Transmission Repair & Replacement
The transmission is the workhorse that sends power created by the engine to the wheels based on the desired speed. If you are having a faulty transmission, our technicians can get you back on the road fast!
During the diagnostic process, the technician will test-drive the vehicle in an attempt to duplicate the concern and utilize test equipment to observe the transmission’s operation as well as electronic components. Based on the results, it can then be determined if the problem with the transmission exists internally, externally, or by control failure such as the transmission control module, engine control module or power train module.
We guarantee our work and beat the rates of dealerships. You can trust our trained technicians to complete the job quickly as possible and with precision. Schedule an appointment today!

FAQ transmission repair & replacement
What is the average life of a transmission?
Regular fluid changes, filter replacements, and following a proper maintenance schedule are crucial for maximizing transmission life. Neglecting these can significantly shorten its lifespan. Most modern automatic transmissions, with proper maintenance, can last anywhere from 100,000 to 200,000 miles. Manual transmissions typically last longer, often exceeding 250,000 miles with good care.
What are signs that you need to change your transmission fluid?
The most obvious sign that it is time to change your transmission fluid is a warning light on the dashboard. Other signs may include the car's engine revving when you accelerate or go around corners, difficulty shifting, a chattering noise when you start driving, a slight burning smell or a puddle under your car. Like always, if you are uncertain about a noise, leak or feeling, we encourage you to bring your vehicle to Harris Automotive.
How often do you really need to change transmission fluid?
Which type of transmission lasts the longest?
Opting for a manual transmission means simpler upkeep. They require less frequent servicing than automatics and aren't picky about specific oil types. Cars with stick shifts often enjoy a longer lifespan compared to their automatic siblings of the same model.
