Transmission Repair

Transmission Repair in Fairbanks, AK and North Pole, AK

As your car ages, you might feel like certain problems are bound to happen. This is not necessarily the case. Your transmission should not give you trouble, make odd noises, or impede your car’s performance. At Pearson Auto, we offer lifesaving transmission repair in Fairbanks and North Pole, help you drive safely, and offer all the amenities you need.

If you suspect there is an issue with your transmission, don’t hesitate to meet with our ASE-certified technicians. We also offer free second opinions if you got an estimate from another mechanic that was just too expensive.

Common Transmission Problems

We see transmission problems every day at Pearson Auto, and we tend to run across the same issues.

Common transmission problems include:

While there is no need to roll under your car, you can check the transmission fluid dipstick. (Be careful, the dipstick will be very hot if you’ve been driving.) Circle your car or look back to where you just parked for fluid puddles, and report any irregular shifting when you visit.

At times, the transmission might have been shaken from its mounting. Plus, your vehicle’s performance suffers when the transmission gets in the way. Your gas mileage will drop, and you might have a difficult time getting up to speed on the expressway. The situation could be dangerous because it is difficult to turn into traffic, brake quickly, or drive uphill.

Comprehensive Inspections and Diagnostics

During every visit to Pearson Auto, you receive a full inspection and diagnostic. We want to know precisely what is wrong with your vehicle, and we generate a report that goes into great detail. You might have other problems aside from the transmission, and we want to fix those problems before they make the situation worse.

If we discover metal shavings in the drip pan, we will search for the specific parts that were damaged. Plus, we use diagnostic codes to pinpoint other issues that might impact the performance of the transmission. Sensors, solenoids, or electronics might need replacing, or we can use these codes to understand how the gear ratios should be adjusted.
