to this trip and wanted to check it out. When in Reno, Mike McGriff was great. He looked at our tires, found they were inflated way over the recommended PSI, took some air out and reassured us about continuing our journey. Thanks, Mike, you went out of your way to help us!!!!
    -John Stoffregen

  • Mike (the owner) and his team are absolutely AMAZING! Truly genuine guys. I took in my car with some details about what was going on, and they knew exactly what was wrong. Not to mention they had it fixed the very next day. I really trust Mike and his crew. They understood the work I wanted done and didn't push me into unnecessary fixes and parts. I will be telling all my friends about this shop and the great care I received! P.S. Mike's daughter works there in the front of the shop, and that really put me at ease. I felt like he treated me the way he would want her to be treated in a strange town.
    -Elly Waller

  • I was just at American Tire and had a complete service check and oil change. They were very professional and courteous from the beginning. They were very honest and thorough in their work. The workers at the shop were also very helpful when I first arrived. I would recommend their services to anyone in Reno looking for great auto care and repair. Thanks!
