Transmission Repair Services

From manual to automatic transmission repair, American Tire and Car Care in Reno, NV 89502 knows how to fix the problem. Our knowledgeable auto experts will diagnose the situation and help you make a decision. Leave the dirty work to us!

Our competitively priced transmission services include:

Automatic Transmission
Automatic Transmissions shift between gears automatically to optimize driving, and changes gears based on the driver's throttle pedal, vehicle speed, engine speed, and vehicle load. Typical automatic transmissions have 4-5 forward gear ratios, a Reverse, Park, and Neutral gear. Shifting gears occur automatically once the car is in Drive and there is no need for a clutch pedal or gear shift like there is in a Manual Transmission. Automatic transmission repair is complicated based on all the components that make it up, and you need to have any automatic transmission issues properly assessed by auto mechanics. Call 775-786-8473 to talk to the mechanics of American Tire and Car Care about your transmission problems.

Clutches
There are clutches in both automatic and manual transmission cars, and different types of clutches. When shifting gears, the clutch engages and disengages from the flywheel and transfers the torque through the transmission. Clutches should help your vehicle start and shift gears smoothly. The clutch in your car receives a lot of wear and can eventually wear out. If your clutch begins slipping irregularly or is making noises that are raising suspicion, contact American Tire and Car Care to see if clutch replacement is necessary.

Four-Wheel Drive Transmission
A four-wheel (4x4) drive vehicle has differential gears, both front and rear axles, and a transfer case attached to the transmission. Four-wheel drive vehicles demand maintenance on the transfer case, front differentials, rear differentials, and transmission fluids. Visit us on 590 Kietzke Ln for service on your four-wheel drive transmission services.

Front-Wheel Drive Transmission
If your vehicle has Front-wheel drive, the engine drives the front wheels only. The power is routed through the transmission to the final drive where it is split and sent to the two front wheels through the drive axles. The engine, transmission, and additional hardware is all located in the front of the car. If you are in need, American Tire and Car Care of Reno, NV will gladly repair front-wheel drive transmission vehicles.

Manual Transmission
Driving a vehicle with a Manual Transmission requires using the clutch pedal and gear shift to manually shift gears based on the speed of the vehicle. Manual transmissions have been built with anywhere from two to eight gears. Front-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive are the two main configurations for manual transmissions. Typically, manual transmissions require less maintenance then automatic transmissions. At American Tire and Car Care, our auto mechanics can diagnose your vehicle and then recommend the transmission repair or transmission service you need to ensure safety and improve the lifetime of your vehicle.

Transfer Cases
A transfer case is a part of a four wheel drive system found in four wheel drive and all wheel drive vehicles. The transfer case receives power from the transmission and sends it to both the front and rear axles. This can be done with a set of gears, but the majority of transfer cases manufactured today are chain driven. The transfer case is connected to the transmission and also to the front and rear axles by means of drive shafts.Trust the automotive experts at American Tire and Car Care for all your transmission repairs.

Service, Diagnose and Repair
Transmission repair is not something to take lightly. The transmission is connected to key parts of your vehicle and needs to be working properly for your safety. Transmission services include replacing filters and draining fluids to prevent transmission damage. Typical transmission issues that may lead to repair may include shifting issues, slipping, stalling, fluid leaking, and the service light turning on. If you are concerned that you may need transmission repair, don't hesitate to schedule an appointment at American Tire and Car Care today.

Replacement
In motor vehicles, the transmission usually refers to the gear box, which uses gears and gear trains to transmit speed and tourque 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!
