Frequent Questions About Transmission & Axle Repair

Does The Garage repair transmissions?

A: We can replace transmissions, and perform basic service & repairs like transmission flushes, transmission filters, and gasket/seal replacements, but we do not currently offer internal transmission repair or rebuilds. But don’t worry – we know many reputable transmission repair shops in the Lakeshore area, and can make you an honest recommendation.

My car isn't shifting right/shifting roughly/"slipping gears, what do you think is wrong?

A: If your transmission is not shifting properly or is making noise, there is likely an internal fault. We can evaluate your transmission with in-depth testing to determine whether the transmission is repairable or needs to be replaced. We can replace transmissions, or recommend you to a trusted Muskegon auto repair facility that can perform a rebuild. 

My car has a vibration when I accelerate- what do you think that is?

A: If your car is vibrating while you accelerate, a variety of things – transmission, axle, suspension, or tires – but we’d need to take a closer look to pinpoint the issue.

Do you repair differetials and transfer cases?

A: Differentials and transfer cases provide the same basic functions as a transmission – and therefore are built similarly and require similar styles of repairs. Just like transmission issues, we can perform maintenance and basic gasket repairs on gearboxes like axles and transfer cases, but we do not rebuild units with internal gearing or chain failures.
