Transmission Repair in Willow Glen, San Jose

transmission repair

Car transmission issues can be overwhelming. Fortunately, at Alvin’s Auto Center in Willow Glen, San Jose, we can diagnose and repair most transmission problems your vehicle may encounter. If the transmission malfunction is unrepairable (or the cost of repairs is prohibitive) we offer transmission replacement. Our Willow Glen auto repair facility is your one-stop transmission repair destination.

Your car's transmission ensures that the right amount of power is transferred from the engine to the wheels. Although transmission failure can be problematic, the good thing is that it doesn't just happen out of the blue. A car with a failing transmission usually gives warning signs that something is wrong, and you also can probably tell that your car is behaving abnormally. Here are some of the top warning signs that your car needs a transmission repair:

  • Transmission is slipping: This one is pretty easy to notice as it means that your car is shifting gears for no reason. This may result in further damage and, even worse, make your car dangerous to drive.
  • Issues shifting gears: it takes a while for your car to shift gears or car jerks while attempting to do so
  • Burning odor: You know your car quite well, so it may have low fluid levels if you start perceiving a strange odor. This results in overheating, which in turn leads to a burning smell.
  • Leaking fluid: A red fluid under your vehicle signs that you have a transmission fluid leak from one of the cooler lines, gasket, or a seal.
  • Check engine light is on: The engine light coming on is your car's way of alerting you of a problem that needs to be fixed. You might want to investigate what it indicates as transmission problems are also a possible cause.

Transmission problems require professional tools both for diagnostics and repairs. We recommend looking for a competent “mechanic near me” – naturally we think that our technicians, nationally certified by the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) hold the answer to your transmission problems. Having your vehicle’s transmission repaired by professionals gives you the peace of mind that is priceless – nobody wants to drive around worrying that the transmission can give out at any moment.
